Summary (From the publisher):

Ex-used car salesman and author of "How to Buy a Cream Puff" Harold Dodge is familiar with all the ticks and tricks of car dealers. He's now settled in a regular office job where the only big deal is finding a way to impress his beautiful colleague Marianna. So when she approaches him with a proposition - to help retrieve her car from a low-life dealer, not unlike the Bird Dog Harold used to be - he can't resist the temptation. But when they discover that the car is no longer in the lot, what should have been a straightforward exchange begins to get out of hand. Unwilling to settle for any other car from the dealership, Marianna decides to unwind the deal herself - without informing Harold. And in locating her car and the papers, she unwittingly takes a key piece of evidence which could incriminate some of the most notorious criminals on the block. As the dirty dealings, mistaken identities and misunderstandings escalate, Harold becomes embroiled in a far more dangerous caper than he ever could have bargained for. A sharply observed, wickedly humorous and affectionate look at the absurd underbelly of LA, "Bird Dog" is a brilliantly entertaining debut novel from a talent guaranteed to join the ranks of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen.
