Sweet La La Land

Robert Campbell. Pocket Books, $4.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-671-73236-3

In this latest ``La-La Land'' mystery, private eye Whistler rekindles a romance with an old sweetheart and searches for her missing son just as her former husband, convicted of murder, is paroled. ``Although coincidence is often stretched and the mix of melodrama and tough street talk is a little jarring, Campbell shows his usual skill in moving the story along at a fast pace,'' wrote PW.
