Leona Brueger is the still-foxy widow of Sammy Brueger, who left her his fortune and mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Bored, she is dating a B-list movie director and looking to get a little excitement in her newfround freedom. When an esteemed (but broke) art dealer named Nigel Wickland sees the valuable paintings hung on Leona's mansion's walls, he hatches a plan to create replicas and resell the originals at a killing profit. The only problem is, this is Hollywood. A circle of young pill-heads dubbed "The Bling Ring" has taken to thieving from rich people's houses, and a pair of tweakers stumbles upon Nigel's heist--and that's just the beginning of the trouble. Soon "Hollywood" Nate Weiss, surfer cops Flotsam and Jetsam, and the rest of the team at Hollywood Station have a fullblown mess on their hands. Hollywood Hills is a raucous tale that showcases Wambaugh in vintage form.
