Daniel Depp's next book "Babylon Nights" in his David Spandau series, will be released here in the US next month.

Here's the Amazon page for it Babylon Nights.

And here's what the publisher says about it on Amazon.

QUOTE
Fifteen years ago, Anna Mayhew won an Oscar for Best Actress. Rich, famous, and beautiful, she had the world at her feet. Nearly forty years old, Anna is being offered these days only bland supporting roles, the kind she got her acting started with. So she spends much of her time thinking up clever and dangerous methods of self-destruction.

But she may not have to kill herself after all. Anna discovers she has a stalker—Vincent, a crazed fan whose idea of love involves a straight razor and lots of blood. What better way to propel the name Anna Mayhew into film immortality? Enter David Spandau, ex-stuntman and private investigator, who has been hired by Anna’s sister Pam to protect the star. But Anna doesn’t want help—until she meets Spandau and decides she needs his intimate protection all the way to the Cannes Film Festival, where she’s slated to be a judge.

Spandau finds himself falling for Anna, as well. But there’s the not so small problem of trying to keep a woman alive who’d prefer to be dead. To complicate matters, Vincent has followed Anna to Cannes intent on a bloody consummation of their relationship and he is being tracked by Special, an opera-loving L.A. pimp trying to recover the mob-owned money Vincent stole from him.

So a deadly cat-and-mouse game that begins in the meat market of Hollywood culminates at the Roman orgy that is Cannes. Author Depp proves again to have the deadliest and most perceptive eye trained on the entertainment business today. With an enthralling, hair-raising final act, Babylon Nights is a twisted and sharply funny thrill ride that will delight Spandau fans and newcomers alike.

I love the subplot on this one, sounds like a real old fashioned detective story!

For those who didn't get it when it was released - or those who might want it in PDF format, perhaps to load onto an e-reader or just to keep on your computer - Loser's Town is available for download from Simon & Schuster UK FOR FREE and just for this weekend. I downloaded it yesterday. It's at the top of the page here: http://www.simonandschuster.co.uk/

The bonus is that it includes the first two chapters of Babylon Nights and I agree, that looks great!

DANIEL DEPP, BABYLON NIGHTS

Former Hollywood stuntman and current PI David Spandau is back on the entertainment scene when he is hired to guard Anna Mayhew. The aging Oscar winner and former tabloid headline sensation has captured the attention of a really disturbed stalker. She also needs protection as she is serving as a judge at the Cannes film festival using the opportunity to jumpstart her flagging career. Depp excels in his descriptions of the glitz and glamour of Cannes based on his considerable inside Hollywood knowledge that lends a sly charm to this clever casefile.
