The case unfolds on Craigslist, natch: "WEHO SCENE OF THE CRIME SUNSET/LA CIENEGA Hollywood detectives from Columbo to Sam Spade to the guy with the lollipop will converge on your 2 BR / 2 BATH flat. Apt comes with hardwood floors and modern appliances: stove, fridge and disposal. It features hardwood floors and laundry on premises.
