Reviews

An intricate procedural set in 1950s L.A. has crooked cops participating in a shoot-out with gangsters and in a precinct-house riot. According to PW , although ``even the most noble of the characters here are relentlessly sleazy. . . their grueling, sometimes maniacal schemes make a compelling read for the stout of heart.'' (July)

"Ellroy writes as if driven by demons. His brutal, staccato graffiti tips over into art'" * Sunday Times *
"'No emotion is spared; the writing is sparse, the plotting controlled. Not for the faint of heart, this is a big, powerful crime novel and possibly the first important example of the genre in the 1990s' Sunday Telegraph"
"'Empty of any unessentials and full of wise-cracking wit' Mail on Sunday"
"'Unputdownable' Time Out"
