Product Description

Review

"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)

Book Description

Ellroy's back with the third of his LA Quartet!

Outstanding book! In my humble opinion it's one of the best written stories ever with lots of twists and turns surrounded by a dark atmosphere! Definitely a must buy!

Do not buy the Kindle version. A great crime book hampered by too many typos and grammatical errors. Buy a paper copy instead, until this version is updated anyway.
