“...more ambitious than In Cold Blood and equally compelling” New York Times Hollywood 1963 One Saturday night a broken taillight leads two young LAPD cops to carry out what should be a routine traffic stop. The events that followed were nothing like routine and culminated in a bizarre execution in a deserted field outside Los Angeles. Before the night was over one man was dead, two would find themselves facing the death penalty, and one left to be tortured by guilt, shame and isolation for the remainder of his life. Considered by many to be Joseph Wambaugh's greatest work The Onion Field is a true crime classic.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
