Customer Review

on 6 December 2013
There's a raw beauty to the writing here. Brutal, authentic, bleak, wickedly funny and always utterly compelling, flowing like the purest rap poetry, I can't think of any novel I have enjoyed so much this year. LA Confidential is a 20th century masterpiece.

Footnote: Ellroy was asked by a member of a book talk audience if he wasn't guilty of overdoing his staccato style just a touch and Ellroy, apparently an absolute pussycat, agreed that, yeh, she was probably right. Personally, I can't get enough of it. (Source, BBC Radio 4)
