James Ellroys fictional investigation of the real life - never solved - murder of semi-prostitute Betty Short has left a burning inpression on me. The caracthers are very complex and the plot is so too. Ellroy is capable of creating a story where everything is important, but irrelevant at the same time, so that the reader will be puzzled right to the end. To read this book is no mistake!
