Publisher's Summary

A startling panorama of Los Angeles in the '50s.

New Year's Eve as 1949 turns to 1950, Los Angeles: The City of Angels has becomes the city of the Angel of Death. Communist witch hunts and insanely violent killings are terrorising the community. Three men are plunged into a maelstrom of violence and deceit when their lives become inextricably linked as each one confronts his own personal darkness.

    "Classic Ellroy, wonderfully narrated."

    For those who haven't read this book, it's great. The LA quartet is a fantastic and complex slice of L.A. noir. Additionally the narrator is amazing of really brings the characters to life.
