Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“‘Empty of any unessentials and full of wise-cracking wit.” Mail on Sunday (London)
“Ellroy writes as if driven by demons. His brutal, staccato graffiti tips over into art.” Sunday Times (London)
“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 (London)
