Three citizens are butchered during a liquor store holdup. An unstable veteran cop vanishes without a trace. Nothing connects these events except for a nagging hunch in the back of Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins' brain—a sinister foreboding that will lead him through the sin-and-sleaze playground of nighttime LA on the trail of a psycho psychiatrist with a talent for terror and mind-control. His gore-soaked journey through hell will plunge this determined manhunter into the dark heart of madness—and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Because the Night is as much crime fiction as it is literary fiction. Intense, abrasive, and compelling, this is Ellroy at his very best.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“One of the great American writers of our time.” Los Angeles Times Book Review, praise for the author
“An undeniably artful frenzy of violence, guilt, and unappeased self-loathing. Ellroy’s crime fiction represents a high mark in the genre.” Newsday, praise for the author
“A blood poet who writes as chain saws crank, Ellroy has vigorously redefined the well-shadowed turf of contemporary crime fiction.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution, praise for the author
