Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A brilliant detective and a mysterious psychopath come together in a final dance of death.” New York Times
“One of the great American writers of our time.” Los Angeles Times
“Bold, electrifying…Ellroy strips prose to its raw, gleaming bone…James Ellroy is an American original, a sophisticated primitive as smooth as the snick-snick! of a pump shotgun and as subtle as the inevitable blast.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Ellroy’s writing is powerful…his pacing relentless…his characters real. He is a major talent.” Miami Herald
“Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy’s way with noir.” Detroit News
In Los Angeles a psychotic police sergeant and a psychopath are obsessed with sex. They tangle when the sergeant sees a connection in a twenty-year series of murders. When he sets out to solve them, much violence and sex ensue. The plot, by the author of LA CONFIDENTIAL, seems implausible, even for Los Angeles. But L.J. Ganser's confident delivery grows on you until you almost believe that the bizarre events are actually happening. He gives every character an individual voice and personality, which, given the prevailing level of psychological disturbance, is not a trivial feat. Ganser is an excellent guide for a wild tour through the underbelly of Los Angeles.
“L.J. Ganser's confident delivery grows on you…He gives every character an individual voice and personality…an excellent guide for a wild tour through the underbelly of Los Angeles.” AudioFile
“More than any other contemporary author, Ellroy gets inside the skull of the sadistic psychopath…A true original.” Jonathan Kellerman
