In disgrace after a badly handled arrest in New Orleans, Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins is assigned as a liaison officer to an FBI investigation into a series of diabolical and clever bank robberies. Three men have done their homework: they choose bank managers who are having affairs, kidnap their girlfriends, and force the managers to open the banks early. When the bank robbers turn violent, Hopkins finds himself with a bit of information he would rather not have—information about police corruption that reaches into the office of his sworn enemy Fred Gaffney, head of the Internal Affairs Division.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the great American writers of our time.”  Los Angeles Times
“His spare noir style…hits like a cleaver but…is honed like a scalpel.”  Chicago Tribune
“Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy’s way with noir.” The Detroit News
“Literate, suspenseful, honest…His pages crackle with maniac energy…Ellroy captures the vocabulary, the rituals, the smells and rhythms and colors of real people living on the edge…Nobody since Chandler has evoked so perfectly the seamy side of LA.” Austin Chronicle
“The book hurtles along with almost equal gore and slapstick, L.A.’s sleazy sides are brilliantly drawn…Ellroy can’t write a dull line.” Publishers Weekly
“Undeniable edge and punch” Kirkus
