This was his first book I read and created my love for Ellroy's writing. I'd never read anything like it. The mix of 3 different character's storylines. The violence, politics, grittiness, and grime combine for an amazing crime novel. The 2nd and my favorite of his LA Quartet of novels.
I read this a long time ago but enjoyed the book and along with The Black Dahlia created my interest in James Ellroy as an author....EAF
