LA Confidential Reviews


"Ellroy writes as if driven by demons. His brutal, staccato graffiti tips over into art" * Sunday Times *
"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 *
"Empty of any unessentials and full of wise-cracking wit" * Mail on Sunday *
"Unputdownable" * Time Out *
