About the Author:

James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. He is the author of the acclaimed 'LA Quartet': The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, LA Confidential and White Jazz. His most recent novel, Blood's a Rover, completes the magisterial 'Underworld USA Trilogy' - the first two volumes of which (American Tabloid and The Cold Six Thousand) were both Sunday Times bestsellers.

Review:

"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
