Three citizens are butchered during a liquor store holdup. An unstable veteran cop vanishes without a trace. Nothing connects these events except for a nagging hunch in the back of Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins' brain-a sinister foreboding that will lead him through the sin-and-sleaze playground of nighttime LA on the trail of a psycho psychiatrist with a talent for terror and mind-control. His gore-soaked journey through hell will plunge this determined manhunter into the dark heart of madness-and beyond.

James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. His LA Quartet novels--The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential, and White Jazz--were international bestsellers. American Tabloid was Time's Novel of the Year for 1995, and his memoir My Dark Places was a Time Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book for 1996. He lives on the California coast.From AudioFile:
L.J. Ganser throws himself into his reading of Ellroy's noir account of crime and corruption in Los Angeles, and the result is often spot-on. Ellroy piles on the lurid adjectives, using vivid over-the-top dialogue. Ganser enters into the spirit of both, snarling, shrieking, and, from the sound of it, nearly spitting with the intensity of the delivery. The result is often great fun. However, at times the reading is a bit off from what the text indicates; sometimes Ganser delivers a line at normal volume only to end with a speech tag along the lines of "he shouted."
