Publisher's Summary

Christmas 1951, Los Angeles: a city where the police are as corrupt as the criminals.
Six prisoners are beaten senseless in their cells by cops crazed on alcohol. For the three LAPD detectives involved, it will expose the guilty secrets on which they have built their corrupt and violent careers.

Excellent Book

One of the two best books by Ellroy...his "Cold Six Thousand" is the other. Gritty, suspenseful, and a great cast of characters. I love Craig Wasson's narrating skills, but I do agree with some other reviews that he appeared to be trying too hard on this one.

Nonetheless...highly recommend this Audiobook.

amazing book, amazing performance

the plot, while at times complex enough that I had to rewind, was very satisfying and engaging. the ending was both rewarding and somewhat sad. hands down the most magnificent performance by a narrator I have yet to come across. definitely listen to this book!
