Publisher's Summary

In disgrace after a badly handled arrest in New Orleans, Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins is assigned as a liaison officer to an FBI investigation of a series of diabolical and clever bank robberies. Three men have done their homework: they choose bank managers who are having affairs, kidnap their girlfriends, and force the managers to open the banks early. When the bank robbers turn violent, Hopkins finds himself with a bit of information he would rather not have - information about police corruption that reaches into the office of his sworn enemy Fred Gaffney, head of the Internal Affairs Division.

I've read or listened to most of Ellroy's work but I was not aware of this series until I found it browsing Audible. The book is set in Hollywood during the Disco Era. The protagonist is a brilliant detective with a truckload of personal demons. The bad guy is a highly intelligent auto mechanic who is trying desperately to hang on to the love of his life.
This is not the "normal" noir Ellroy. The narrator does an excellent job. Give it a listen.
