If you like hardboiled crime fiction, this is a book for you. It's tough to write a short story, but Ellroy does a great job. He gives no holds barred action and intriguing plot. Poor yourself a scotch and soda and chill with a hardcore cast.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Excellent Short Stories
While some crime writers such as Hammett seem cramped in the short story format and used it as a start before getting full novels published Ellroy went from novels to short stories and this is a fantastic collection. The quality is as good as in his novels and the stories are very well done.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
