Reviews
"One of the best Amercan writers of our time." --Los Angeles Times

"A blood poet who writes as chain saws crank, Ellroy has vigorously redefined the well-shadowed turf of contemporary crime fiction." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy's way with noir." --The Detroit News

"His spare noir style . . . hits like a cleaver but . . . is honed like a scalpel." --Chicago Tribune
