Dig this: the swinging sax man’s doing repos and plotting a kidnapping-of himself; a tommy gun is ripping apart windows, curtains, and bodies in High Darktown; a carhop at Scrivner’s is keeping two extremely sweet sugar daddies, Howard Hughes and mobster Mickey Cohen, happy, until the scene turns murderous.

This is the hip-hop hard-edged world of LA 1950s style: cars with fins, Commies in closets, starmakers with come-ons, ex-cons with guns, and cops with mean streaks as wide as Sunset Strip.

James Ellroy’s bizarre, stark tales dazzle us with their unexpected humor, raw brutality, and slightly lighter-than-usual noir realism. Hollywood Nocturnes is quintessential Ellroy: bluesy, black, and very, very hot.
