LA Confidential is epic “noir”—a crime novel of astonishing detail and scope, written by the bestselling author of The Black Dahlia.

In Los Angeles, 1953, six innocent people are gunned down at an all-night diner. Three policemen arrive to investigate: Ed Exley, goaded by his father’s success on the force and burning to eclipse him; Bud White, witness to his mother’s murder, a time bomb with a badge; and Jack Vincennes, a former addict and a shake-down artist who works celebrities. Worse yet, these three see themselves as rivals. Their rage mirrors that of the killers they seek, and all are players in a game without rules or survivors.

Quotes & Awards

  • “‘Empty of any unessentials and full of wise-cracking wit.”

    Mail on Sunday (London)

  • “Ellroy writes as if driven by demons. His brutal, staccato graffiti tips over into art.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “No emotion is spared; the writing is sparse, the plotting controlled. Not for the faint of heart, this is a big, powerful crime novel and possibly the first important example of the genre in the 1990s.”

    Sunday Telegraph (London)
