In disgrace after a badly handled arrest in New Orleans, Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins is assigned as a liaison officer to an FBI investigation into 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.

    Los Angeles Times

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy’s way with noir.”

    The Detroit News

  • “Literate, suspenseful, honest…His pages crackle with maniac energy…Ellroy captures the vocabulary, the rituals, the smells and rhythms and colors of real people living on the edge…Nobody since Chandler has evoked so perfectly the seamy side of LA.”

    Austin Chronicle

  • “The book hurtles along with almost equal gore and slapstick, L.A.’s sleazy sides are brilliantly drawn…Ellroy can’t write a dull line.”

    Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sarah | 8/25/2013

    " One of the more 'readable' stories from James Ellroy. Less police talk, more intrigue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Erin | 3/14/2013

    " Lots of action with little difference between the "good guys" and the "bad guys". Unfortunately a lot of foul language and violence also. I had a hard time really caring about any of the characters. But it was a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Junio | 11/2/2012

    " Another audiobook I "read." The only James Ellroy book that I've read that took place in the 80's. The 80's were a really grimy time that really works well as a setting for him. It's a really plain narrative structure compared to other books by him. Also, excellent narration in the audiobook. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by William Thomas | 10/31/2012

    " A definite miss for Elroy. Confuses his 50's slang in this late 80's setting and makes the book soun as if it is having an identity crisis. Comes across as a more hard-edged Elmore Leonard, but that really isn't saying much. "
