Los Angeles, 1950. Red crosscurrents: the Commie Scare and a string of brutal mutilation killings. Gangland intrigue and Hollywood sleaze. Three cops caught in a hellish web of ambition, perversion, and deceit.

Danny Upshaw is a sheriff’s deputy stuck with a bunch of snuffs nobody cares about; they’re his chance to make his name as a cop … and to sate his darkest curiosities. Mal Considine is the DA’s Bureau brass. He’s climbing on the Red Scare bandwagon to advance his career and to gain custody of his adopted son, a child he saved from the horror of postwar Europe. Buzz Meeks—bagman, ex-Narco goon, and pimp for Howard Hughes—is fighting communism for the money.

All three men have purchased tickets to a nightmare.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ellroy has come up with an ambitious, enthralling melodrama painted on a broad, dark canvas…At once taut and densely detailed, this is a mystery with the grim, inexorable pull of a film noir, shot through with a strictly modern dose of extreme brutality and a very sure sense of history and characterization.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A big, sprawling book, which lays on the atmosphere rich and thick.”

    New York Times

  • “Ellroy makes you feel as if you really are in the Hollywood of 1950.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “A detective saga, monster movie, social history, and contemporary novel in one.”

    Chicago Tribune
