James Ellroy’s legendary LA Quartet republished with a brand new look
Los Angeles, 1958: a city on the make. A boom town at the edge of a new era ripe for plunder.
Lieutenant Dave Klein: in turn a lawyer, bagman, slum landlord, mob killer. Klein stands at the centre of a complex web of plots where violence and death will intersect.
“Recent novels by the likes of Carl Hiassen, Andrew Vachss and George V Higgins have at best been treading water. James Ellroy may be the exception. He seems in less danger of burnout than of going supernova”
New Statesman and Society
“A vivid, enthralling read... James Ellroy is the outstanding American crime writer of his generation”
