Will Beall's Favorite Crime Novels
Dirty White Boys
No Country for Old Men
The Underground Man
Beall has written a sort of historical romance of Los Angeles history peopled both by fictional characters representing real historical persons and real characters(the appearance of Rodney King and Heidi Fleiss at the end), much like Walter Scott did when he wrote Ivanhoe.
There were so many peripheral characters popping in and out of the story; some appearing in both time lines, that it became a bit confusing.

Filled with jargon only a lover of cop drama would love, the book has a dark tone of realism that is certainly not for the faint of heart. Read morePublished on June 19, 2011 by S. Franklin
I found this book by accident looking through some medical books with my fiance' and I'm glad I did, this book is action packed from beginning to end, even though I agree with some... Read morePublished on September 21, 2010 by Jose A. Sandoval
