Three men- a cop with a guilty conscience, a car thief in love with a coked out rocker and a thief under the power of his ex-boxer insane brother, all run into each other in a string of robberies and violence. Ellroy's street-wise prose is in full force here along with a much longer, deeper history hidden beneath the squeaky clean visage of the city of angels' police department.
I would recommend this to any Ellroy fan and if you are not a fan, this book is a good indicator of whether you would dig him or not. Get ready for a story where any kind of romance or cookie cutter heroism does not exist.
The second book was a marked improvement, a step forward on all counts, Hopkins was no longer just a clichéd hot dog who played by his own rules but a character with hopes and regrets. The story was great and was closer to classic Ellroy.
Suicide Hill is another step forward on a technical level...while not as suspenseful and downright weird as book two...Hopkins the character has never been better...the villain was also an improvement over the baroque psychopaths of the previous books. A solid read.
