James Ellroy's legendary LA Quartet republished with a brand new look
James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. He is the author of the acclaimed 'LA Quartet'- The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, LA Confidential and White Jazz. His most recent novel, Blood's a Rover, completes the magisterial 'Underworld USA Trilogy' - the first two volumes of which (American Tabloid and The Cold Six Thousand) were both Sunday Times bestsellers.
"Ellroy writes as if driven by demons. His brutal, staccato
graffiti tips over into art" * Sunday Times *
"No emotion is spared; the writing is sparse, the plotting controlled. Not for the faint of heart, this is a big, powerful crime novel and possibly the first important example of the genre in the 1990s" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Empty of any unessentials and full of wise-cracking wit" * Mail on Sunday *
"Unputdownable" * Time Out *
