    Los Angeles, 1958. Killings, beatings, bribes, shakedowns - it's standard procedure for Lieutenant Dave Klein, LAPD. He's a slumlord, a bagman, an enforcer, a power in his own small corner of hell. Then the Feds announce a full-out investigation into local police corruption, and everything goes haywire. Klein's been hung out as bait, "a bad cop to draw the heat", and the heat's coming from all sides.

    I've always loved this book and hearing it read by Scott Brick is a real treat. I don't get all the 1 star reviews. This is a really good book.

    I wish Audible would get some more Ellroy books. An unabridged version of "LA Confidential" would be a great start. Followed by "The Big Nowhere".

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. Even more than Peace Like A River. I just re-listened to them back to back and hands down this one is my favorite. Though PLAR is no slouch. I just liked this story better.

    Such fascinating characters.

  • The Cold Six Thousand

    In The Cold Six Thousand, James Ellroy's most ambitious and explosive novel yet, he puts the whole of the 1960s under his blistering lens. The result is a work of fierce, epic fiction, a speedball through our most tumultuous time.

    Snoodely says: "Plausible history"
    "James Ellroy is my favorite author."
    Overall

    And this is one of my favorite of his books. I had read it before in hardcover, but I really liked hearing it in audio. It seems that I get into the characters much better when hearings them. It's been a while and I don't remember who read this book, but he really brought it to life. 5 *****
