Absolutely fabulous book - just bought it second-hand for researching a current book project. The memoirs of Jimmy Richardson, a Los Angeles newspaper editor in the 1950s, which plunge you into a Chandler-esque world of gangsters, "painted ladies", crooked cops and murders in the dark alleyways of 1950s Hollywood. A fabulous gem from the past, waiting to be re-discovered!
