Quick recaps of some infamous L.A. crimes and trials written in a kind of jazzy, tabloid style. There were a few in here I hadn't heard of before, including one that took place right down the street. Bonus: Thomas Guide page numbers and directions to the sites. Thomas Guides!

This for Los Angeles history buffs--like me. Stories from the 19th century, through the gangsters and movie stars of the 20th, and even into the awful serial killers beyond.
These crime descriptions are quick to read ("Just the facts, ma'am") but what I love best is the locations at the end of the story. The homes of the criminals and victims and the sites of the crimes--if the places still exist--are spelled out so that you can drive by the places.
Thelma Todd's Cafe? Tiberico Vasquez' hideouts?

This book didn't really send me. All kinds of stories about crime and criminals in and around Los Angeles, starting back before the city properly existed.

Interesting stories and a quick read

I like the book. Some of these murders are well known, but the book contained details that made each story interesting.
