Franky I bought this novel years ago, and can't find my copy. We should read this for the pulp fiction one of these days if it gets nominated. So, are you liking it so far?


Algernon (Darth Anyan) I finished it, and it was excellent. Maybe just a little too clever for its own good : the ending felt a little contrived, trying to pack too many twists in the story.

The sequel, L.A. Confidential, has been nominated three or four times for a group read, but I plan to read these books for myself, in order.

William Wow. Brutal and brilliant, raw and alive, elegiac and painful. A masterpiece of crime and personal desire and intense action, often obscene.


Algernon (Darth Anyan) I loved it. great review, by the way!
Thanks for the feedback. I'm still curious if the next books in the series are as good as this first one.
