L.A. Confidential by James Ellroy

Image of L.A. Confidential

Los Angeles in the 1950s: from its fabulous mansions to its sizzling nightclubs, it is a sprawling center of corruption and dangerous passions. Now a horrific mass murder invades the bleak cityscape. And caught in the nightmare are three cops bound by honor, sin, and blood... Ed Exley wants to eclipse his policeman father's success. Bud White watched his own mother's murder — and is now a time bomb with a badge. Jack Vincennes shakes down movie stars for a scandal magazine.
