"An epic and bizarrely transcendental novel that represents an extraordinary achievement by any measure ... a genuinely impressive feat of sustained literary energy: 90% of novelists couldn't get anywhere near it...His is an awe-inspiring artistic vision and this is a novel that should surely be read by new readers as well as fans." -- Edward Docx * Guardian *
"The master of American crime fiction." * Sunday Times *
"A triumphant return to the violent fictional world where he started - 1940s Los Angeles ... Fans will not be disappointed ... It is populated by many of Ellroy's most memorable monsters, notably LAPD Sgt Dudley Smith ... Reading it made me want to return to the original Quartet." * Evening Standard *
"James Ellroy is back doing what he does best, weaving a tangle of tales set in wartime Los Angeles...I look forward, eagerly, to the next three instalments." * The Times *
