From the Back Cover:

LOS ANGELES, 1958. Killings, beatings, bribes, shakedowns -- it's standard procedure for Lieutenant Dave Klein, LAPD. He's a slumlord, a bagman, an enforcer -- a power in his own small corner of hell. Then the Feds announce a full-out investigation into local police corruption, and everything goes haywire.

Klein's been hung out as bait, "a bad cop to draw the heat", and the heat's coming from all sides: from local politicians, from LAPD brass, from racketeers and drug kingpins -- all of them hell-bent on keeping their own secrets hidden. For Klein, "forty-two and going on dead", it's dues time.

Klein tells his own story -- his voice clipped, sharp, often as brutal as the events he's describing -- taking us with him on a journey through a world shaped by monstrous ambition, avarice, and perversion. It's a world he created, but now he'll do anything to get out of it alive.

Fierce, riveting, and honed to a razor edge, White Jazz is crime fiction at its most shattering.
