9780099558873: Brown's Requiem

Los Angeles - Fritz Brown, ex-alcoholic private eye with a stained past, makes do with car repossessions and classical music. Then he is offered a case by Freddy 'Fat Dog' Baker, an eccentric golf caddy whose sister has made off with a much older man.

This is the beginning of the nightmare: the underworld of golf caddies, arson and incest played against the backdrop of an LA surreal by night and bad by day; of long-hidden secrets that will drive Brown back to the bottle and to the gun: all conspire to make this one of the most hypnotic crime novels ever written.

Review:

"The man who calls himself the "demon dog" of American crime fiction is still the classiest act around." ( Daily Mail)

"The outstanding American crime writer of his generation." ( Independent)

"Ellroy is a master at juggling plot lines, using a stripped, spare noir style that hits like a cleaver but is honed like a scalpel" ( Chicago Tribune)

"An undeniably artful frenzy of violence, guilt and unappeased self-loathing. Ellroy's crime fiction represents a high mark in the genre" ( New York Newsday)

Book Description:

The extraordinary debut novel from the indomitable demon dog: James Ellroy
