About the Author:

James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. His L.A. quartet -- The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential and White Jazz -- were international bestsellers. American Tabloid was Time's Novel of the Year in 1995; his memoir My Dark Places was Time's Best Book and a New York Times Notable book for 1996. His novel The Cold Six Thousand was a New York Times Notable Book and Los Angeles Times Best Book for 2001. He lives on the coast of California.

From AudioFile:

Another of Ellroy's (BLACK DAHLIA, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL) unremittingly gritty, well-plotted murder mysteries set on the mean streets of L.A. in the '50s. The story of a talented and opportunistic young cop tracking down a serial killer is not for the squeamish. Perhaps that is why the publishers chose Jeremy Gage to read it-on the theatrical principle of playing against type. He has a particularly UNGRITTY, almost prissy sound. In addition, he is not a particularly interesting reader and at times sounds fatigued, as if fighting off a cold. He handles the characterizations well, though, particularly the women.
