Leslie White is a naive young photographer who lands a job as a crime-scene investigator in the LA district attorney's office. There he meets Dave Clark, a young, movie-star handsome lawyer and a prosecutor. Los Angeles was in the grip of organized crime, and White was dismayed to see that only the innocent paid while the powerful walked free.

Review:

Brilliant... the nonfiction equivalent of the Raymond Chandler classics [but] utterly truthful, fantastic and new. --Los Angeles Times

A brilliant retelling of Los Angeles history and noir. --New York Times

It's rich, dense, mesmerising, encyclopaedic. --Paul Greengrass

Book Description:

Hard-boiled detectives, scheming starlets, and tabloid trials fill this gritty chronicle of how Los Angeles lost its soul.
