A Criminal Line Up

I must have read The Black Dahlia about four times, now and I still love it even though I’ve come to see its many flaws. Ellroy had such a knack for hard-boiled dialogue, grotesque characters and dark scenes that I find myself swept along each time I pick it up.

These are the first of his books I’ve collected as part of the set, none of which I’ve read yet (accept TBD) although I look forward to diving in once again to his shady vision of the world.
