"His spare noir style . . . hits like a cleaver but . . . is honed like a scalpel." –Chicago Tribune
"Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy's way with noir." –The Detroit News
“One of the great American writers of our time.” –Los Angeles Times
"Our best living mystery writer. . . . Literate, suspenseful, honest. . . . His pages crackle with maniac energy. . . . Ellroy captures the vocabulary, the rituals, the smells and rhythms and colors of real people living on the edge. . . . Nobody since Chandler has evoked so perfectly the seamy side of LA. " –Austin Chronicle
