Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

This deliciously pulpy detective novel in the spirit of Elroy's bestselling L.A. CONFIDENTIAL tells two interlocking stories. Recently sprung from jail, a brilliant and unscrupulous career criminal masterminds intricately planned bank heists with a loose cannon and his brother. He hopes to raise ill-gotten cash to save the career of the singer/crack whore he loves. An equally brilliant disgraced cop doggedly investigates these crimes while fending off colleagues who want to see him kicked off the force. L.J. Ganser contributes superb diction, energy, and a voice reminiscent of Philip Marlow, but little else. He reads as if late for an appointment, breezing past every opportunity the author gives him for panache and distinction. Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
