Publisher's Summary

In Los Angeles, in 1953, six innocent people are gunned down at an all-night diner. Three policemen arrive to investigate: Ed Exley, goaded by his father's success on the force and burning to eclipse him; Bud White, witness to his mother's murder, a time bomb with a badge; and Jack Vincennes, a former addict and a shake-down artist who works celebrities. Worse yet, these three see themselves as rivals. Their rage mirrors that of the killers they seek, and all are players in a game without rules or survivors.


What the Critics Say

"Ellroy spares no sensibilities." (Los Angeles Times)
"Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of Ellroy's way with noir." (Detroit News)
"Ellroy is a unique voice in American fiction, and L.A. Confidential, his premier creation, is destined to be a classic." (Jonathan Kellerman)
