Fascinating... flat out entertaining
A highly original and altogether splendid history... utterly compelling
Buntin has unearthed in the history of 20th-century L.A. a pervasive criminality that is far more appalling than anything to be found even in the most brutal novels of James Ellroy.
Completely entertaining... a colourful and entirely different take on the vices of Tinseltown.
Dragnet, One Adam Twelve, Police Story, LA Confidential all rolled into one captivating book. Buntin nails it in the great read.
