Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins can't stand music, or any loud sounds. He's got a beautiful wife, but he can't get enough of other women. And instead of bedtime stories, he regales his daughters with bloody crime stories. He's a thinking man's cop with a dark past and an obsessive drive to hunt down monsters who prey on the innocent.

Now, there's something haunting him. He sees a connection in a series of increasingly gruesome murders of women committed over a period of twenty years. To solve the case, Hopkins will dump all the rules and risk his career to make the final link and get the killer.

If you want to read good crime fiction, it doesn't get much better than James Ellroy. He isn't just a great crime writer; he's probably one of the best American writers of the last few decades, period. The Lloyd Hopkins books are top notch - but a word of warning, they're definitely not for the faint of heart. This isn't romantic Sam Spade-type noir. This is dark, dirty, psychologically complex neo-noir that isn't afraid to expose the disturbing underside of modern life. Hopkins is a flawed but compelling character and Ellroy is fearless in describing his adventures. If you can handle the heaviness, these books are definitely worth a look.

Weird start; weird book. Mixture of cop life, poetish (!?) jargon, gay tendency, serial killer, and how to get a girlfriend ( or a bed friend) when you got a badge. This thing will haunt me for some time to come...
