Product description

Clay is a successful screenwriter, middle-aged and disaffected; he's in LA to cast his new movie. However, this trip is anything other than professional, and he's soon drifting through a louche and long-familiar circle -- a world largely populated by the band of infamous teenagers first introduced in Less Than Zero. But his debauched reverie is about to be interrupted by a violent plot for revenge and Clay's seemingly endless proclivity for betrayal and exploitation looks set to land him somewhere darker and more ominous than ever before. 'A murder mystery -- a woozy, paranoid, hallucinatory version of LA noir' Sunday Times 'Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware ...Here, as in Less Than Zero, Ellis is plumbing the depths of human nature, exposing it at its worst.' Observer 'The novel is a kind of modern noir and, as in Chandler, the form's accepted master, atmosphere is king. Paranoia prevails' Independent on Sunday

In six novels, the author has emerged as one of the most gifted and serious novelists working in America today." --"Financial Times""Enough talk of [Ellis's] literary genius, let's call him what he really is: a terrific horror writer. . . . An absolute creepfest [and] a festival of panting paranoia."--"Chicago Sun-Times" "Brutally conceived, and effectively done. . . . There is no doubt that Ellis retains the ability to startle and disquiet." --"The Times Literary Supplement "(London) "Arrestingly spare . . . will leave you feeling bruised, guarded and a little nervous about noises at night. . . . What you really notice is Ellis's new
