Full description for White Jazz
Los Angeles, 1958: a city on the make. A boom town at the edge of a new era ripe for plunder. Lieutenant Dave Klein is in turn a lawyer, bagman, slum landlord and mob killer. Klein stands at the centre of a complex web of plots where violence and death will intersect. Told with his trademark blistering and relentless prose-poetry, White Jazz is a bleak and powerful nightmare of a crime thriller, and a fitting conclusion to the LA Quartet. It is one of the greatest crime writers of all time, writing at his best.
