A fine first edition, with some minor foxing to the top of the page block. In a very good unclipped dust jacket, with some wear to the top corners and top of spine, and several light surface marks to both covers.
Christmas 1951, Los Angeles: a city where the police are as corrupt as the criminals.
Six prisoners are beaten senseless in their cells by cops crazed on alcohol. For the three LAPD detectives involved, it will expose the guilty secrets on which they have built their corrupt and violent careers. The novel takes these cops on a sprawling epic of brutal violence and the murderous seedy side of Hollywood.
