White Jazz

White Jazz
Title: White Jazz
Author:
Serie:L.A. Quartet
Annotation:Killings, beatings, bribes, shakedowns it s all in a day s work for Lieutenant Dave Klein, Los Angeles Police Department. Trained as a lawyer in school, schooled as a strongarm on the street, bought and paid for by the mob, there s nothing he s not into and nobody s better at any of it. But in the fall of 1958, when the Feds announce a full-out investigation into police corruption, everything goes haywire.

Suddenly, the game Klein thought he was running has a new set of rules and they re not his. He s been hung out as bait, a bad cop to draw the heat,  and the heat s coming from all sides: from local politicians, from LAPD brass, from racketeers and drug kingpins all of them hell-bent on keeping their own dirty secrets hidden. For Klein, forty-two and going on dead,  it s dues time.

And it s Klein who tells his own story his voice clipped and sharp and as brutal as the events he s describing taking us with him on a hellish journey through a world shaped by monstrous ambition, greed, and perversion. It s a world he helped create, but now he ll do anything to get out of it alive &

Fierce, riveting, and honed to a razor-edge, White Jazz is crime fiction at its most shattering, and the most explosive novel yet from James Ellroy.
