"I'm consumed with candor and wracked with recollection. I'm revitalized and resurgent. My meshugenah march down memory lane begins NOW." Freddy Otash was the man in the know in 1950s Los Angeles—a rogue cop, sleazy private eye, shakedown artist, pimp, and most notoriously, he was a strong-arm goon for Confidential magazine. He spent his life digging up dirt on everyone who was anyone in Hollywood, and in this savagely noir novel—written in Freddy's viciously entertaining voice—he's ready to confess everything.

"Graphic, stunning and in many instances hilarious…. No punches are pulled, and no literary expense is spared."—BookReporter

"Quintessential Ellroy, but with enough alliteration, Hollyweird flavor, booze, distressed damsels, communist conspiracies, and extortion to make this the most Ellroy novel he's ever written…. Wildly entertaining and memorable … Otash's voice is unlike anything else in contemporary fiction…. A spiritual companion to L.A. Confidential."—NPR
