A great present for a James Ellroy fan, obviously. But also a good gift idea for any fan of the political-noir genre. Centering on the unrest and upheaval of the late ‘60s, this book ties assassinations, racism, communism, gambling and drugs into a tale and corruption and retribution, and of course, good and evil (classic Ellroy). Bet in about three years you’ll catch the Hollywood version on the big screen, but nothing beats the book.
