Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Los Angeles, anos cincuenta. Tres hombres se ven atrapados en una tupida red de ambiciones, perversion y mentiras: Danny Upshaw, ayudante del sheriff y punto de mira de intereses ajenos; Mal Considine, fiscal del distrito que intenta promocionarse profesionalmente y poner orden a su vida privada; Meeks, ex narco y hombre fiel a un unico dios: el dinero. Por motivos distintos, los tres se veran vinculados a un grupo de comunistas entre los que un sadico asesino ha sembrado el panico. Por motivos distintos, los tres habran sacado billete para una pesadilla.

Synopsis:

Los Angeles, 1958. Killings, beatings, bribes, "a bad cop to draw the heat," and the heat's coming from local politicians, from LAPD brass, from racketeers and drug kingpins. Klein tells his own story, describing a world shaped by monstrous ambition, avarice, and perversion. It's a world he created, but now he'll do anything to get out of it alive.
