Descripción del producto


"The most original crime writer of our time" (Michael Carlson, Spectator)

"One of the great American writers of our time" (Los Angeles Times)

Descripción del producto

Three of James Ellroy's most gripping crime novels featuring Lieutenant Dudley Smith in one volume. The Big Nowhere: In 1950s LA three men are drawn into the shadow of communist witch hunts and violent killings that force each one to confront his own personal darkness. But none is prepared for the maelstrom that awaits them. LA Confidential: LA Christmas 1951. Six prisoners are beaten senseless in their cells by cops crazed on alcohol. For the three LAD cops involved, it will expose the guilty secrets on which they built their corrupt and voilent careers. White Jazz: LAPD Lieutenant Dave Klein made the mean streets he works on mean. But now the FBI are out to get the cops who murder, bribe and beat to serve their corrupt careers and Klein is hung out as bait. Big fish leap at his throat - racketeers, narcotic kings and scum with skeletons they would kill to keep hidden. Three of the most epic and powerful crime novels ever written, this volume is an explosive journey through the dark side of recent American history, and crime writing at its best.

HASH(0x9d53a12c) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Three Noir Classics 8 de noviembre de 2013
Por William E. Wallace - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This is an excellent collection. There is only one thing wrong with it: it is missing what should be the first book in the series, "Clandestine," in which the Dudley Smith character makes his first appearance. This trio, however, gives Smith full range to demonstrate his villainy and brutally sadistic nature (his appearance in "Clandestine" is more of a cameo role than that of a major figure.)

These three novels are among the finest James Ellroy has written, on a par with anything by Hammett, Chandler or Ross McDonald. They are certainly better than anything by Jim Thompson, and at least as good as the novels and stories of David Goodis or James M. Cain. I consider them some of the best noir fiction that has been published since the form first appeared..

For those who have only seen the excellent 1997 film of "L.A. Confidential," the novel will offer a number of surprises. Not the least significant difference between the two is that the film version takes place in a relatively brief period of time, while the novel transpires over a number of years. In addition, the ending of the film bears only the slightest resemblance to that in the film.

While this collection of novels is presented as a series, there are actually three different ways the Dudley Smith stories could be offered: in this "trio" format, as the Los Angeles Quartet (these three novels and "The Black Dahlia," and the trio plus "Clandestine." No matter how the Smith stories are offered up, however, there is little question that Smith is one of the all-time great villains of modern fiction. To my mind, if you read none of Ellroy's works but the Dudley Smith stories, you will have certainly read the best books he has written to date.

Very puzzling. I seem to be the only one who has a problem with the writing style. It's like reading a teletype ticker in many places with revolving characters who take it in turns as central anti-heroes (there are no heroes in these plots). There were pages where I just couldn't follow who he was talking about. The vocabulary, supposedly 50's and 60's jargon, in many cases seemed just so artificial and inserted for visual effect, it was stagey. Just opening the volume to any page by chance, I read… "Rain had hit while he was applying the strongarm - hard needle sheets of it, the kind of deluge that threatened to melt the foothills into the ocean and sieve out half the LA Basin." Into a powerfully strong descriptive sentence that gives us a great image of the storm we find "applying the strongarm"? No, sorry. Further on the same page… "…he felt a beaucoup case of the sucker punch blues coming on." Sorry, no. These phrases are just too phony for me. I love detective stories but although these plots have too much negativity, are too crude, too brutal for my tastes, I'm not objecting to that, everyone has their own preference. Corpses with knives in their eyes are not my thing. Towards the middle of the third volume I gave up. I concede he's won so many awards, plus there are no negative reviews by the readers so I'm obviously just on another planet here.

HASH(0x9d5120d8) de un máximo de 5 estrellas great books, but unsexily scuzzy edition 14 de julio de 2012
Por Octave - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I bought a "new" copy of this via an independent shop (via Marketplace, iirc) and the actual book itself looks kind of terrible. (I should say that I do love---prefer---"omnibus" editions with multiple books or collected works in one nice volume, especially if it's a hardcover; it seems like this might be done more often in Europe and parts of Asia than in the United States, with houses like Library of America and Everyman being some nice and affordable exceptions for mainstream/classic stuff.) The font and printing was HIDEOUS in the copy I received of this edition of the trilogy. It looks so bad that it almost seems to be a bootleg or pirate edition, yet I think it's still in-print and available directly from Amazon UK, not to mention via U.S. Marketplace. Could my own copy have been a cut-out, a misprint? I'll never know, because it was cheap enough and legible enough to keep and read, but caveat emptor. I also wish it had contained THE BLACK DAHLIA, to round out the L.A. Quartet.

Enough has been written elsewhere about the content of the novels, but I think they are highly recommended to anyone who's the least bit interested in great American writing, "genre" or otherwise; and it's _required_ reading for anyone interested in contemporary crime fiction: top of the heap!

Elroy writes a great story of LA crime in the 40s and 50s. His characters are well formed and unpredictable.
