Both written by James Ellroy, "The Demon Dog of American Crime Fiction."
The Black Dahlia
Based on the unsolved grisly murder of Elizabeth Short in 1947. It's a good book. Dark and Gritty, not one for your kids.
A Collection of Short Stories, I believe they were written for a crime magazine and collected for this book. I've actually not cracked cover on this book yet, but all of Ellroy's other works are good, so I can't imagine this being far off.
I've got duplicates of both of these books, which is why I'm offering them as trade, any takers?
I'd like some loose VAM bits/unis, etc.
