Fred Underhill is a young cop on the rise in Los Angeles in the early 1950`s -- a town blinded to its own grime by Hollywood glitter; a society nourished by newspaper lies that wants its heroes all-American and squeaky clean. A chance to lead on a possible serial killing is all it takes to fuel Underhill`s reckless ambition - and it propels him into a dangerous alliance with certain mad and unstable elements of the law enforcement hierarchy. When the case implodes with disastrous consequences, it is Fred Underhill who takes the fall. His life is in ruins, his promising future suddenly a dream of the past. And his good and pure love for a crusading woman lawyer has been corrupted and may not survive. But even without the authority of a badge, Fred Underhill knows that his only hope for redemption lies in following the investigation to its grim conclusion. And the Hell to which he has been consigned for his sins is the perfect place to hunt for a killer who hungers but has no soul.

James Ellroy ( James Ellroy , real name - Lee Earle Ellroy, Lee Earle Ellroy) American thriller writer. James Ellroy was born on March 4, 1948 in Los Angeles (California, USA), the son of a nurse and accountant. After the divorce of his parents, he lived with his mother. In 1958 she was killed - the crime remained unsolved. This tragedy and his father`s gift, the book "Police Badge", thanks to which he became interested in reading crime novels, played a decisive role in Ellroy`s life. He was expelled from high school for Nazi statements and enlisted in the army. He did not like military service and, worried about his sick father, Ellroy feigned a stutter, convinced the psychiatrist that he was unfit to participate in hostilities, and was dismissed "without honor" from the army. He returned to Los Angeles, but his father died soon after, and life for Ellroy clearly cracked. He was homeless, he stole on trifles, drank hard, began to take drugs, worked part-time in a bookstore "for adults." But Ellroy managed to turn his fate, which pushed him either to an insane asylum, or straight to the grave. He recovered from alcoholism with Alcoholics Anonymous, found a full-time job at a golf club - and began to ponder what would become his first book, the 1981 Mafia Requiem. Since then, James Ellroy has become a well-known and successful writer of the crime genre, having released about twenty novels. Perhaps the most famous work of Ellroy was the novel "Secrets of Los Angeles" (1990), on which in 1997 the eponymous "Oscar-winning" film was staged. In total, about ten films were shot based on books and with the participation of the author, including "Policeman" and "Requiem of the Mafia". Among the writer`s books are international bestsellers "Black Orchid", "White Jazz", "Sin City", as well as "Blood on the Moon", "Suicide Hill" and others. Currently, James Ellroy is working on the final part of the trilogy, which began with the novels " American Tabloid "(1994) and" Cold Six Thousand "(2001).  Official site , IMDb ...  Bibliography Series Lloyd Hopkins - Lloyd Hopkins 1984 - 1.
