Description

From Hollywood starlets to downtown taxi dancers, from Central Avenue speakeasies to clapboard Venice Beach shacks to Depression-era hobos riding the rails, this volume brings readers the masters of the genre, penning tales of love, lust and loss in the City of Angels. Some, like Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain, are literary lions. Others, like screenwriters Paul Cain and Leigh Brackett, whose hard-boiled prose shoots like bullets from a bootlegger's gun, are mainly known by cognoscenti. Sequel to Los Angeles Noir, the bestselling volume in the Akashic Noir series.
