Brilliant

An absolutely harrowing book that takes liberties with some of the facts and characters of a real life murder in 1940s Los Angeles, written by an author whose own mother was also murdered by an unknown attacker. Some of the imagery invoked is sickening, but this is excellent crime fiction nonetheless.
