Abstract:

"The fourth novel in Elroy's acclaimed L.A. quartet, soon to be a major motion picture starring George Clooney. Los Angeles, 1958. Killings, beatings, bribes, shakedowns--it's standard procedure for Lieutenant Dave Klein, LAPD. But when the Feds announce a full-out investigation into local police corruption, everything goes haywire. Klein is hung out as bait, "a bad cop to draw the heat," which comes from all sides. His story takes listeners on a journey through a world shaped by monstrous ambition, avarice, and perversion. It's a world he created, but now he'll do anything to get out of it alive. Fierce, riveting, and honed to a razor edge, White jazz is crime fiction at its most shattering. The fourth novel in Elroy's acclaimed L.A. quartet is the story of a corrupt LAPD officer who becomes trapped in the dark, seedy underworld he's helped to create.
