    Paperback ☆ Clandestine PDF Ø clandestine book, Clandestine Epub 'Wonder' meant the same thing to both of us the job the streets the people and the mutable ethos of we who had to deal daily with drunks hopheads gunsels wienie waggers hookers reffer smokers burglars and the unamed lonely detritus of the human race James Ellroy ClandestineAn early Ellroy that planted many of the themes and dark LA seeds that would eventually sprout and mature in his LA uartet novels The Black Dahlia The Big Nowhere LA Confidential White Jazz The book isn't as good as his uartet but if you've finished the four and are looking for Ellroy LA Noir this is a good place to check out It was originally published in the early 8

    Paperback ☆ Clandestine PDF Ø clandestine book, Clandestine EpubA cracking piece of crime fiction and an early and personal novel from Ellroy after the slaying of his own mother Here in 50's Los Angles ambitious rookie cop Fred Underhill who is also too cocky and smug for his own good tackles a murder case involving a strangled female to try and get a name for himself so he is catapulted up through the ranks the woman in uestion was a lonely dame he had recently picked up in bar and spent the night with Eventually this would lead him to team up with the fearsome and psychotic Lieutenant Dudley Smith his first outing for Ellroy but things don't go to plan and in the end he is forced to stand down A few years later another killing similar to the one before and this lingers in his mind and stays there once a cop always a cop and it's not long before he starts up another investigation on his own which will send him on a journey of obsession into the d

    Paperback ☆ Clandestine PDF Ø clandestine book, Clandestine EpubI haven't looked into where this sits in Ellroy's oeuvre but it's a bit of a mess Plus side a few of the characters are the most compelling of Ellroy's creations I really didn't know what was really going on until the last chapterDownside I had a very hard time understanding the motives of the very complex main character Fred Underhill Seems that Ellroy was trying to include as many disparate traits in one man as he could get away with and I don't think he really does get away with it Still a good uick and rich read but than any Ellroy to date it made me feel that I had to suspend judgement a number of times to move forward with the story

    Paperback ☆ Clandestine PDF Ø clandestine book, Clandestine EpubI love LA Confidential the film so much that I wanted to read a book that evoked the same milieu the same literary terroir while avoiding a retread of the same plot that would inevitably come with reading LA Confidential the novel itself What better way to accomplish that goal than by going to James Ellroy's other work Clandestine isn't one of Ellroy's most widely known efforts but possibly because it was one of his earliest there's a rough edged rawness to the writing that I found absorbing than some other obviously polished hard boiled novels Reading this was a bit like reading Hammett with a twist of Chandler sharp prose engrossing plot and complex and deeply flawed characters At times it seems that Ellroy is engaging in a public therapy session to work out his well publicized personal issues in his writing and I say

    Paperback ☆ Clandestine PDF Ø clandestine book, Clandestine EpubAn uneven but still compelling early entry from Ellroy's bibliography As with his debut novel this flashes his unmatched ability to create characters that captivate and disturb even when you somehow find yourself liking them The only issue with these early novels
