<<Am I flyin, or does this novel replay a lot of the character
situations from _LA Confidential_, the movie? I haven't got my hands on
that novel yet, but there's a lot of very close parallels here between
_Nowhere_ and that film, including the inbred sex triangle (quadrangle)
with the killer babe.>>

The Big Nowhere precedes L.A. Confidential (the novel). All four of the
L.A. Quartet novels share some characters (notably, ultra-bad guys
Dudley Smith and Buzz Meeks). I have not seen the film of L.A.
Confidential, but I am sure others here have.
