Killer, (on the Road) though, is frightening!!!! It's on a par with Thompsons' The Killer Inisde Me.

I've read a fair amount of Ellroy, but in Killer on the Road, he gets so convincingly into the killer's head that it made me wonder about the author himself.

Those were the thoughts I had when I was reading the damn thing. In light of his sordid criminal past, maybe there is something to "wondering" about Ellroy's head. Reading My Dark Places sort of indicates that lots of the non-murderous stuff if Killer On The Road isn't necessarily "made up."
