RARA-AVIS: RE: The Long Firm

"Being new to this list I can't lay claim to having been turned on to anything new here yet, but I thought I'd pass along a recommendation all my own: Jake Arnott's "The Long Firm" (Soho, 1999). Simply put: an original."

Just to give a bit of critical balance, I also read The Long Firm and found it an unsuccessful homage to Ellroy's pseudo-histories. Thoroughly unoriginal, populated with two-dimensional characters with very little flavour or substance. Save your money.
