Yup, Avon. I really liked those books when they came out. And I thought the Lloyd Hopkins books were great. In fact, I seem to be in the minority in preferring them to the LA Quartet, not to say I didn't think they were really good, too, just prefer contemporary (the writer's contemporary time, not mine) books to historicals. But as I've aleady noted, my estimation of Ellroy slid down a very steep slope between White Jazz and American Tabloid.
