Thanks for your comments on Black Dahlia. It is great to hear from someone encountering it
for the first time.
It was in L.A. Confidential that Ellroy's clipped, stripped-down style debuted.
Ellroy was among the first hardboiled writers I read and I am completely in the tank for him,
but I can admit that this clipped style works better in some books than others.
