About this item

Jazz blanco es una novela extraordinaria, el fresco brutal de una ciudad en la que reinan las ambiciones descarnadas, y cierra de forma magistral el «Cuarteto de Los Ángeles», tetralogía que se ha convertido en un clásico de la novela negra del siglo XX.Asesinatos, palizas, sobornos y extorsión: gajes del oficio para David Klein, teniente del departamento de policía de Los Ángeles, una ciudad atenazada por una compleja red de mafiosos, políticos y policías en la que nuestro antihéroe es conocido como «el ejecutor».Cuando en el otoño de 1958 los federales den comienzo a una exhaustiva investigación contra la corrupción policial, el caos se apoderará de todo. Klein es el centro de las acusaciones y su vida parece venirse abajo. Él, sin embargo, está dispuesto a lo que sea para poder salir vivo.ENGLISH DESCRIPCIONThe internationally acclaimed author of the L.A. Quartet and The Underworld USA Trilogy, James Ellroy, presents another literary noir masterpiece of historical paranoia.Los Angeles, 1958. Killings, beatings, bribes, shakedowns--it's standard procedure for Lieutenant Dave Klein, LAPD. He's a slumlord, a bagman, an enforcer--a power in his own small corner of hell. Then the Feds announce a full-out investigation into local police corruption, and everything goes haywire.Klein's been hung out as bait, ""a bad cop to draw the heat,"" and the heat's coming from all sides: from local politicians, from LAPD brass, from racketeers and drug kingpins--all of them hell-bent on keeping their own secrets hidden. For Klein, ""forty-two and going on dead,"" it's dues time.Klein tells his own story--his voice clipped, sharp, often as brutal as the events he's describing--taking us with him on a journey through a world shaped by monstrous ambition, avarice, and perversion. It's a world he created, but now he'll do anything to get out of it alive.Fierce, riveting, and honed to a razor edge, White Jazz is crime fiction at its most shattering.
