Ellroy's furiously paced narrative tracks Tedrow's ride: Dallas back to Vegas, with the Mob and Howard Hughes, south with the Klan and J. Edgar Hoover, shipping out to Vietnam and returning home, the bearer of white powder, plotting new death as 1968 approaches...
Tedrow stands witness - as the icons of an iconic era mingle with cops, killers, hoods, and provocateurs. His story is ground zero in Ellroy's stunning vision: historical confluence as American Nightmare.

though story, appetiser for more American history
Hard to follow for a non-native US-American English speaker. But the story becomes more and more gripping, if you can get used to the style. Quite a surprise for a naive European, and it creates some curiosity reading a history book about this time.
Brilliant reading by Craig Wasson.
