Read & Download The Black Dahlia ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The highly acclaimed novel based on America's most infamous unsolved murder case Dive into 1940s Los Angeles as two cops spiral out of control in their hunt for The Black Dahlia's killer in this powerful thriller that is brutal and at the same time believable New York Times On January 15 1947 the torture ravished body of a. Ah the post war years America s golden age when things were so much better than they are today When no injustice ever occurred and no one was unfairly treated Every pay check was a fortune every meal a banuet and the worst crime was the odd rapscallion stealing a pie off a window sill Or maybe sometimes the bisected body of a woman who had been brutally tortured would be left in an empty lot which would put a wildly corrupt police force in a frenzied media spotlight as the cops fruitlessly tried to solve the murderIt really was a simpler timeThis was the book where James Ellroy stepped his game up from promising mystery writer to a creator of epic historical fiction by mixing a famous unsolved murder with seedy LA history via flawed fictional characters Our narrator is Dwight Bucky Bleichart a former boxer turned LAPD officer just after World War II Bucky agrees to fight another cop named Lee Blanchard as part of a departmental publicity stunt The boxing match makes them partners but it s Lee s girlfriend Kay who unites all three of them into a family It s a dead woman that eventually starts to tear them all to pieces In reality Elizabeth Short was just another young woman who came to LA with stars in her eyes but her unsolved murder became one of those crimes that stuck in the public consciousness Ellroy has talked and written a great deal about how he poured a lot of his unresolved feelings about his mother s unsolved murder into the Dahlia case and if there s one thing you re sure of by the time you re done reading it s that he knows what it s like to be obsessed and haunted by dead women Ellroy is also fascinated by the shady history of LA and its police department and he uses that knowledge to craft a fantastically violent and corrupt world where the cops are often worse than the criminals they re arresting Almost everyone involved the investigation has their own agendas and the methods used to get what they want are brutal Nobody gets out clean when it comes to the Dahlia least of all those who give the most while trying to learn who killed herThis is a great crime story with a hard boiled edge that was one of the books that made me a huge fan of James Ellroy

Read & Download The Black Dahlia ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Beautiful young woman is found in a Los Angeles vacant lot The victim makes headlines as the Black Dahlia and so begins the greatest manhunt in California history Caught up in the investigation are Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard Warrants Suad cops friends and rivals in love with the same woman But both are obsessed with. I m not big on this whole going green trend but today I thought about one thing all book lovers can do to contribute to society use your library card often You probably thought I had something clever to say Sorry to disappoint but let me explain My Analysis of The Black Dahlia 324 pages in the book 67 pages until the plot begins to unfold 300 pages before the book becomes unputdownable as I like to call itWhat does that leave us withapproximately 67 pages of wasted paper and 233 pages worth only borrowing from the library only 74% 24324 of the book worth purchasing Granted I only paid about 5 for the book thanks to halfcom technically I should ve only spent like 40 cents Plus think about how many trees that could ve been saved if James Ellroy the author had simply gotten to the point But who s countingThe core of the plot is based on a 1940 s Los Angeles murder mystery The body of a young woman was found in a vacant lot mutilated cut in half and disemboweled Two detectives ex boxers take on the case and become overly obsessed with this young woman s life and death to the point where it literally destroys their own livesWhat I really struggled with while reading this book was the inclusion of random storylines as well as the excessive and mostly pointless details that made the book way longer than it needed to be For instance the first 67 pages of the novel are spent developing the relationship between the two detectives and describing their boxing past The author also over used police jargon which only made it harder for me to connect with the characters The book s only saving grace was the last 30ish pages where the twisted plot came into focusIn conclusionWhat I liked the twisted mystery plotWhat I disliked Ellroy s inability to focus on what was important to me the readerWhile this book may be worth reading for you mysterysuspense lovers out there I would strongly suggest that you save our trees and borrow The Black Dahlia from your local library Don t let another wasted page get printedPosted on Uptown Literatti
