Spade Hearns
Created by James Ellroy

It's 1942 in post-Pearl Harbor Los Angeles, and SPADE HEARNS is a laudanum-tippling P.I. who's wondering where the lights went.

Although he's also given us slacker eye Fritz Brown and 1950's scandal sheet editor Danny Getchell, Ellroy is best-known for his hyped-up prose style and his conspiracy-bloated tall tales of corrupt L.A. cops and historical figures.
