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.
