From the acclaimed modern master of noir–a huge, electrifying, explosive new novel, his first since the international bestseller American Tabloid.

Dallas, November ‘63–the heart of the American Dream detonated.

Wayne Tedrow Jr., a young Vegas cop, arrives with a loathsome job to do. He’s got $15cm cash and no idea that he is about to plunge into the cover-up conspiracy already brewing around the assassination, no idea that this will mark the beginning of a hellish five-year ride through the private underbelly of public policy.

Ellroy’s furiously paced narrative tracks Tedrow’s ride: Dallas 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 deaths as 1968 approaches…

The Cold Six Thousand is the 1960’s under Ellroy’s blistering lens, the icons of the era mingling with cops, killers, hoods, and provocateurs. Historical confluence as American Nightmare. Fierce, epic fiction. A Masterpiece.

Reviews

"The quality mark of The Cold Six Thousand is that it can give heavyweight punch to even that most worked-over image, the shooting of JFK ... Knockout" * Guardian * "Richer and darker than ever, this story ... reminds us how far ahead of his peers Ellroy really is" * New Statesman * "The Cold Six Thousand is as brutal and honest an exposure of the American Dream as anyone could hope for" * Scotsman * "Astonishing ... not America corrupted, but America in its purest, uncut form" * Independent * "Ellroy is the author of some of the most powerful crime novels ever written" * New York Times *
