The wrap up to Ellroy's Lloyd Hopkins trilogy winds up with Ellroy figuring out the next to last of the tools he needs structuring his book around multiple protagonists and how their desires weave together to form a larger tapestry of crime and redemptionI've got a few of Ellroy's early books to read but from what I can tell the last and arguably greatest decision Ellroy makes to eschew contemporaneousness and set all of his books forty years behind the times is a decision made outside of his novels But Suicide Hill only underscores the sense of the decision Suicide Hill's handling of punk rock and music videos is hilariously out of touch with reality the work of someone falling violently out of touch with pop culture Although say the crazed Mexican nightclubwhorehouse of The Black Dahlia is undoubtedly eually absurd and barely grounded in reality the remove of history allows Ellroy to keep his cartoonishness without losing the edge he wants Realizing he was a man out of time and capitalizing it was one of the shrewdest moves Ellroy arguably the shrewdest writer in American crime fiction ever madeThe other shrewd move Making his antagonists as tortured and desperate for redemption as his hero Although none of the trio of bank robbers reaches anything like the depth of Ed Exley or Dave Klein or fill in your favorite Ellroy character here frankly Lloyd Hopkins doesn't either While no longer the tortured geniusembarrassing authorial stand of Blood on the Moon Hopkins still isn't uite a fully developed character Only near the end when he sees in other policemen the arrogance and violence he's perpetuated does he start to seem like the type of character would come to excel in the haunted thugOn the plus side the amphetamine popping is back after a noticeable absence in Because The Night men scream almost as much as they did in Blood On The Moon and every single car fishtails On the negative side of things the depiction of women is terrible in this book even by James Ellroy standards I'd have to re read it to be sure but apart from a woman bank teller who maybe says one sentence before having her head blown off every single woman in this book is motivated by both sex and money The racism isn't nearly as bad as it usually is but the homophobia is worse Obviously reading Ellroy is by definition the opposite of a politically correct experience but again staging the racist and xenophobic misandry against the scrim of the distant past does wonder for mitigating the bad aftertasteI tell myself I'll write up reviews for all the books I've read this year and hey maybe I even will but if you're a fan of Ellroy's later work and is curious to see how it developed and how badly it worked until it worked brilliantly I recommend all three of the Lloyd Hopkins books

Suicide Hillícitos raptar lhes as namoradas forçando os assim a cooperar O jogo de Duane rapidamente degenera numa espiral de violência enuanto Hopkins se vê envolvido numa atmosfera conspirativa entre os seus próprios colegas do departamento de Políc. In Suicide Hill 1986 James Ellroy is still feeling his way toward the staccato connect the dots style that marks his later better known period noir works such as LA Confidential and American Tabloid Billed as A Sgt Lloyd Hopkins Novel of Suspense it's the finale in a trilogy starring a brilliant but morally casual police investigator with decided emotional sexual and violence issues I mean crooks and other cops all call him Crazy Lloyd Hopkins Yeah In this one he tries to solve a couple of bank robberies While trying to save his job And fix his broken marriage The usual stuff It's better than the previous Hopkins novel the tedious Because the Night and accessible than Ellroy's later stuff but still florid and overwrought and the patter cops are pigs and fuzz and women are bimbos often seems trite than snappy For hardcore Ellroy fans only
