Summary
  • Three detectives in the corrupt and brutal L.A. police force of the 1950s use differing methods to uncover a conspiracy behind the shotgun slaying of the patrons at an all-night diner. A tribute to tough film noir crime films
  • "... thrilling tale of police corruption and Hollywood glamour in this adaptation of James Ellroy's novel. Three cops, a call girl, a mysterious millionaire, a tabloid journalist, and the Chief of Detectives fuel a labyrinthine plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance and humor. What you'll see is off the record, on the QT and very hush-hush."--Container
