DALLAS, NOVEMBER 22ND, 1963. Wayne Tedrow Jr has arrived to kill a man. The fee is $6,000. He finds himself instead in the middle of the cover-up following JFK's assassination. There follows a hellish five-year ride through the sordid underbelly of public policy via Las Vegas, Howard Hughes, Vietnam, CIA dope dealing, Cuba, sleazy showbiz, racism and the Klan. This is the 1960s under Ellroy's blistering lens, the icons of the era mingled with cops, killers, hoods, and provocateurs. The Cold Six Thousand is historical confluence as American nightmare. Fierce, epic fiction. A masterpiece.

Ellroy is the author of some of the most powerful crime novels ever written * New York Times * Astonishing ... not America corrupted, but America in its purest, uncut form * Independent * The Cold Six Thousand is as brutal and honest an exposure of the American Dream as anyone could hope for * Scotsman * Richer and darker than ever, this story ... reminds us how far ahead of his peers Ellroy really is * New Statesman * 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 *
