Gate a series of bloody bank robberies As the violence escalates and the case becomes ever vicious Hopkins will be forced to cross the line once again to stop a maniac on a murder binge. This third book of the trilogy was enjoyable as I coud see Elroy s writing and plot improve so much over the first two books Having read all his works except these three and being a big fan I was able to follow his development as a writer Having grown up in Southern California in about the same time as he did I loved all the local references in all his writing I could visualize every location Still waiting for something new from him

Suicide Hill

Detective Sergeant Lloyd Hopkins is the most brilliant homicide detective in the Los Angeles Police Department and one of its most troubled In his obsessive mission to protect the innoc. Suicide Hill is a crappy name for a book and the third book in James Ellroy s Lloyd Hopkins series of books The title of the books i just shitty I don t know what I would name the book but the title is blah Sorry demon dog I don t know anything about James Ellroy s motivation at the time of this book being written The cover of the mass market I read says a Lloyd Hopkins Novel as if that were being used as a selling point I get the feeling that Lloyd Hopkins was an attempt to create a reusable protagonist a Philip Marlowe for the cocaine eighties I don t know if Ellroy consciously ended the Lloyd Hopkins series of books with this one or if thankfully he just moved on to the start of his LA uartet D Pow commented already on how it can be interesting to see a great writer develop and that is what the reader can see in this book Many of the Ellroy themes and styles are beginning to be played with in this book They are used in earlier books of his too but this one is in a sense his final young novel before he seriously begins to put distance between himself and well the rest of the world of crime fiction Readers of Ellroy can easily find this book unsatisfactorily His language is loose here What he could say in a clipped five word sentence in American Tabloid might be seem like verbal diarrhea when it takes him a few sentences or a paragraph The words he uses also seem a little confused The lingo seems off The fifties are melding strangely with the eighties The worlds aren t jiving with each other I don t have any proof this is only a theory but I would say that Ellroy is not a historical writer The past that he writes about isn t the real past and the words and language the men and women wandering around in his books are a darkly rarified version of the past with Ellroy s spin put on them The language he uses to bring these characters up from the ether of imagination to haunt our own reality is a mixture of real slang with a rhythm and vocabulary running through Ellroy s head For this all to work Ellroy needs to put a temporal distance between the present he is writing in and the never ending present that he writes about because when he really gets going in another two books from this one there is only the present in his books a present hurtling through history and events at a speed that attempts to out run the demons of his characters pasts But all of this is the future Ellroy from when this book was written The Ellroy that would begin to show himself The Big Nowhere and Black Dahlia before finding his way and just demolishing everything that came before in LA Confidential and then streamlining himself into the dark creatordestroyer of American Myths beginning with American Tabloid and presently culminating in Blood s a Rover As I said this isn t a good book It s entertaining but it s a typical police crime book with a hard boiled cop and some tough characters The thing that makes this book stand out from a typical novel is the darkness Ellroy s view of LA and the police is about as loving as the portrayal of both in the TV show Dragnet but a Dragnet where Joe Friday burglars a suspects pad to plant evidence tampers with witnesses coerces a homosexual for information and then looks in as some of his fellow brothers in blue force a suspect to fellate a glock while being threatened with having his tonsils pierced with a nine millimeter round if he doesn t suck hard enough This Joe Friday wouldn t show up for another book but this book is the penultimate step to the cliff s edge

    In SUICIDE HILL James Ellroy puts the emphasis on a wayward bank robber and his delusional dream of converting a junkie into a rock star prone to tricking to feed her habit rather than the tainted series protagonist Lloyd Hopkins which gives the last installment in the Lloyd Hopkins trilogy a distinctly uniue feel to its predecessors Hopkins is once again a man on a mission to deliver justice by any means His sense of ri

    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 a

    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 Suspen

    I suppose this achieves Ellroy's intent so 5 stars Tho I'm afraid I can't articulate what that intent is If I understood people in general better One honest way to end that sentence is then I wouldn't suspect I'm on the Asperger's spectrumAmong other pieces I did admire the Confession scene Having given the penance he did in the form he gave it that priest would surely figure as I always do that the Holy Spirit has a gloriously weird sen

    This here is the clear bridge from Ellroy's earlier spottier works to the first LA uartet and what was to come and in many ways I like it than The Black Dahlia This one excels in the Lloyd Hopkins series for focusing on the
