Staff Pick

The demon dog of American fiction is as rabid as ever in this latest dispatch from American history's foulest recesses. Marilyn Monroe has been found dead and fixer Freddy Otash has to clean up any traces of those darn Kennedy brothers. But this is L.A., and this is a mess that also involves white supremacists, Hollywood orgies, fascist cops, pill parties, and a movie studio that's got a world-class flop on its hands. Ellroy cranks everything up to 11 and you wouldn't want it any other way. The Enchanters is a speed-freak nightmare and FUN as hell. Dig it!
