No, I don't think I'd recommend this one.good story, tho some of it improbable. And when I thought he just left her at the show, I'm like okay homeboy pulled a fast one and had me fooled, totes thought he was a good guy.

Ellroy seems to be advancing rapidly in his skills and this book turned in to a real page turner. As with other Ellroy novels the narrative is infused with a dark, vivid intensity, each scene either full of tension or eruptions of graphic violence and populated by strongly defined characters.

That is what a great book Because the Night was.

Totally not expecting to sit up all night reading this with an ending that leaves me saying HOLY SHIT.

because the night (novel)

Sep 18 2020

I read the book over the course of 36 hours because it grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go! It's interesting then to see that his 3rd, 4th and 5th books (a cop trilogy) are so pedestrian and obvious. Gah! Because the Night is the second book in the Lloyd Hopkins trilogy. ;)If you're looking for a sweet romance, Because the Night is not singing your song. Because the Night is probably the strongest of the Lloyd Hopkins trilogy. That is what a great book Because the Night was. Callie is young, but not entirely naive, and in addition to carrying a torch from the ultimate summer romance of days gone by, she's also under the influence of a supernatural pull called bloodlust (the worst, most obsessive infatuation ever, a la drug addiction but, you know, with sex). :O Oh no you didn't leave me hangin like that Kristen :( This book had a little of everything, rockers, vampires, killers & sexy tension in it but full review coming on the blog tour. His L.A. Quartet novels—James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. How about some mystery? She cares for both men, even when she knows she shouldn't. Because the Night is a crime fiction novel written by James Ellroy.

I mean I expected to like it, but I freaking loved this story. Should be fun but the plot is specious at best. I have been totally thrown a curve ball here and just can not believe it. I generally enjoy James Ellroy novels but his detective in this book, Lloyd Hopkins, is unlikeable and unsympathetic. Callie falls for Blade, even though she definitely hadn’t intended to do anything except save Tristan from himself, but is he enough to take her mind off Tristan? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Another typically great book from Ellroy, my favorite crime novelist and a great writer. When she’s not writing, she’s often still in the land of make-believe—doing makeup for film and television. She enjoys spending time with the voices in her head—nudging the characters toward those bad decisions and a happily ever after. I am not going to go into specifics about the story as I don't want to reveal too much about this book, so I am going to keep this review very short and to the point.I am not going to go into specifics about the story as I don't want to reveal too much about this book, so I am going to keep this review very short and to the point.I absolutely loved Because the Night. It's not as powerful as the LA or Underworld series' novels but you can grip on hard to that nightmare rush at a lot of key points in this book. His Favorite Historical Ripsnorters: Try some history that will blow your hair back in these picks from the noir stylist, whose new novel,...A botched liquor store heist leaves three grisly dead. There are also vague references which were often difficult to figure out. Can his sanity prevail? It was all so abstract.

I don't normally read romantic books but I thought I'd give this one a try. From the master of L.A. noir comes this beautiful and brutal tale of a cop and a criminal squared off in a life and death struggle.Had a 'villain of the month' flavor with series protagonist Det Sgt Lloyd Hopkins squaring off against a manipulative criminal mastermind with a penchant to kill by proxy. During the first days of their vacation Callie meets Blade at a party. I found I didn’t even care what happened to the characters before the end. Kristen pulls off writing an adventure of illicit sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, and vampires in a Vegas setting where the plot is shaken, not stirred, and served with more than a few twists. The style makes for a gripping read, but it this case was off-set by a story line that felt it belonged more in Marvel comic book than police procedural -- mad psychiatrist super-villain versus rogue super-cop.

Lloyd didn't scream so much, which really bothered me in the first book. Her mission veers off the beaten path. This story is sometimes sweet, many times raw, with drugs, sex and rock and roll all in one.This story is sometimes sweet, many times raw, with drugs, sex and rock and roll all in one.Callie's pretty torn between her two men.

Noir series at book 2. Will he just spill into a messy recession into middle age, or has he got a little more left in that battered body of his? That is what a great book Because the Night was. He is one awesome detective. His motivation was also unclear, except that he may hI didn't enjoy reading this book, but I'm at a loss to say exactly why. The ending was so simple too.

If you are a fan of paranormal romance this is a must read. The bizarre stuff in here did not intrigue me because I was lost. It all catches up with out protagonist who impotently loses the bad guys to the law due to a lack of personal restraint. There are names given to the characters that resemble titles like "The Night Stalker" that confuse unnecessarily. About the time things started to "happen," the pace lagged quite a bit.

No, I don't think I'd recommend this one.good story, tho some of it improbable. And when I thought he just left her at the show, I'm like okay homeboy pulled a fast one and had me fooled, totes thought he was a good guy.
