A Scrapbook of Noir Los Angeles Heretofore kept tightly secured under lock and key in police files, the hundreds of historic scene-of -crime photos collected in this book were assembled by a now-deceased Los Angeles police detective. Packed with unflinchingly graphic on-site forensic photos, mug shots, pictures of celebrity homocides, morbidly voyeuristic shots of 'freaks,' accidents, and legal executions, this hard-to-put-down collection is accompanied by Katherine Dunn's provocative explanatory text.

Loved this. Very graphic, but if you have a urge to feed your morbid curiosity then this will do it. Only wish there were more of a background about the pictures but because it is sort of set as a scrap book you only get quick blurbs. Read full review
