Read full description of the books:
Surprised to be giving an Ellroy novel anything less than four stars, but this one just didn't do it for me. An early work that is written primarily as a first-person recounting of a serial killer's cross-country reign of terror, "Killer on the Road" shows flashes of Ellroy's later greatness, but suffers from a plot that substitutes gore for suspense.
The events portrayed in this novel are harrowing -- and the narrator's lack of remorse is chilling -- but the novel fails to bridge the disconnect that exists between the narrator's thoughts & deeds. In the end, the reader is left feeling similarly disconnected -- not in an "inside the killer's head" way, but in an "I just don't much care about the people in this novel" way.
