Description
Loosely based on the "Black Dahlia" case, this novel of Irish-Catholic life in Southern California just after World War II centers on two brothers, Tom and Des Spellacy. Tom is a homicide detective and Des is a priest on the rise within the Church. The investigation of an unidentified murder victim whose bisected body is found in a vacant lot in the shadow of the Los Angeles Coliseum provides the background against which are played the ever changing loyalties of the two brothers.
