American Tabloid - James Ellroy This totally works - and, as a JFK assassination buff (see my shelf), I loved it. It took awhile for the book to convince me, and some of it is certainly artificial -- I guess that's the noir element (which I dislike; hence, the missing star). But the characters are rich and believable - the Mob dialogue is hysterically funny (and I'm a guy who rarely laughs) -- and the plot intricate and original. A definite page-turner.
