    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFOk an interesting read that somewhat blurs the lines between fiction and non fiction Obviously a great deal of the dialogue was fictionalized in order to make this an interesting and dramatic readWas a bit disappointed how long it took to build up steam and finally nail the criminal However this disappointing pace did provide some interesting and peculiar insights into the criminal's odd little mindWas hoping for a bit on the gritty noir life that ws LA at the time but it did offer some very interesting if not embarassing background on the racial tensions of the timeNot as interesting as some recent investigativetrue crime books I've read but certainly not upset that I gave it a go

    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFHighly recommend this book My father in law had told me some stories about growing up in Boyle Heights and about his “cousin” Danny Galindo the detective I briefly met both Margie and Danny at a family event on one occasion and of course this story did not come up But I got the sense of how close knit his family was I briefly spoke with Mr Galindo and met his beloved dog I had the honor of attending the celebration of life memorial Margie organized after his passing and I was amazed by the honor respect and sense of loss people expressed that dayAdditionally I lived in LA in the early 2000’s and drove an ambulance all over the city and the county for 6 years As I read the book I tried to imagine what the city looked like in the

    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFI struggled to get into this book At times it felt like a James Patterson with it's short chapters many only a page long and aspects of it didn't feel fleshed out enoughThe epilogue was probably the best part of the book as it ties up the loose ends and reveals injustices in the criminal system in the States in the 1950s to 1970s

    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFSeveral years ago journalist Joel Engel was conversing with retired Los Angeles police detective Danny Galindo about cases and Galindo told him the story of convicted rapist Willie Fields and his arrest in 1956 It took a little while before Engel came back to the case and finished a book about it but his LA '56 tells a very important story about law enforcement race and culture in Los

    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFJoel Engel's LA '56 A Devil in the City of Angels is a hybrid work of true crimenonfiction and fiction I know that sounds clichéd slightly chaotic and whole lot less descriptive than it should But it's really true Engel did his research dug up a bunch of facts surrounding the case interviewing prominent participants and investigated related news stories from the same time – all of which he includes in his book However and here's where it gets weird in an effort to create ch

    PDF/EPUB arnepistol.co ✓ LA 56 PDF ☆ LA 56 PDFI think this book captures the soul of LA better than LA Noir The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City even though it just glosses over the stories The whole unreported history of the African American community is eye opening and sad I really appreciate this book for introducing me to Galindo That guy is the real deal if there ever wasI'm very unsure how Fields's side was complied since it seems no one ever wants to talk about Fields I wish there was explanation of his sources on this side of the story It really knocks down the rating for me It is a compelling book that fills you in on a bizarre story but also leaves you with a lot of uestions
