SUMMARY LA 56 by Joel Engel Joel Engel ↠ 0 READ READ ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Joel Engel Los Angeles 1956 Glamorous Prosperous The place to see and be seen But beneath the shiny exterior beats a dark heart For when the sun goes down LA becomes the noir city of James Ellroy’s LA Confidential or Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins novels Segregation is the unwritten law of the land The growing black population is expected to keep to South Central The white cops are encouraged to deal out harsh street justice In LA ’56 Joel Engel paints a tense moody portrait of the city as a devil weaves his way through the shadowsWhile RB and hot jazz spill out of record shops and clubs and all night burger stands Willie Fields cruises past in his dark green DeSoto looking for a woman on whom he can. Ok 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

Several 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 Angeles in the 1950sFields spent several months during 1956 terrorizing the parking spots and lover s lanes of LA posing as an undercover police officer to separate the couples and assault the girls and young women Because Fields is black and his victims white Hispanic or Asian and because Los Angeles in 1956 is as segregated as anywhere the Stars and Bars once flew police can t get a lead on him But they have another possibility a former black LAPD officer fired f
