Purgatorium: Volume 1
Connor Hinds, author
Los Angeles, 1946. The second world war had ended but the war on the streets was only just starting, Italian gangsters like Jack Dragna had muscled their way into LA and were paving the way for drugs, extortion, prostitution and all out gang warfare. In amongst the crime families and chaos, hotshot Adrian Hollis of the L.A.P.D is sent to investigate the savage murder of a young street girl in Downtown. He's a war veteran, a man with an incorruptible mind in a Police department full of dirty cops. What starts as a single case soon becomes a series of macabre homicides, including the infamous 'Black Dahlia' killing. With a string of suspects from the gutters of the City right to the elite, Politicians, Police and Cults. Purgatorium is a bloody take on a time people would call the golden age of Hollywood. Welcome to the City of fallen Angels!
