Sweet La-La Land (1991)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Writer: Robert Campbell; Genres: Fiction, Mystery and Thriller, True Crime

Robert Campbell's tough-guy fiction — set on the streets of contemporary Los Angeles — is filled with the kind of crackling dialogue the old masters used to pull off so stylishly. Surely Campbell belongs in their ranks, even if his characters don't wear suits. Even if he was born 40 years too late. B
