Overview

A sunset cruise through a place where ordinary inhumanities are entertainment—with GPS coordinates, photos and more!



Los Angeles is where America’s dreams and nightmares got all tangled up. In this otherworldly place of seemingly everlasting life, death could have an otherworldly quality, too. In a city where anything was possible, even the ghastly could happen. Where else does a list of a city’s top five most recognized citizens include a mass murderer? Stand in the footsteps of Manson, the Hillside Strangler, the Night Stalker, the Black Dahlia’s killer, and the Onion Field slayers. Visit crime scenes where Hollywood’s weird history took fatal turns for O.J. Simpson, John Belushi, Ramon Novarro, Phil Hartman, Dorothy Stratten, Sal Mineo, and so many others.



“Meticulously researched guide book into the baddest of the bad in LaLa Land."STEVE HODEL, New York Times bestselling author of “Black Dahlia Avenger”



OUTLAW LOS ANGELES continues the series that critics, true-crime fans, historians, and travelers have hailed as “thorough and unflinching” and “the best damn crime travel series ever published!” Dozens of fascinating stories in OUTLAW LOS ANGELES are told in the same fast-paced, enthralling voice that’s made Ron Franscell one of America’s most beloved crime writers … and the Crime Buff’s Guides a three-time winner of TrueCrimeZine.com’s Book of the Year!

About the Author

Ron Franscell's writing has been compared to Truman Capote, Charles Frazier and Robert Olen Butler--diverse, poetic, evocative and muscular. This lifelong newspaperman burst onto the literary scene in 1998 with his first novel ANGEL FIRE, a poignant, mythic tale of two brothers wrestling with personal ghosts in the small town where they grew up. ANGEL FIRE was subsequently named among the San Francisco Chronicle's 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century West. He was a senior writer for the Denver Post. He has written true crime, mystery/thrillers and quirky travel guides, and his books have won rave reviews from true-crime legends Ann Rule, Vincent Bugliosi and Gerry Spence. His widely acclaimed 2016 true crime, MORGUE: A LIFE IN DEATH (co-authored with renowned medical examiner Dr. Vincent Di Maio) was nominated for an Edgar in 2017.
