True Crime Book GANGSTER SQUAD, That Inspired The Film, Available In Paperback Now!

If you like to read the book before seeing the film, then you’ll love this.

GANGSTER SQUAD, written by Paul Lieberman (Pan Macmillan), Non-fiction Paperback £7.99 is available in all good book shops now.

Based on his hugely popular Los Angeles Times column ‘LA NOIR: TALES FROM THE GANGSTER SQUAD’, this is the true story of a brutal secret police team operating in 1950s Los Angeles. It has inspired the major new Warner Brothers film of the same name, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. The film is released on January 11th 2013.

Based on hundreds of interviews with everyone from anonymous LAPD foot soldiers to the families and associates of those they pursued, Lieberman stitches together the story of Jack O’Mara, his dangerous colleague Jerry Wooters and their anything-goes war with arch-criminal Mickey Cohen and his budding rival Jack ‘The Enforcer’ Whalen.

Stake-outs, shoot-outs and even the famous Black Dahlia murder case, this is ice-cool narrative non-fiction at its best – and the basis for a huge and much anticipated Warner Brothers film of the same name.

GANGSTER SQUAD is at cinemas from January 11th 2013. Starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Yakuza Zero and Webbed.
