L.A. RexBook - 2006
As far as everyone in the squad room knows, Ben Halloran is completely fresh to the streets of the 77th Division, a soft white kid from the West Side. But demons from Ben's past catch up with him all too quickly and he and his partner are quickly drawn into a web of ultraviolent corruption involving hardcore Crip gangbangers, Mexican Mafia and dirty cops. In L.A. Rex, Beall has penned a wholly explosive thriller that takes readers deeper into the city's underbelly than ever before and positions him perfectly poised to become the next great noir laureate of LA.
