The review (link) concluded:

Marilyn Monroe's death has achieved myth status, and Ellroy's take on it is at once a superb crime novel about the city he's always written about, a love letter to a very different time, and a narrative that ensures the Freddy Otash novels will be mentioned along [with] the novels in The L.A. Quartet and the Underworld U.S.A. Trilogy as some of Ellroy's best work.
