The pulpy, noir '50s Los Angeles sleeper hit is finally collected in one volume. Los Angeles. It's 1955. It's dark; it's sexy. It's dangerous. Everyone has an angle. And while infamous gangster Mickey Cohen rots in a prison cell, Los Angeles ignores the blackest parts of the city's heart...where clandestine groups of LAPD detectives moonlight as sanctioned hitmen knows as "Hit Squads." HIT is a dark crime drama filled with murderers, rapists, and drug lords...and the men who will stop at nothing to bring them to justice. Based on true events. Some of the details of this story and certainly the names have been changed.
