The basis of the major motion picture starring Billy Bob Thornton, KimBasinger and Mickey Rourke, The Informers is a seductive and chillingly nihilistic novel, in which Bret Easton Ellis, returns to Los Angeles, the city whose moral badlands he portrayed so unforgettably in Less Than Zero. This time is the early eighties. The characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. Their voices enfold us as seamlessly as those of DJs heard over a car radio. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy from the same dealers. In short, they are connected in the only way people can be in that city. Dirk sees his best friend killed in a desert car wreck, then rifles through his pockets for a last joint before the ambulance comes. Cheryl, a wannabe newscaster, chides her future stepdaughter, “You're tan but you don't look happy.” Jamie is a clubland carnivore with a taste for human blood. As rendered by Ellis, their interactions compose a chilling, fascinating, and outrageous descent into the abyss beneath L.A.'s gorgeous surfaces.

 Informers have been active during many periods of unrest in Ireland but, until Tudor times, they had never been an organized phenomenon until the twentieth century. The decision (or refusal) to inform is dangerous—thus the motives of the informers are compelling, as is their ability to deceive themselves. Drawing on firsthand and newspaper accounts of the Easter Rising and other events, this book provides a history of the gradual development of informing in Ireland. Each informer’s story details their life and secrets and the outcome of their actions. All of them have shared two experiences: the accusation of informing, whether true or false, and betrayal, whether committed or endured.

The police rely heavily on paid and unpaid informers: without them clear-up rates would plummet, and many crimes would remain undetected. Yet little is known about the informer system and how it works, for example: who are these informers? how are they recruited? how are they handled? who handles them? what sort of information do they provide? Recent high profile cases have drawn attention to the use of informers, there has been a growing debate about the subject, and many feel that stricter controls are needed - but how is this to be achieved without undermining the effectiveness of the system? This is the first book of its kind on informers in Britain, providing an invaluable source of information and analysis from key authorities in the field.

The struggle against an all-powerful government censorship agency continues in the thrilling sequel to The Stringers! In the first book, Roy Farrington seemed prepared for a life as a licensed journalist, but is thrust into the violent world of illegal newspaper gangs that control a post-earthquake Seattle after his father is mysteriously arrested by authorities. In The Informers, he continues the search for his imprisoned father and quickly rises in the ranks of his newspaper, even as he maintains an uneasy alliance with his old friend Casey Novak, now a federal censorship officer. That all changes when a news story nearly turns into Roy's obituary, and he quietly suspects associates within his own organization. A game of cat and mouse begins as he attempts to flush out his unknown adversary. Following a desperate prison-break effort to free his father, Roy is forced to confront the full horrors of government infiltration and subversion within the Emerald City. A gang-style war develops among both the Seattle newspapers and the feds as friendships are shattered, unlikely alliances are formed, and the true enemy is never known until the final shot is fired - and the last word typed. Laced with contemporary political themes and chock-full of non-stop action, The Informers is a must-read dystopian tale that never lets up until the stunning, climatic finale.
