Story is *so* familiar. A James Ellroy novel, maybe. Hm. Gonna go look up the credits.

ah. Actually based on the LA Times article "Tales from the Gangster Squad," written by Paul Lieberman.

However, at the beginning of Ellroy's L.A. Confidential, you see some plainclothes cops tossing a hood down a hill off of Mulholland. That's bases on these guys as well.
