The Black Dahlia Study Guide

The Black Dahlia

The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy

Three years later, Blanchard is working in Warrants. His partner is leaving, and Bucky is up for the promotion. Working in the Warrants Department means working with the District Attorney’s office and investigating real crimes instead of handing out traffic tickets.

The District Attorney likes to hire officers who have good boxing records and wants to hire Vogel, the son of a friend in the Detective Bureau. Bucky knows that his promotion hinges on his next fight, and trains until he qualifies as a light heavyweight, a safer division.
