Because the Night is a crime fiction novel written by James Ellroy.
Released in 1984, it is the second installment of a trilogy often titled "Lloyd Hopkins Trilogy", after its main character, or "L.A Noir", after the hard-book copy that was released containing all three books in the trilogy.
Like Blood on the Moon (first book) and Suicide Hill (third and final book), it follows Lloyd Hopkins. This book was out of print for a long time, but was re-released in 2006 along with the first and third chapters of the series.
