Check out the first L.A. Noire short story
, "What's in a Name" by Jonathan Santlofer.
"Names can be confusing, like mine, which is John, I think, though when I learned to write, Carole said it was Jon without an h, or maybe James, and when I asked her which one, she said, Who cares?"

, a series of original short fiction inspired by the game itself, today Rockstar presents for your reading pleasure the first full story release from that collection - as they introduce you to John... or is it Jon... or maybe it's James... A story of a sociopath with high hopes, and a curious knowledge of the Los Angeles underworld. And of a young LAPD detective working to crack the latest murder case to terrify the city.
