Novels are collectible items exclusively found in the Remastered Edition of L.A. Noire. There are just 8 of them scattered around Los Angeles, making them the smallest collectible set. Finding all of them is not required for 100%, but will reward the player with the Well Read Individual achievement/trophy and the Hard-Boiled Detective Outfit.
The novels included, and their respective cover art, are from the L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories. While similar, the novel covers omit the authors' names that are included in the published collection.
