Inhaltsangabe

A massive novel of World War II Los Angeles. The crowning work of an American master.

It is January 1942. Torrential rainstorms hit LA. A body is unearthed in Griffith Park. The cops rate it a routine dead-man job. They're grievously wrong. It's a summons to misalliance and all the spoils of a brand-new war.

Elmer Jackson is a corrupt vice cop. He's a flesh peddler and a bagman for the LA chief of police. Hideo Ashida is a crime-lab whiz, caught up in the maelstrom of the Japanese internment. Dudley Smith is an LAPD hardnose working army intelligence. He's gone rogue and gone all-the-way Fascist. Joan Conville was born rogue. She's a defrocked navy lieutenant and a war profiteer to her core.

They've signed on for the dead-man job. They've got a hot date with history. They will fight their inner wars within The War with unstoppable fury.

Kritikerstimmen

"Narrator Craig Wasson mans the mic like a jazz poet in this second installment in James Ellroy's L.A. WWII trilogy. Wasson channels Ellroy's poetic ramblings into an audio cadence that sizzles with the slang and accents of wartime Los Angeles..... Wasson has narrated Ellroy previously, so he's familiar with characters such as corrupt cop Dudley Smith and Japanese forensics expert Hideo Ashida. Wasson's reading delivers Ellroy's lyricism but also presents the harsh language of humanity's underbelly." (AudioFile Magazine)
