Perfidia

Ellroy, James, 1948- author

It is December 6, 1941, in Los Angeles. World War II has raged for two years in Great Britain and Europe. Japan has gone on a rampage in Asia and the Pacific - and America's entrance into the war is a widely accepted and utterly foregone conclusion. Los Angeles is mainland America's gateway to the Pacific conflict, home to the largest Japanese community in the United States. Bomber squadrons of the Imperial Japanese Air Corps will attack the U.S. fleet moored at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, within 24 hours. That catastrophic moment in U.S. history will be preceded by the murders or ritual suicides of a Japanese family in L.A., a scant dozen hours earlier. Massive roundups of suspected Japanese subversives will soon begin; racial hysteria will overtake L.A. The stage has been set for James Ellroy's largest, most historically dense and factually detailed novel
