And three men and one woman have a hot date with history.Elmer Jackson is a corrupt Vice cop. He's a flesh peddler and a bagman for the L.A. Chief of Police. Hideo Ashida is a crime-lab whiz, lashed by anti-Japanese rage. Dudley Smith is PD 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.L.A. '42. Homefront madness. Wartime inferno—This Storm is James Ellroy's most audacious novel yet.

        Starred review from April 22, 2019
        MWA Grand Master Ellroy’s stunning sequel to 2014’s Perfidia opens in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve 1941. Anti-Japanese hysteria has reached a fever pitch and shifting alliances of left-wing and right-wing groups struggle to work out the best way to profit off the war. Dudley Smith, a police sergeant, has taken an Army commission south of the border, ostensibly to thwart Fifth Column pro-Nazi subversives and suspected Japanese submarine encroachments in Baja, but in reality to set up a lucrative wartime business smuggling heroin and illegal immigrant labor. Meanwhile, the L.A. police uncover a body in Griffith Park. Brilliant forensics expert Hideo Ashida, assisted by a talented young scientist with secrets of her own, must grapple with his devotion to Smith and his own conscience as he begins to piece together an intricate story involving a decade-old gold heist and a lethal fire in the park. As Smith squares off against Bill Parker, an LAPD captain on the rise, things get complicated and ugly very quickly. Just when it seems that things couldn’t get darker, Ellroy peels back a deeper level of corruption. This obsessive, wholly satisfying probing of 20th-century American history deserves a wide readership. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber Assoc.

      • content: 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: A plastic surgeon is a "snout doctor"; a hot couple is "madly enjoined"; and a flashy home is "turned out and si bon." The plot involves murder, missing gold, and a fire, all of which plays out against a dark backdrop of racist paranoia and anti-Japanese fervor. 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. R.W.S. Winner of AudoFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
