January 42. L.A. reels behind the shock of Pearl Harbor. Local Japanese residents are rounded up and slammed behind bars. Massive thunderstorms hit the city.

A body is unearthed in Griffith Park. The cops tag it a routine dead-man job. Theyre wrong. Its an early-warning signal of Chaos.

Theres a murderous fire and a gold heist. Theres Fifth Column treason on American soil. There are homegrown Nazis, Commies, and race racketeers. Its populism ascendant. Theres two dead cops in a dive off the jazz-club strip. And three men and one woman have a hot date with history.

Elmer Jackson is a corrupt Vice cop. Hes 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. Hes gone rogue and gone all-the-way fascist. Joan Conville was born rogue. Shes a defrocked Navy lieutenant and a war profiteer to her core.

L.A. 42. Homefront madness. Wartime infernoThis Storm is James Ellroys most audacious novel yet. It is by turns savage, tender, elegiac. It lays bare and celebrates crazed Americans of all stripes. It is a masterpiece.
