    I have so few auto buy authors these days I used to have many but one by one I drop them when the stories turn predictable and the writing stale One actually died but anywayEllroy is heavy reading and his dirty staccato style is what makes the scenery come alive If you've glommed the rest of his catalog you know several players here Perfidia is a preuel of sorts to his other series It begins just before the attack on Pearl Harbor with th

    I guess when the notion of shared ownership was developed for the movies – so that the various Marvel superheroes movies and forthcoming Star Wars films all share characters and plots – James Ellroy was one of the lucky recipients of the original memo As here we have the first of a new series of crime novels which link directly into his LA uartet and The Underworld USA Trilogy and I will personally be disappointed if there aren’t refe

    Before I get into it all allow me to make a few statements for context; I have read every one of Elloy's novels My first exposure came in the form of his short story High Darktown which introduced me to The Black Dahlia pr

ώνων φέρνει κοντά τέσσερις διαφορετικούς ανθρώπους Ο αστυνόμος Γουίλιαμ Πάρκερ είναι χαρισματικός αλλά διαποτισμένος από αμφίβολες ιδεολογίες Συγκρούεται με τον διεφθαρμένο αρχιφύλακα Ντάντλεϊ Σμιθ Ιρλανδό μετανάστη και πρώην δολοφόνο του IRA Ο Χιντέο Ασίντα είναι ο μόνος Ιάπωνας στο Εγκληματολογικό της Αστυνομίας του Λος Άντζελες Η Κέι Λέικ είναι μια νέα διανοούμενη που αναζητά την περιπέτεια Θα ?. Where do I even begin to start Most all of us have heard of James Ellroy but I must admit that I was only familiar with his work by reputation and from the movie LA Confidential I have purchased his books but never read one until I decided to start this It grabs you from the beginning and I am amazed at the intricate plot and wonder how he can keep everything in order It is hard enough for the reader to keep up with all let alone the author I enjoyed the book although I felt it easily could have been 100 150 pages shorter since some plot lines are throw away than necessary or if necessary are just too darn long winded But we get to see in this book the beginning of many of the characters and corruption that he carries over into his later works Everyone has an angle everyone is trying to make a buck on the upcoming Japanese internment and the murder investigation is almost a side story to what Ellroy portrays as the corrupt LAPD Ready to tackle of his works

Perfidia

?μπλακούν και οι τέσσερις στην έρευνα για την εξιχνίαση της υπόθεσης και θα βρεθούν στο επίκεντρο ενός πολιτικού κυκλώνα –σύντροφοι αντίπαλοι εραστές πιόνια της ΙστορίαςΜε το Perfidia ο Ellroy εγκαινιάζει τη δεύτερη Τετραλογία του Λος Άντζελες και αποτυπώνει μια στιγμή της Ιστορίας με συγκλονιστικό τρόπο Μας καλεί να εξιχνιάσουμε ένα μεγάλο έγκλημα που με τη σειρά του εξηγεί το έγκλημα του ίδιου του πολέμο. I guess when the notion of shared ownership was developed for the movies so that the various Marvel superheroes movies and forthcoming Star Wars films all share characters and plots James Ellroy was one of the lucky recipients of the original memo As here we have the first of a new series of crime novels which link directly into his LA uartet and The Underworld USA Trilogy and I will personally be disappointed if there aren t references to his much less well regarded Lloyd Hopkins trilogy This is a preuel so younger versions of characters from both those series appear here And as a preuel it comes with the normal preuel problems if we ve read the original uartet a certain amount of jeopardy and danger is removed as we know which of these characters have to survive further why don t the characters in the later set but earlier written novels mention anything about the events of this book That s the problem of writing a preuel in a shared universe so much is already set in concreteBut incredibly we have than just the usual as Ellroy has given himself an elephant of a continuity problem by early on making clear that Elizabeth Short notable victim in the original LA uartet is the daughter of Dudley Smith the symbol of all roguish policemen in the same books Surely there s no indication of that anywhere in the original uartet and it s such a jarring link that one can only wonder why Ellroy thought it was a good idea It s like the joke in the last Austin Powers film that Austin and Dr Evil are brothers but that joke done for real by Ian Fleming for James Bond and Blofeld in some lost novel after You Only Live Twice Maybe it s a decision that will work better later on in this new uartet but right now it feels like an author having a character he likes and just shoe horning her in any way he canIt s December 1941 on the eve of and right after Pearl Harbour Two LA cops Dudley Smith and William Parker as well as police chemist Hideo Ashida find themselves investigating the brutal murder of a Japanese family and this being Ellroy dealing with the kind of personal demons which would fill an entire sub strata of hellThe fact that this is the second LA uartet suggests immediately that it s closely related to The Black Dahlia LA Confidential The Big Nowhere and White Jazz than the other books That s positive as it makes for a experience less hysterical and focused than those later novels It s not as good a novel though as those in the original LA uartet as it s still a bit hysterical and can probably be focused but it s aiming for the same targets and hits a lot of the time If you like those books you ll buy into thisJust a note though on the language Ellroy will argue that the reason there is so much racism and uestionable social attitudes in his work is that this is how his characters would have spoken what they would have believed I can accept that But then he s clearly having so much fun with the racism and with the various anti homosexualanti womenanti anyone who isn t a red blooded white American male barbs insults and slurs that it mitigates his argument somewhat Can he really say that he s just representing his character s belief system when he s clearly in love with the rhythm and pace he gets from using racial epithets in every other sentence I can see why some people wouldn t get too far into this book or into most other works by Ellroy for that matter and I also know why people like me who are well disposed to this type of fiction and to this author in particular can enjoy it whilst still being made

Ένα συναρπαστικό αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα από τον μετρ του είδους 6 Δεκεμβρίου 1941 Ο B΄ Παγκόσμιος Πόλεμος μαίνεται στην Ευρώπη και οι τελευταίες ελπίδες των Αμερικανών για ειρήνη εξανεμίζονται –οι Ιάπωνες μόλις βομβάρδισαν το Περλ Χάρμπορ Το Λος Άντζελες παράδεισος έως τώρα για τους Αμερικανοϊάπωνες ξαφνικά κυριεύεται από πολεμικό πυρετό και ρατσιστικό μίσοςΗ σατανική δολοφονία μιας οικογένειας Ιαπ. Hello Mr Ellroy Mr Kemper I hear that you are somewhat familiar with me I am Please tell me what you know Be succinct You are haunted by the unsolved murder of your mother which occurred when you were a child and led you to become obsessed with crime and women You freuently dreamed of scenarios in which you could save damsels in distress You let your rich fantasy life rule you and with no ambition or discipline you became a homeless drunk and drug addict in your teens You eventually hit bottom and got sober You became a writer and used your fascination with true crime and post war Los Angeles to create what you called the LA uartet You started with a fictionalized version of the Black Dahlia case and one of the books LA Confidential became an acclaimed movie You wrote a trilogy called Underworld USA that followed bad men doing bad things in the shadows of recent American history You investigated the death of your mother with an ex cop and published the results as a memoir You wrote a second autobiography in which you admitted that much of what you wrote about your state of mind in the first book wasn t true You recently published a new novel called Perfidia that you state is the start of a new Second LA uartet What are your impressions of Perfidia Please be brief Perfidia begins the day before Pearl Harbor is attacked by the Japanese Many of the characters are ones you used in other books like Dudley Smith a corrupt police officer who was a large part of the LA uartet and Kay Lake from The Black Dahlia Others are based on real life people like William Whiskey Bill Parker another LAPD officer who would go on to become the chief of police A new addition is a brilliant police crime scene technician Hideo Ashida of Japanese descent The murder of a Japanese family coincides with the news of the attack and the investigation takes place as LA is consumed by a mixture of patriotism and paranoia Corruption enters the scene immediately with many people scheming on ways to profit from the war even as the ships are still burning at Pearl Harbor That s a summary I asked for your impressions There is a lot here to appeal to your fans The wartime setting with a mystery that blends fiction with history against a LA that is completely corrupt is something that you know how to utilize to provide a gritty noir atmosphere Your plotting with the characters aligning and betraying each other almost at whim is as dense and intricate as ever Your style of short sentences in a stream of consciousness patter as the perspective shifts from character to character is still sharp and you retain the knack of writing scenes of brutal violence that seem to pass in moments yet leave lasting effects That s the positive side Please tell me where you think the book was lacking While some longtime fans will be delighted at the way you ve incorporated so many characters from your other books it also brings some of the problems inherent to preuels into the mix Explain If you know that a character is alive and has a career with the police department in a book set after Perfidia then I know that they will not die or lose their job in this book despite anything that may occur This naturally removes some of the drama Naturally Please continue If not done well the characters may act in ways or accumulate knowledge that seems at odds with the other incarnation For exampleview spoiler the idea that Dudley Smith is the father of Elizabeth Short the Black Dahlia is something that is pretty shocking and wasn t even hinted at that I can recall in his previous appearances hide spoiler
