It all begins with a fairly routine stakeout of a pharmacy by the LAPD's only Japanese-American officer on December 6th, 1941, the day before the attack on Pearl Harbor. From there, James Ellroy's Perfidia reveals sides of the City of the Angels never disclosed in visitor's guides. The novel is told from the perspectives of four different characters: that of the aforementioned police officer; a restless, adventuring dilettante woman; real-life LAPD police legend William Parker; and Dudley Smith, one of several characters who has appeared in Ellroy's seven previous L.A. and Underworld novels. A rich panoramic novel from an author who can be justly compared to both Thomas Pynchon and Raymond Chandler.
