Ellroy, one of America’s greatest living crime writers, draws on the history of Los Angeles in his newest novel, Perfidia. Together with Walter Kirn, author of a recent riveting take on a Los Angeles cold case, Ellroy uncovers a corrupt city under the shadow of Pearl Harbor, where the investigation of a hellish murder of a Japanese family throws together and rips apart four driven souls.

"James Ellroy on Glenn Miller's Version of 'Perfidia'" at The Wall Street Journal




The title of my latest book was inspired by "Perfidia" [by Alberto Domínguez ]. I first heard the Ventures' instrumental version of "Perfidia" in 1961. When my old man heard me listening to it, he said I should listen to Glenn Miller's hit from '41. I did, and it knocked me out. It's still my favorite.




 



The Tampa Bay Times 




...if Ellroy's bitter visions entice you, Perfidia will take you once again to the underbelly of American history, seen through a glass darkly, as Ashida says: "All these covenants and agendas. They supersede human logic."
