James Ellroy (Blood's a Rover, 2009) returns with the first book in a second L.A. Quartet, set in Los Angeles during December 1941. A Japanese-American family has been found dead, possibly the victims of a ritual murder-suicide. A note left at the scene suggests that members of the Watanabe family may have had advance knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Leading the investigation into the crime are Captain William H. Parker and Sergeant Dudley Smith, along with crime scene specialist Hideo Ashida and Kay Lake, a 21-year-old dilettante looking for adventure. An astonishing and brilliant crime novel.
Twenty-three years ago, Misty Banner was killed in her home in Virtue Falls, Washington. Her husband was convicted of the crime. Their four-year-old daughter Elizabeth witnessed the murder, but has no memory of it. Now, two decades later, Elizabeth, a geologist, returns after an earthquake hits her hometown. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose in California. The similarities between Misty's death and the killer's m.o. raise the possibility that Elizabeth's father, who has always proclaimed his innocence, is not the real killer. Is the killer still out there? Steamy romantic suspense from the bestselling Dodd (Lady in Black, 2014).
