We are behind, and below, the scenes of JFK’s presidential election, the Bay of Pigs, and the assassination—in the underworld that connects Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, and DC …

Where the CIA, the Mob, J. Edgar Hoover, Howard Hughes, Jimmy Hoffa, Cuban political exiles, and various loose cannons conspire in a covert anarchy …

Where the right drugs, the right amount of cash, and the right murder buys a moment of a man’s loyalty …

Where three renegade law-enforcement officers—a former LA cop and two FBI agents—are shaping events with the virulence of their greed and hatred, riding full-blast shotgun into history.

James Ellroy’s trademark nothing-spared rendering of reality, blistering language, and relentless narrative pace are here in electrifying abundance, put to work in a novel as shocking and daring as anything he’s written: a secret history that zeroes in on a time still shrouded in secrets and blows it wide open.
