SIGNED 1ST EDITION HARDBACK
A New Signed 1st Edition Hardback of ‘This Storm’ by James Ellroy with ‘1’ in number listing on title page. Signed at a Dublin event in May 2019.
A brilliant historical crime novel, set in Los Angeles and Mexico during the pulse-pounding aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbour. January, ’42. L.A. reels behind the shock of Pearl Harbor. Local Japanese are rounded up and slammed behind bars. Massive thunderstorms hit the city. A body is unearthed in Griffith Park. The cops tag it a routine dead-man job. They’re wrong. It’s an early-warning signal of chaos…
‘This Storm’ is James Ellroy’s most audacious novel yet. It is by turns savage, tender, elegiac. It lays bare and celebrates crazed Americans of all stripes.
