    1. “Hello, Mr. Ellroy.”“Mr. Kemper, I hear that you are somewhat familiar with me?”“I am.”“Please tell me what you know. Be succinct.”“You are haunted by the unsolved murder of your mother which occurred when you were a child and led you to become obsessed with crime and women. You frequently dreamed of scenarios in which you could save damsels in distress. You let your rich fantasy life rule you and with no ambition or discipline you became a homeless drunk and drug addict in you [...]

    2. Vacuuming. I loathe vacuuming. It is outranked in its futility and annoyance only by laundry. Thus, I read and read while my house becomes dirtier and dirtier. Until Perfidia. That fateful afternoon, when I put down Perfidia - unable to force myself to read any longer - and did the unthinkable.I start with the staircase, which is the easiest and most gratifying part of the house to vacuum given its hardwood floors and lack of obstacles. Begone powdery dirt and mud clumps! I reach the top of the [...]

    3. I would think that since James Ellroy is one of my favorite living novelists that I’d check every now and then to see if a new book is in the works. Nope. I think I treat all my favorites as Pynchon’s, new books may come out at some point but they will be rare like unicorns so it’s not worth poking around to see if you can find one (and this would be a sad way to find unicorns because you’re guaranteed to probably never find on if you never look). But my lack of awareness paid off nicely [...]

    4. awesome. just awesome. one of the best portraits of obsession in all of fiction of those books that just tractor beams the reader, grinds her up, and shits her out. blast me forth from your rectum, mr. ellroy! gobble me whole and crap me out! do it do it do it! it's awe-inspiring what ellroy does here: grabs tons of characters from his First LA Quartet* (perfidia is book one of the Second LA Quartet) and Underworld USA Trilogy** and throws 'em into his most densely plotted and highly charged env [...]

    5. When it comes to crime fiction I cut my teeth, hell, I fractured my fucking jaw on James Ellroy's LA Quartet. And as far as I am concerned, many imitate the man's style but this particular king is in no danger of being dethroned in this lifetime. Every handful of years or so, when a new backbreaker by Ellroy struts onto the bookstore shelf, I'm one of the first suckers clawing my way through the pages. I'll go on the record and say that, since Ellroy wrote The Black Dahlia and began his long tas [...]

    6. I have so few auto-buy authors these days. I used to have many, but one by one I drop them when the stories turn predictable and the writing stale. One actually died, but anywayEllroy is heavy reading, and his dirty staccato style is what makes the scenery come alive. If you've glommed the rest of his catalog you know several players here - Perfidia is a prequel of sorts to his other series. It begins just before the attack on Pearl Harbor with the murder of a Japanese family in LA. Throughout t [...]

    7. I guess when the notion of shared ownership was developed for the movies – so that the various Marvel superheroes movies and forthcoming Star Wars films all share characters and plots – James Ellroy was one of the lucky recipients of the original memo. As here we have the first of a new series of crime novels which link directly into his L.A Quartet and The Underworld USA Trilogy (and I will personally be disappointed if there aren’t references to his much less well regarded Lloyd Hopkins [...]

    8. Did Ellroy find the peace ? In all his précédents books, ther was a kind of fury, a rage. He vas haunted by the unpunished murder of his mother. The black daliha was the cristalization of his neurosis.Here Ellroy work as usual. He spendt a long time in the LA Library searching old news in archiv. This informations allow him to write his books.The subject is largely unknown and a little exotic. It is about the position of american people Japanese origin at the begining of WWII : murder, vexatio [...]

    9. DNF at 45 %!A couple of years ago I studied theology and some books I read was good and some books were bloody awful and almost impossible to get through. But one had to. But this one I don't have to finish so now I'm throwing in the towel, saying adiós amigoHasta la vista baby!Ps. I will read Black Dahlia someday, hopefully, that book will be better!Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!

    10. Ο Τζέιμς Ελρόι έχει αυτοαναγορευτεί σε «Μπετόβεν της σύγχρονης λογοτεχνίας» και, περιέργως, αυτό δεν συνιστά καυχησιά. Το μόνο σχόλιο που μπορώ να κάνω, αυτή τη στιγμή, για το Perfidia, είναι «πωωωωωωωω!». Ή «πσσσσσς!». Ή «απαπαπαπα». Επιφωνήματα γενικώς. Θαυμασμού.

    11. Από τον περσινό Αύγουστο είχα να διαβάσω βιβλίο του Τζέιμς Ελρόι και η αλήθεια είναι ότι μου έλειψε η ωμότητα, η περιπλοκότητα και η έντονη ρεαλιστικότητα των ιστοριών του, καθώς φυσικά και η σκληρή γραφή του. Αυτό είναι το έκτο βιβλίο του συγγραφέα που διαβάζω, αλλά μόλις τ [...]

    12. Before I get into it all allow me to make a few statements for context; I have read every one of Elloy's novels. My first exposure came in the form of his short story "High Darktown" which introduced me to "The Black Dahlia" protagonist Officer Lee Blanchard and his obsessions and demons. I was hooked. I devoured every word the man wrote before and since. My favorite piece is still "White Jazz"-the last of the LA Quartet and a sizzling piece of literature that still speaks to me in both style an [...]

    13. This roller coaster of a novel takes four central characters from the 6th through to the 29th December, 1941. They all revolve around the LAPD and include two antagonistic Catholic officers; William H. Parker, who is ambitious and wants to be the next Chief of Police and the corrupt Dudley Smith, forensic scientist Hideo Ashida, the only Japanese person employed by the LAPD and Kay Lake, who lives with officer Lee Blanchard and whose life, and interests, seem to orbit around the police force. Th [...]

    14. You ever see those bumper stickers on the back of Jeeps or Land Rovers showing the world (or any of us frustrated dads-who-are-late-to-pick-up-the-kids who happen to be stuck behind them) that they completed a treacherous, horrifyingly demanding physical trial called Ragnarok or Tough Mudder or Soul Carver or something? I think I need one of those bumper stickers that says Perfidia 2014 or 'I survived Perfidia 2014' or 'It took seven months but I finished Perfidia god damn it'. I don't mean this [...]

    15. A crime fiction epic set amid the backdrop of Peal Harbor, PERFIDIA, is densely rich in characterisation and bedded down with intrinsically linked sub plots that can, at times, be off-putting but ultimately rewarding. The first book in the Second LA Quartet, PERFIDIA reads familiar for those who have read James Ellroy's previous novels. Characters such as Kay Lake, Lee Blanchard, and Bucky Bleichert are re-imaged as their younger counterparts embroiled in a sinister sleep deprived state of uncer [...]

    16. Ένας πόλεμος. Η ανάγκη ενός εχθρού. Το κυνήγι Ιαπώνων. Σύγκρουση οπορτουνισμού κ ηθικής. Ένα τετραδιάστατο ψηφιδωτό του τέλους του 41 στο L.A εκπληκτικής λεπτομέρειας , με ένα χαλαρό σενάριο δολοφονίας που λειτουργεί συνεκτικά κ προσανατολίζει/προωθεί χρονικά την ιστορία. Μπ [...]

    17. youtube/watch?v=o8TrJJLe note della canzone che, oltre ad ispirare il titolo del libro, accompagnano le gesta dei protagonisti, appartengono ad un famoso hit melodico dell’epoca, un po’ dolciastro e quindi in aperto e stridente contrasto con la durezza degli eventi narrati.Nel costruire questo suo tentacolare romanzo Ellroy resuscita alcuni protagonisti delle sue opere più note ed esemplari e, di conseguenza, per dare una coerenza al corpus delle sue storie losangeline (molti personaggi vi [...]

    18. James Ellroy you master craftsman, you devil with details.Dennis Lehane in his review said “Ellroy’s prose style had transformed into a staccato bebop” and i agree.He can give it to you in rat a tat formation with short, sharp, shock, prose, and then he gives it to you elegant, with the narrative of one female protagonist in chapters that are from her journal on all that devil in the details.Characters at odds with each other, race troubles, pearl harbour in the backdrop, its all happening [...]

    19. I have to give this book two stars because THE BLACK DAHLIA and LA CONFIDENTIAL are the best crime novels ever written. James Ellroy is my hero and always will be, no matter how much he's gone down hill since then. But if those two books were STICKY FINGERS and EXILE ON MAIN STREET, PERFIDIA isn't even GOAT'S HEAD SOUP. I don't even know where to begin with this review. Hundreds upon hundreds of things that just didn't ring true, weirdly clueless dialogue, insanely implausible plot points, chara [...]

    20. I have read James Ellroy's novels pretty much ever since he began writing them, and they are all very, very good. And some are stunningly good reads, and Perfidia is just such a novel. In all fairness, I think just a bit of my bias for this determination is associated with the fact that I have encountered most of the characters in this novel in his previous novels. Having said that though, this novel 'carries its own freight,' and is a stand-alone plot in its own right. It does provide a ton of [...]

    21. During the late 80's and early 90's, James Ellroy wrote an acclaimed series of crime novels known as the L.A. Quartet before moving on to essentially re-write American history with his Underworld USA trilogy. Now he is back in Los Angeles, setting a horrible homicide against the backdrop of the Pearl Harbor attack and the beginning of World War II. This book follows the actions of three police officers and one young woman who is drawn into their world. The cops are at opposite ends: two lapsed C [...]

    22. There are things about that book that I loved and there are other things about it that irked the crap out of me. That's the kind of novel PERFIDIA is, it's both the most ambitious and oddly pertinent novel that James Ellroy's ever written, but it's also its most self-indulgent. Too many characters, too many coming back (it's like a reunion novel, really) and the Hollywood angle turns into a boring, name-dropping session of perverts anonymous quite fast,BUTBecause there's a BUT. I loved PERFIDIA [...]

    23. Muy buena novela en la que Ellroy hace gala de su buen hacer y mejor construir escenarios y personajesMás aquí

    24. Τα λέει όλα για την εποχή μας μιλώντας για μιαν άλλη εποχή (1941). Καταιγιστικό γράψιμο, αποστασιοποιημένος μετακυνισμός, ακρίβεια, ιστορική γνώση. Ο Ellroy ήρθε για να μείνει. Και έμεινε.

    25. Actual rating: 2.5 stars.I have a hard time getting into Ellroy novels. His writing reads like a string of staccato gossip rag headlines: brusque, abbreviated, slangy, Granted the slang is period-correct, it comes across as contrived and phony. No one talks like that; I'll go out on a limb and say that no cop, in any historical era, ever uttered the word "jejune."So it's always a rough start. Then, three or four chapters in, Ellroy's stories take off and I forget to be irritated with the stilted [...]

    26. To be published by Alfred A.Knopf in September 2014. This review is based on a partially unedited manuscript.Perfidia by Alberto Dominguez (English lyrics by Milton Leeds)"With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melodyWhile the gods of love look down and laugh At what romantic fools we mortals be""Perfidia" is a popular song from the 40s and its lyrics about faithlessness in love fit this Ellroy yarn of the weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor to a sweaty T. The first in a projecte [...]

    27. Perfidia is a wild, beast of a book. I'm a huge fan of James Ellroy, especially his LA books. Ellroy works best when he's let loose on the scene of downtown LA, with the scumbags and the scarlet women. This book deals with a fascinating and not often discussed period of American history - the impact of Pearl Harbour in cities and the US continent. Ellroy contrasts the inherent racism of the time with the main character, Hideo Ashida, a forensics investigator whose increasing motivation is self-p [...]

    28. I didn't know James Ellroy when I started Perfidia; I thought I'd stumbled on an author that was not well known. I was eager to tell a couple of GoodReads friends who enjoy noir detective books about my discovery. Now all I can say is after you read Perfidia, you will see how flat all the other noir detective books are.This book happened to touch several of my personal interests / experiences, so I was interested on another level. It appears to me now that I've finished the book that James Ellro [...]

    29. I need to preface my comments on Perfidia by stressing I am a massive Ellroy fan. I have read all of his books – ALL of them – many more than once. I even liked The Cold Six Thousand and Blood’s A Rover, the two books that most divided readers. So, it is with a heavy heart that I say Perfidia is very disappointing. The long awaited prelude to Ellroy’s LA Quintet, Perfidia takes place in Los Angeles over 23 days in December 1941, a period in which American went from being at piece to the [...]

    30. This is the first of another LA quartet, which contains some of the characters that will figure in great works such as LA Confidential and The Big Nowhere (murderous cop Dudley Smith in particular). The action all takes place just before and just after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and features fifth columnists, local Nazis, psycho cops and, to top it off, Bette Davis being Herself (and doing so with the Dudster, fgs). As usual with Ellroy, the plot is almost totally incomprehensible but c [...]
