Summary

We are behind, and below, the scenes of JFK's presidential election, the Bay of Pigs, the assassination-in the underworld that connects Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, D.C.... 
 
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, the right murder, buys a moment of a man's loyalty... 
 
Where three renegade law-enforcement officers-a former L.A. 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.
