Sometimes it takes more than one book to tell the whole story.

Crime novelist James Ellroy has already peeled back the curtain on the secret history of Los Angeles during the post-war years in his original "L.A. Quartet" series, most famously in the novel "L.A. Confidential."

Now he's out the with the second installment of his "Second L.A. Quartet."

"This Storm" is about Los Angeles, it's police force and corruption, in the early days of World War II.

Ellroy, an award-winning and internationally best-selling author will be in San Diego speaking at Mysterious Galaxy books on Sunday.

He joins Midday Edition Wednesday to talk about his writing.
