Mystery lovers may want to tune in to "Murder by the Book'' tonight at 10 on Court TV. James Ellroy is the first writer invited to talk about the true crime that inspired his writing. Of course, that story is well known. It was the murder of his mother when he was 10 years old. In "My Dark Places,'' he wrote about his failed efforts to solve her murder. More famous is "Black Dahlia,'' his novel based on another real-life unsolved murder.

Subsequent weeks will feature, among others, Michael Connelly, whose "Echo Park'' is selling briskly.
