Blood’s A Rover
Author: James Ellroy
Publisher: Knopf
Price: $35 (Hardcover)

From the heist that opens this entertaining novel, Blood’s A Rover takes readers on a thrilling ride through 1960s America. Completing James Ellroy’s Underworld USA Trilogy after American Tabloid and The Cold Six Thousand, this book follows three central protagonists tied to dark back-stories of characters like aviator Howard Hughes and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and groups like the mob and the CIA. Written in Ellroy’s highly stylized tone, paired with high action and littered with timely racial jabs, the book captures an equally outstanding and gritty portrait of a country undergoing change.
