By

Rating
It s 1968. Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King are dead. The Mob, Howard Hughes and J Edgar Hoover are in a struggle for America s soul, drawing into their murderous conspiracies the dammed and the soon-to-be damned. Wayne Tedrow Jr.- parricide, assassin, dope cooker, mouthpiece for all sides, loyal to none. His journey will take him away from the darkness and into an even greater darkness. Dwight Holly- Hoover s enforcer and hellish conspirator in terrible crimes. As Hoover s power wanes his destiny lurches towards Richard Nixon and self-annihilation Don Crutchfield- is a kid, a nobody, a wheelman and a private detective who stumbles upon an ungodly conspiracy from which he and the country may never recover. All three men are drawn to women on the opposite side of the political and moral spectrum; all are compromised and ripe for destruction. Only one of them will survive. The final part of James Ellroy s Underworld USA trilogy is set during the social and political upheaval of 1968-72. Blood s a Rover is an incandescent fusion of fact and fiction and is James Ellroy s greatest masterpiece.

Reviews

"[A] tour de force about the battle for America's soul ... is a monumental work of fiction, ... one of the most original and daring writers alive" * Independent on Sunday * "[A] stunning, breathless conclusion to the Underworld USA trilogy ... There is no equivalent in contemporary fiction" * Uncut * "[A] jaw-dropping stand-along work of uncompromising power and authenticity, and the trilogy as a whole is one of the landmarks of American fiction of the last 20 years" * The Herald * "The classiest act around. Read it and weep - for its utter darkness and yet its stunning sweep and grace" * Daily Mail *
