Political noir as only James Ellroy can write it. The incendiary standalone sequel to American Tabloid and The Cold Six Thousand - a massive tale of corruption and retribution, conspiracy and cover-up.

It is summer, 1968. The country is exploding. We are running point with three men: a Klan-raised, Yale-educated FBI agent infiltrating black-militant groups at J. Edgar Hoover's racist behest and obsessed with a leftist shadow figure named Joan Rosen Klein. An ex-cop and heroin runner paving the way for the mob's casinos in the Dominican Republic. A young L.A. 'wheelman' for divorce lawyers within tantalizing reach of the men who killed the Kennedys and Martin Luther King and took us to the threshold of Watergate. Their lives collide in pursuit of the 'Red Goddess Joan' - and they will all pay 'a dear and savage price to live History.'

Once again James Ellroy razes and reconstructs our recent past. Blood's A Rover is his largest and greatest work of fiction.
