Blood's a Rover by James Ellroy

Blood's a rover

Widely considered to be one of America's best crime fiction writers, James Elroy takes readers on a bloody journey through 1960s America with Blood's a Rover, set at a time when Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were assassinated.

Five characters make up the plot, including Joan Rosen Klein, who is on a mission to avenge the deaths of her loved ones, chemist and ex-policeman Wayne Tedrow and right-wing bigot Dwight Holly.

Completing the 'Underworld USA' trilogy, the final novel is a thrilling story of corruption and retribution, told through political crimes of the era.
