Set in the tumultuous Summer of 1968, L.A. author James Ellroy's latest political noir delves deep into a tangled tale of corruption and retribution amidst a backdrop of reconstructed history—Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy have been assassinated; black militants are warring in southside L.A.; the Feds are mounting racist counterattacks. Cast with epic characters of fiction and history, "Blood’s a Rover" is Ellroy’s attempt to grapple with recent history and spin it into a fantastical war of ideals.
