    1. “I paid a dear and savage price to live History.”And that’s the message of James Ellroy's bloody and brilliant Underworld USA trilogy (American Tabloid, The Cold Six Thousand and Blood’s A Rover) summed up in one sentence. Here at the end, it’s all about remorse, radicals, revolution, rebellion, revenge and redemption. (To borrow some Ellroy-style alliteration.)The book begins with a brief flashback to an armored car heist in 1964 that might have been planned by The Joker considering t [...]

    3. "You will read with some reluctance and capitulate in the end. The following pages will force you to succumb. I am going to tell you everything.” ― James Ellroy, Blood's a RoverThis is how the 60s ends, this is how the 60s ends, not with a bang, but a peeper. James Ellroy's Underworld trilogy was fantastic, but this was my least favorite of the three books. Looking back, I think they all were amazing, but this one just dragged a bit too far and wasn't as tight or stylized as his other two. B [...]

    4. ⭐️⭐️1/2Ellroy seems like he's running out of steam here. Story-wise and stylistically, this novel fits right in as the final book in the Underworld USA trilogy, where he documents his own version of the history of this country's turbulent '60's, with this book pulling us from the MLK and Bobbie Kennedy assassinations and into the early 70's with the Nixon years and the Black Power movement. But it's a far cry from the quality of his masterpiece American Tabloid, and surprisingly, I even [...]

    5. I just finished reading the latest James Ellroy book, "Blood's A Rover." It's a weighty slog to get through the novel at nearly 650 pages. I used to be a big James Ellroy fan. Now I feel Ellroy is very much past his prime as a relevant writer. I finished the book because I wanted to see what happened--I read both (the good) "American Tabloid" and (the terrible) "The Cold Six Thousand" that preceded this (hopefully last) entry in the trilogy--to the characters involved. Ellroy's mostly two-dimens [...]

    6. Ellroy closes out the Underworld USA Trilogy in style with a book that sees its characters moving from authority to revolution and from history's secrets to its margins.(As always, I'll assume you've read the preceding books.)Blood's a Rover continues the story of Wayne Tedrow, Jr who, fresh from participating in the MLK assassination and orchestrating his father's murder, is struggling with guilt, burnout, and his own past--especially how it's reflected back at him by everyone he meets. He's tr [...]

    7. Ellroy does redemption. It's not pleasant. There's a mantra that runs throughout the book: "Nobody dies." But this is Ellroy. So you can guess how well that works out.In some ways, this review is pointless, at least as a guide to any potential reader. Let's face it: if you've read American Tabloid and The Cold Six Thousand, you already know whether you are going to read this one or not. If you haven't read either of those, then you owe it to yourself to give American Tabloid a shot, or maybe sta [...]

    8. There might be some spoilers. I will make sure that they pop up later in the review. Don't hit more if you don't want to see them. The hump sucked up fear and hate wholesale. He was a stone shit magnet.After 1600 plus pages in the past three weeks, slumming in the netherworld of Ellroy's vision of American history my brain has fried itself on staccato prose, excessive violence and a belief that we are all rotten to the core. I feel complicit. I want a sap. A few throw-down pieces. I want to walk [...]

    9. The final book in James Ellroy's Underworld U.S.A. trilogy, "Blood's A Rover", is an exciting, provocative examination of crooked cops and the conspiracies that have shaped this country. Ellroy is probably one of my favorite writers ever, but I can't seem to read him one after another. I need long breaks between his books, they are so intense and disturbing. They are, however, a joy to read, as his language is a hodge-podge of cop-slang, pulp, and stream-of-consciousness. His characters are fasc [...]

    11. Fairly disappointing Ellroy. Still an exhilirating ride, but the pay-off was very unsatisfying. This is the conclusion to his American Tabloid trilogy. The first part was based around the assassination of JFK, and the second around those of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Ellroy, justifiably, decided not to cover the Watergate scandal in the third volume, but that left no comparable historic events to anchor this book, making it feel a far less significant work. This sadly drags down the t [...]

    12. Ellroy, you magnificent bastard! The final piece of the Underground U.S.A. trilogy is also the largest, longest, most convoluted, bloodiest, most intricate, fast-paced, and conspiratorial. Wayne Tedrow and Dwight Holly are back as main players, as are "Gay" Edgar Hoover, Howard "Dracula" Hughes in his decadent decline, Richard Nixon in his ascent to power, assorted Mob figures, American celebrities major and minor, sundry Communist revolutionaries, banana republic dictators, Haitian voodoo kings [...]

    13. This series really does fall victim to the law of diminished returns. I’ve already noted how ‘The Cold Six Thousand’ is not as good as ‘American Tabloid’, but ‘Blood’s A Rover’ is a considerable dip from all that went before.It was never going to be easy. ‘American Tabloid’ focused on the assassination of JFK, while ‘The Cold Six Thousand’ built up to the deaths of RFK and Martin Luther King. And although the years after that were tumultuous and eventful ones in America [...]

    14. So I've finished Blood's A Rover and I am happy to say that my initial enthusiasm carried throughout the entire read. I was so sad to see it finish, which is rare for a crime novel. While I tend to think the best crime novels are the equal of the best litfic, there are those that disagree. Genre snobs should consider the book a literary work and note that while its story line is like that of a thriller, the depth of character, the singular use of language and syntax and the emotional depth of th [...]

    15. Ellroy, James. BLOOD’S A ROVER. (2009). **. I’m a big fan of Ellroy, or at least I used to be. This novel, the third in his latest trilogy began with “American Tabloid,” and was followed by “The Cold Six Thousand.” It is a relatively stand-alone book, though some of the characters from the previous two show up again. It is written in his familiar – of late – staccato form, much like an old Walter Winchell broadcast. In fact, reading the book is like sitting through a six-hour Win [...]

    16. This trilogy seriously goes downhill after the excellent "American Tabloid." Not only does the writing style become increasingly more inscrutable (especially in the second book, "The Cold Six Thousand") but the characters become less well-defined and difficult to care about, and the historical stakes they're dealing with get far lower. Whereas the first book deals largely with the JFK assassination and the lead-up to it (feeding into conspiracy theories and making the reader really think about w [...]

    17. [image error]James Ellroy's literary Underworld USA Trilogy is worthy of reading, especially the first book, 'American Tabloid'. However, the next two novels I did not admire as much. 'Blood's a Rover' is the last one and I was glad of that. In my opinion, the taut-tough-terse construction which makes 'American Tabloid' a classic of American literature is missing from the next two books, taking the sense of very interesting fraught and anxious criminal depravity away with its disappearance. Inst [...]

    18. I am reading the advance copy. I have devoured all of Ellroy's work, have heard him read and love the manic rhythm of his language. I totally believe when Ellroy is at his best, his work transcends genre, and he is writing Great American Novels. Blood's a Rover concludes the trilogy that began with American Tabloid, one of his best works and an amazing alternate history of America. I have been waiting for the final installment for a decade. Two hundred pages in, Rover does not disappoint. But I [...]

    19. This is a deeply weird voodoo-infused book that crowns the majestically bonkers USA Underworld Trilogy with gentleness and poetic trippiness. How often does a novel fit that description?Out of all of Ellroy's good novels (so from Dahlia on) this is Ellroy's most flawed one. It's simultaneously very fresh and inspired and a completely indulgent retread of things he did better before. It's narrative ambition is off-the-wall-crazy, cramming in not three but seven (!) different point-of-views this t [...]

    20. Dwight Holly and Wayne Tedrow Jnr are back from The Cold Six Thousand, joined here by wannabe spot-tailer and obsessional "peeper" Donald Crutchfield. They commit the most atrocious acts, committed to a cause, then conflicted, then committed to a different cause as they circle around each other and a handful of similarly obsessional supporting cast members, all against the backdrop of post-Kennedy, Vietnam era America. All the characters, regardless of whether they are cops or not, bandy about s [...]

    21. La fine dell'innocenzaCon il romanzo “Il sangue è randagio” James Ellroy mette la tessera finale sull’inquietante mosaico che ha composto partendo da “American Tabloid” e con il successivo “Sei pezzi da mille”. Mentre nel primo atto della trilogia Ellroy racconta del momento della perdita dell’innocenza dell’America, ovvero l’assassinio di J.F. Kennedy e in “Sei pezzi da mille” mette in scena gli omicidi di Robert Kennedy e di Martin Luther King, nel suo ultimo lavoro lo [...]

    22. The latest from James Ellroy finds his characters not influencing national events like they did in American Tabloid or being caught up in them like they were in The Cold Six Thousand. Instead, they’re trying to do what feels right to them while navigating their way through the war between black militants and the FBI, mobbed up casinos in the Caribbean and a fictional armored car heist.The big twist this book takes away from other Ellroy novels is how empowered women are throughout the whole st [...]

    23. James Ellroy does one style and you know what you are going to get from the first page, sleazy characters, noble psychopaths, everybody is deeply deeply damaged and deeply deeply messed up. Oh and of course everything is driven by every paranoids favourite fantasies.Sometimes when reading this book I felt that the author needed to give himself and us a bit of break. Maybe throw in a happy puppy or an accountant who does not work for the mob, likes his wife and never killed his dad with his bare [...]

    24. Wow. Seriously. Wow.If you've got 26 hours to blow, put on your seatbelt and grab this audiobook. It got me from Portland to Los Angeles and back, driving.If I had read the book, I would have probably given it four stars. The structure and story feels familiar, some of the same schtick as his previous two books, with slightly less of the depth of character. But Craig Wasson's read is masterful. It really bolsters the argument of the Audiobook as its own medium.Haitian voodoo, J. Edgar Hoover, bl [...]

    28. THE COLD SIX THOUSAND is an important and innovative historical novel; BLOOD'S A ROVER is a good thriller that continues the story from the previous volume of some of the characters' lives. The tone is ugly; the story is ugly; even the love is ugly. The characters are mainly violent monsters and freaks who fit the bill for the lurid stuff that thriller/noir fans crave. The Cold Six Thousand is important because it tells the secret history of three major American historical events: the JFK, RFK, [...]

    30. Well, JFK, MLK and RFK were all dead by the time this book began, so I was wondering where it would go. Who else could be offed? Thankfully, foreign casino insurgency and a gem heist gone to shit allow Ellroy the chance to work some of his favourite characters (requisite dirty cops, Sal Mineo and Sonny Liston, mysterious double agents, the Mob) into something which isn't quite as weighed down by history as the preceding books in the trilogy. The gem heist - and where the gems lead - provides a n [...]
