Editorial Reviews

"…The most quotable of all contemporary detectives stirs up enough trouble for scene after memorable scene." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Publisher's Summary

Rose Gold is two colors, one woman, and a big headache.
In this new mystery set in the Patty Hearst era of radical black nationalism and political abductions, a black ex-boxer self-named Uhuru Nolica, the leader of a revolutionary cell called Scorched Earth, has kidnapped Rosemary Goldsmith, the daughter of a weapons manufacturer, from her dorm at UC Santa Barbara. If they don't receive the money, weapons, and apology they demand, "Rose Gold" will die - horribly and publicly. So the FBI, the State Department, and the LAPD turn to Easy Rawlins, the one man who can cross the necessary borders to resolve this dangerous standoff. With twelve previous adventures since 1990, Easy Rawlins is one of the small handful of private eyes in contemporary crime fiction who can be called immortal. Rose Gold continues his ongoing and unique achievement in combining the mystery/PI genre form with a rich social history of postwar Los Angeles - and not just the black parts of that sprawling city.

Critic Reviews

"Set in L.A. during the height of the Vietnam War, Mosley's impressive 13th Easy Rawlins mystery (after 2013's Little Green) finds Roger Frisk, special assistant to the police chief, calling on Easy with a job... Easy's experiences and insights perfectly mirror the turbulent '60s." ( Publishers Weekly, starred)
"Mosley has few peers when it comes to crafting sentences, and he's woven some beauties into this swift-moving yet philosophical story that does more for illustrating an iconic period than hours of documentary film could. This Easy Rawlins novel harks back to the great early days of the series." ( Booklist, starred)

Good story weak ending.

I loved the story it had many twist and turns, kept me interested until the weak ending. But I'm a huge Walter Mosley fan!
