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 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
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/private investigation genre with a rich social history
of postwar Los Angeles—and not just the black parts of that sprawling city. Download and start listening now!
