Author(s): Walter Mosley
Set in the Patty Hearst era of radical black nationalism, a black ex-boxer, self-named Uhuru Nolica, the leader of a revolutionary cell called Scorched Earth, has kidnapped Rosemary Goldsmith, daughter of a weapons manufacturer. If the demands of Scorched Earth aren't met - money, weapons and an apology - 'Rose Gold' will die, horribly and publicly. So the FBI and the LAPD turn to Easy Rawlins, the one man who can cross the necessary borders to resolve this dangerous standoff. ROSE GOLD takes us back to the streets of sprawling, post-war Los Angeles and, this time, to the dark precincts of violent radicalism.
