Издательство: Vintage Crime/Black Lizard. Rosemary Goldsmith, the daughter of a weapons manufacturer, has been kidnapped by a black revolutionary cell called Scorched Earth. So the authorities turn to Easy Rawlins, the one man who can cross the necessary lines to resolve this dangerous standoff and find Rose Gold before it’s too late. In the sixties era of black nationalism, political abductions, and epidemic police corruption, Easy’s investigation will pull him-unremittingly and inevitably-into the darkest underbelly of Los Angeles.

Ross Macdonald is the main pseudonym that was used by the American-Canadian writer of crime fiction Kenneth Millar (/ˈmɪlər/; December 13, 1915 – July 11, 1983). He is best known for his series of hardboiled novels set in Southern California and featuring private detective Lew Archer. Brought up in the province of Ontario, Canada, Macdonald eventually settled in the state of California, where he died in 1983.

Black Money (Vintage Crime Black Lizard). The Underground Man (Lew Archer 16). Ross Macdonald. Категория: Юридические науки, Криминология, криминалистика. New York.

As a mysterious fire rages through the hills above a privileged town in Southern California, Archer tracks a missing child who may be the pawn in a marital struggle or the victim of a bizarre kidnapping.  What he uncovers amid the ashes is murder—and a trail of motives as combustible as gasoline.  The Underground Man is a detective novel of merciless suspense and tragic depth, with an unfaltering insight into the moral ambiguities at the heart of California's version of the American dream.If any writer can be said to have inherited the mantle of Dashiell Hammet and Raymond Chandler, it was Ross Macdonald.  Between the late 1940s and his death in 1983, he gave the American crime novel a psychological depth and moral complexity that his predecessors had only hinted at.  And in the character of Lew Archer, Macdonald redefined the private eye as a roving conscience who walks the treacherous frontier between criminal guilt and human sin.

Comments:

CrazyDemon
The book was suspenseful. I wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. There are quite a few characters so you don’t want read a chapter and come back to the book a week later. And it’s not just one murder, it’s three. Very worthwhile, I will read more by this author.
Teonyo
This novel offers standard Macdonald fare: dark histories, family secrets, murders, noir, and all the hard-boiled similes and metaphors one could want. Definitely worth reading by fans of the genre.
JoJogar
This vintage book reads as well or better than current mysteries.
It is well plotted and has enough turns and twists to satisfy any
Mystery reader.
Cordanius
The best detective writer ever, except for Raymond Chandler perhaps. In fact, I would rate him a great writer, period.
Shazel
Good pacing, atmospheric, and Macdonald kept me guessing until the last five pages. One of my favorite Lew Archer mysteries.
Syleazahad
A page turner and hard to put down. Can easily be read in one day.

Great writer. Great book.
Ross MacDonald at his best. An intense story with excellent, believable, characters. I really enjoyed the backdrop of the wild fire.
