Description of this Book
Walter Mosley's indelible detective Easy Rawlins is back, with a new detective agency and a new mystery to solve. Picking up where Rose Gold left off in L.A. in the late 1960s, Ezekiel Easy Rawlins finds his life in transition. He's ready to finally propose to his girlfriend, Bonnie Shay, and start a life together. And he's taken the money he got from the Rose Gold case and has, together with two partners, started a new detective agency. But, inevitably, a case gets in the way: Easy's friend Mouse introduces him to Rufus Tyler, a very old man everyone calls Charcoal Joe. Joe's friend's son, Seymour (young, bright, top of his class at Stanford), has been arrested and charged with the murder of a white man from Redondo Beach. Rufus tells Easy he will pay and pay well to see his nephew exonerated, but seeing as how Seymour was literally found standing over the man's dead body at his cabin home and the racially charged motives behind it, that might prove to be a tall order. Between his new company, a heart that should be broken but is not, a whole raft of new bad guys on his tail, and a bad odor that surrounds Charcoal Joe, Easy has his hands full, his horizons askew, and a life in shambles on the ground around his feet.
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Fasten your seat belts. It's time for another simmering tour of Los Angeles, this time in 1968, with Ezekiel Easy Rawlins serving once more as the unwilling guide. Read Mosley for his matchless ability to present mosaic worlds in which even the most minor characters arrive burning with their own unquenchable stories. Kirkus Reviews
