Easy Rawlins has a steady job as supervisor of maintenance at Sojourner Truth Junior High School in LA. His adopted kids are doing well, and he'd like to keep living his ordinary life. Unfortunately, an unguarded moment with a needy woman promises to dump him right back into the streets, where he needs all his smarts to survive. I love Mosley's writing, as always, but there are a few too many peripheral characters to keep track of here, and the plot takes a little too long to develop. Still, good stuff to escape into; always fun to watch Easy work. Easy may have found a good woman this time, but he may also have lost his best friend Mouse, for which he will blame himself. But Mosley leaves us hanging in suspense on both those points at the end of the book.

Compelling story, compelling characters -- Mr. Mosley took me back to a different place and time. Easy's relationship with his "kids" was heart-warming and made it "easy" to overlook his faults. Sad and poignant at times, it was a very good, satisfying read. ( )

The best of the Easy Rawlins books. This gives you the feel of living in LA as an African-American and gives you a context to understand why OJ was found not guilty. Hint: keep a list of characters as you read to keep them all straight. ( )
