Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After being approached by a shell-shocked Vietnam War veteran who claims to have gotten into a fight protecting a white woman from a black man, Easy embarks on an investigation that takes him from mountaintops to the desert, through South Central and into sex clubs and the homes of the fabulously wealthy, facing hippies, the mob, and old friends perhaps more dangerous than anyone else.

    It's been four years since Mosley's last Easy Rawlins novel (Charcoal Joe), whetting appetites for another installment in this long-running and much-loved series. It's 1969 this time—after beginning in the late 1940s, the series has taken residence amid the clamor of the late-sixties cultural revolution—and Rawlins, a WWII vet, is drawn into a case by a white Vietnam vet who believes he may have killed a Black man who appeared to be assaulting a white woman. When Rawlins returns to the scene, there is no sign of a struggle, and the apparent victim has vanished. Quickly, the case becomes about much more than helping a fellow vet. In America, Rawlins observes, everything is about either race or money, and so it is here, with a stolen $300,000 serving as the story's MacGuffin, and the ever-present hostility Rawlins encounters as a Black investigator interacting with white people (especially cops) offering every bit as much of a threat as the mobsters after the money. As always, Easy's finely calibrated understanding of and commentary on the social and racial climate around him gives the novel its defining texture and power.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A new Easy Rawlins novel is always big news in crime-fiction circles, and this fifteenth entry in the series does not disappoint.
