    1. This was the first Easy Rawlins novel to come close to being as good as the first, Devil In A Blue Dress The books in between have all been decent, but until this one, none have been able to match the urgency and freshness of the first novel In Little Scarlet, Easy is a changed man after witnessing the violence and destruction during the 1965 race riots in Watts, and he searches for the murderer of a black woman in the riot s aftermath Using the riots as a setting really upped the ante from the [...]

    8. Walter Mosley delivers crime fiction set during a turning point in America s racial history His protagonist, Easy Rawlins, is a man who, often than not, would like to be left alone he just keeps getting caught up murders that require his special expertise in detection The great pleasure of reading Mosley is the classic, sharp paced action mixed with commentary on the problems of being African American in a racist society.



    9.

    10. edited 12 30 13The LA riots have erupted, and the state of mind of Easy Rawlins, official janitor and unofficial detective, reflects the chaos around him While saddened by the rage and violence, he understands it deeply, seeing that to even make the offenders aware of the gulf between white and black, something has to break In the midst of his own inner turmoil, the LA police call him in to investigate a potentially racially sensitive case Easy Rawlins has a unique perspective and voice He is ea [...]


    11. An Easy Rawlins murder mystery set during the race riots in Watts in the 60 s Here s the thing about Walter Mosley his novels are great and I never care who s the killer The mystery genre is used by Mosley as a vehicle to explore these characters, whom he obviously loves, during unique times in history A murder is fitting with the theme of control that he so often explores a murderer takes control of another s life, the cops take control of the destiny of the blacks in LA until they stand up and [...]


    12. A cat jumped into my lap and started pressing her nose against my hand I scratched behind her ears absently I imagined a lonely black boy living out in a white world where even his mother treated him like dirt You like cats, Mr Rawlins Dottie asked me Better than most people, I replied Hallelujah to that, she said.Easy is on the trail of a tortured, demented killer of black women as L.A still smolders in the wake of the 65 Watts Riots in the 9th installment of the Easy Rawlins mystery series, Li [...]


    13. Very good, atmospheric recreation of the Los Angeles scene at the time of the Watts riots of 1965, from the multiple perspectives of the black, white, and police communities Also a compelling mystery with some memorable charactersd tied together with the narrative guidance of the compelling Easy Rawlins The audiobook is masterfully read with much thought and nuance put into each character voice by actor Michael Boatman This unabridged version kept my spouse and me enthralled for the entire appro [...]


    14. There are books that are written to convey plot as clearly as possible and keep the reader turning pages eagerly This is one of them, but it s also a book that is freighted with bleak, clear eyed insight The prose is a joy to read fleet footed, yet meticulous, never heavy handed, but far from empty headed If everything else by Mosley is half as good, I look forward to reading of his work.


    15. I completed this audiobook while stuck in a layover in LAX It s rare I can read a book in the city it s based in The story revolves around a murdered woman during the Watts riots in 1965 I ve noticed in the recent Mosley books that Easy seems to be getting quite preachy In this one he is as well, but it makes sense during the riots This didn t seem as over the top compared to other recent books in this series Memorable for the characters and the environment.






    16. Easy Rawlins goes looking for a serial killer in the middle of the 1965 Watts riot black women are dying and nobody seems to care he takes on a temporary partner, who is white, to solve the case He was a cop by trade and I was a criminal by color But there we were and he s thinking about the experience of blacks in a white world, the harsh reality of every chance encounter, identity and stereotypes shifting just a little but not enough at a moment when the ground is suddenly changing beneath the [...]


    17. I liked the story and plot of this book The author explains much about Black prejudice towards whites in easy language I d like to read about Easy Ezechial Rawlins Little Scarlet was a black women killed in and around the time of the Watts riots in LA in 1965 Police asked Rawlins to help them because he was black and could search things in the Watts area easier than cops The author gives great incite into Rawlins life and black experience with just a few words He solves the crime and the reason [...]


    18. This was my first Mosley I haven t even seen the Rawlins novel that got adapted into a major motion picture starring Denzel Washington But I am inspired to read of them and to see that movie now Little Scarlet had a great mix of crime noir one liners, action and history I would put this in front of a young reader who is engaged with the Black Lives Matter movement and could use some help connecting the dots to the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.


    19. One can only appreciate the expansion of Easy s influence if you are familiar with his turbulent history Nevertheless, Easy once again enters unforeseen adventures which in doing favors on the side of work, he gains friends and influence by befriending a white man in the police force For a black man in the 1960 s, that s like striking gold Easy Rawlins is as cool as the other side of the pillow.


    20. Just keeps getting betterThis provides a great backstory to how Easy Rawlins got his in with 2 hard men on the LAPD Also how he came to be a Black Man in LA to have a PI s licenseI have been reading Walter Mosley for a great many years 20 , and really don t remember if it ever came up before His work is something you can read several times and like all great authors, each time you gain a better understanding of the characters.



    21. I started reading this book not expecting much but I can say that I enjoyed this book so much then what I expected I especially liked the friendship Easy and Suggs create.




    22. I am listening to this in my car It has captured my interest in a way that most mysteries do not I will definitely read from this author Our hero is an unlicensed, black private detective in Los Angeles during the race riots of the 60 s He gives great insight into the daily city life of black men and why they had so much suppressed rage And, it is a murder mystery involving a young female victim and her elderly aunt.
