    Easy Rawlins returns┬┐

    Easy Rawlins is back in the tenth book of this series. Walter Mosley entwines a multitude of threads to form an intricate tale. It is 1967, Los Angeles, Easy Rawlins is a certified private investigator. Easy regretted his decision to kick Bonnie Shay out of his home the year before, He still loved her and wanted her to come home but his pride prevented him from calling her now it is too late, she was planning on marrying someone else. However, he is not so torn up that he is not tempted by Tourmaline Goss or Faith Laneer. Christmas Black is a former Marine, a government trained killer. Christmas has disappeared after leaving his adopted, 8 year old, Vietnamese daughter at Easy¿s home he leaves no explanation. Easy suspects the missing man is dead or soon will be. The military is also searching for Black. In his Easy encounters drug dealers and murderers. Raymond ¿Mouse¿ Alexander is Easy¿s oldest friend and considered the area¿s most dangerous man. When Etta Mae begs Easy to find her husband, Easy cannot say no. The police suspect Mouse has murdered Pericles Tarr, the father of twelve. Easy¿s task is to find the man and prove him innocent. Blonde Faith grabs the reader¿s attention by beginning with Easy¿s search for Chevette, a 16 year old runaway. She was working the streets for Porky. Easy won my admiration with the way he interacted with the teen. The talented author interlaced the story of the two missing men and Easy¿s personal life to give the readers a complicated tale. The focus shifts repeatedly from one investigation to the other to thoughts of Bonnie. Blonde Faith is a page-turner, I eagerly read the whole night, unable to stop until I had finished the story. Easy is a complex character, growing and developing throughout this series. Fans of mystery and suspense will not want to miss Blonde Faith . Reviewed by Amelia Emerson for ReviewYourBook.com, 9/07

    Excellent Easy Rawlins historical mystery

    In post Watts riot Los Angeles, Easy Rawlins knows he must be very careful working as a private investigator as that is against the law for a black man. However, when he comes home he finds eight years old E.D. Black waiting for him. The Vietnamese child says her daddy Christmas dropped her off. Easy fears that his close friend is either in deep trouble or dead. --- Easy plans to find Christmas, but he meets black army Captain Miles and two MPs who also want to find Christmas. The Captain hires Easy on behalf of the military, but by their involvement the sleuth knows whatever is going on ties back to when Christmas served in Viet Nam. Easy follows clues that lead to BLONDE FAITH Laneer, who he believes is in the same trouble as Christmas is. He also cannot turn to friend insane Raymond 'Mouse' Alexander for help as the police have a bounty to kill him. Already upset with his beloved Bonnie Shay planning to marry someone else and feeling all alone and ancient as he nears fifty he doubts his sleuthing skills while struggling to find a way to save Christmas in order for the detective to obtain some redemption and self esteem. --- The latest Easy Rawlins historical mystery is an excellent tale that shows how complex a protagonist the hero is. He has major doubts that he can still do the job and feels guilty over his failed relationship with his soul mate. However, in spite of his anguish and angst, he still must do everything he can to help his buddy. Fans of the series already know how great these novels are whereas newcomers will scramble for the backlist as few if any authors tell the American black saga during the pre, early and late Civil Rights era better than Walter Mosley consistently does. --- Harriet Klausner

    Easy Moving on

    I thought I had read this one. I would have remembered the wrapping up of Easy's life. Putting things in order so to speak, and definitely his demise. Unless some how he survives, I've got to start on another of Mosley's characters (Leonid McGill is next). I've loved all Easy's friends and foes, and to be honest, I'm sorry to see him go. Nothing lasts forever. Thanks WM for a great ride.

    My suggestions would be to start with the first book Devil in a Blue Dress.

    Walter Mosley never fails.....

    Walter Mosley never fails to come through with his engaging characters and plot lines. I love the inner struggles of each character, new and old. Can't wait for the next book in the Fearless Jones series.

    EASY RAWLINS

    Mr. Mosley,
    Please, I'm begging you, you must write another Easy Rawlins book. You are the ONLY mystery/detective writer that I read. I've never been drawn to these types of books until I read yours! I don't have a substitue to get me through, so please, for ALL of your fans write just one more! We have to know what happened. BTW, if you only write one more, make it really really long!

    I Also Recommend:

    Blonde Faith provides faith in humanity, friendship, society, wrongs that can turn into rights even when cruelness stares bleakly into a person's heart.

    Walter Mosely never fails to deliver an "Easy Rawlins" character-based book that keeps you reading long into the night. The family of characters that spin around the seemingly hardcore Easy are as much loved and anticipated as Easy himself. The reader wonders who's next on Mouse's hit-list and what will the scared, but brillant, Jackson Blue get himself into. Of course we always wonder if Easy will find peace in life and love.

    Walter Mosely PLEASE, PLEASE write another Easy Rawlins book. Your faithful readers have to be sure...say it ain't so. And if it is what it is, let Mouse give us the news. We've all grown-up in mind and spirit with Easy. We can accept the verdict. PLEASE write and let us know for certain.
