It has been about 10 years since I read an Easy Rawlins novel. Mosley is a fine stylist and the story is absorbing. Unfortunately, the final resolution seems improbable.

I love walter mosley's work but was so disapointed n BBBB. The characters were flat and didn't lend themselves to getting the reader interested in their plight. I couldn't have cared if Brawley was ever found or why he was missing because Mosely didn't really give me a reason to care. I struggled through this book and was glad to turn the last page. Suggession: Don't write anymore Easy Rawlin's Mysteries if Mouse ain't in 'em.

Truely, disappointed with the ending! Mr. Mosley seemed rushed to finish the book. Many of the characters seemed to be under developed. This was my first read by Walter Mosley and I truly was expecting more.

Like everyone else, I missed Mouse just as much as Easy did in this novel. I was so excited to read it when I purchased it. The only thing that kept my attention was the hope that something would happen. Hardly any action and I was not emotionally invested in the characters like in his "Black Betty". I was really disappointed in the book. Its a page turner if you mean you turn the page waiting in eager anticipation for some action to occur but it never happens this time around.

I have so missed Mr. Rawlins -- he is so smooth and moves through his world with such ease. The plot was not one of Mosely's best but it has always been his characters that I so love that I just couldn't put this book down.

A great story but I really wished that Mouse was still alive. And the narrator..borrrring. I had gotten used to Paul Winfield's voice in the character.

In 1964 Compton, California, former fixer Easy Rawlins struggles with the death of his pal Mouse. Though he knows Mouse lived a dangerous life, Easy blames himself for his buddy being fatally shot, but he wonders if the medicos were wrong and his old Houston friend somehow survived, as there was no closure. In spite of his deep feelings of guilt, with two youngsters to nurture and a girlfriend to love, Easy goes straight.

Another Houston friend John asks Easy for a favor. His live in girl friend Alva Torres worries about her twenty-three year old son (from a previous marriage) hanging with the Urban Revolutionary Party. She wants Easy to find and talk to Brawly before he gets in too deep with these radicals. Unable to say no, Easy begins a search with Mouse in his subconscious guiding him through the urban jungle where even the law is an enemy to a black man.

The return of Easy, cleverly accompanied by Mouse at least in the hero¿s mind, is time for rejoicing for those who enjoy an entertaining yet insightful ¿professional¿ amateur sleuth historical mysteries. Easy remains an interesting character struggling with his loss and the need to take care of his two charges while helping a friend within a strong entry that shines a light on Los Angeles during the Civil Rights era. New readers will want to obtain Easy¿s previous appearances (DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS and A LITTLE YELLOW DOG) as Walter Mosley shows why he is one of the best.
