This is my first Walter Mosley book and I found it a tad boring and tiring. Its dated of course and its interesting reading about that time in the US. The story flows alright, just found it hard to keep my interest.

Walter Mosley's exciting portrayal of L.A. in the 40s,50s is dead on! He names streets naborhoods and landmarks as if the reader was right there.

Walter Mosley delivers a unique perspective on the 50's & 60's. Easy Rawlins is a complex character, unapologetic for the flaws and foibles of his friends, yet getting along in the world that's tilted against him, the entire series is an education on being Black in America the way it was.

Even though I am not a true fan of the author due to previous reads outside of Easy Rawlings, I fell head over heels for him on this one. The suspense was great and it was easy to relate to the trials and lifestyle of the main character due to view the author gives you. I enjoyed it.

Reading Mosely's Easy Rawlins mysteries are more than a delight. This one elaborates the turbulent but changing times of the 1960's and its characters in LA and San Fran. Easy has grown to be an efficient sleuth, with much deserved respect from friends and foes. The black street experience is persuasive and prevalent with each turning page. I can't wait for the next one. What color(s) will Mosely think of next to blend into an intriguing title!

Talk about great character motivation to cross the line that is drawn between order and law. If your little girl had a disease and you needed money, what would you do? Hold ups are the nephews of criminal activities such as bank robbing, drug dealing and the new phenomenon of human sex trafficking. Mosley is one of the grandfathers of ethnic crime/detective drama. The Michael Connelly for the African-American crime drama. I read name brand authors and some of the literary upstarts. Like 50 Cent's new book. Like After Hours. Like a rugged little independent book that I stumbled across, called Masks of the Darkest American Game by Reginald Carter. There's Ernest Gaines', A Lesson Before Dying don't forget upstart Nathan McCall's Makes Me Wanna Holler and, of course, the Autobiograph of Malcolm X. A Mosely book was given to me by my Pop sometime ago, and I've been a fan eversince.

I can't put my finger on exactly why I didn't care for this book -- maybe unaccustomed to the very odd names of the characters for one. I do like the style of easy writing - but this just isn't my cup of tea.

Walter Mosley writes so well that I almost believe Easy Rawlins is a real person. He must be someone Walter Mosley knows or knew. The story is exciting, quick, funny, and sad. I'm always ready for the next Easy Rawlins Mystery. The characters are so deep and colorful I find myself giving them faces to go along with their voices in the story. Cinnamon Kiss is a keeper and a winner. I won't be loaning this one out.

In 1968 Los Angeles with the Watts riot over but fresh in everyone¿s minds Easy Rawlins needs money to take his beloved daughter Feather to the specialized Bonatelle Clinic in Switzerland the cost is $35,000. At the Cox Bar, his pal Mouse suggests they hold up an armored vehicle, but after almost running over a mother with babies, Easy decides that is to dangerous of an approach to gaining the money especially since he is over the edge and fears everything will go wrong and then his daughter will have nobody................. Instead he obtains work from a white friend, private investigator Saul Lynx who gets him a job in San Francisco with mysterious sleuth Robert E. Lee to locate two missing persons for $10K. Though expecting treachery as no one outside of entertainment pays a black man with cash, Easy searches for wealthy attorney Axel Bowers and his assistant lover, Cinnamon Cargill, who have vanished. ..................... The easy Rawlins late 1960s tales are some of the best historical suspense thrillers on the market over the past few years. CINNAMON KISS is a terrific tale that once again showcases the lot of a black man in 1968 California while providing a deep light on the period. Easy is fabulous struggling to send his beloved child to Europe for treatment that is not available in L.A. If you have not read his adventures you are missing a treat because his escapades are enlightening and entertaining.............. Harriet Klausner
