"More than one man's journey Mosley's Easy Rawlins series is a chronicle of the shifting landscape of race relations from the 1940s to the 1960s and is destined to become part of the American - and not just African--American - social conscience. Highly recommended." - Library Journal starred.

"Easy's tortuous progression from man-child to man may have reached its climax in this searing and moving novel." - Publishers Weekly starred.

Easy Rawlins L.A.'s most reluctant detective comes home one day to find Easter the daughter of his friend Christmas Black on his doorstep. He knows that this can only mean that ex-Marine Black is in big trouble - or dead.

While Easy is searching for a clue to Christmas Black's disappearance two suspicious MPs hire him to find his friend on behalf of the U.S. Army. Easy's investigation brings him to Faith Laneer a blonde woman with a very dark past. And as Easy begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together he realizes that Black's disappearance has its roots in Vietnam - and that Faith is likely to be the next victim.

I'm such a Walter Mosley fan! His characters are fabulous, whether you like them or not. He's is by far the best writer at character development. The book I am reading now (another author) just seems to drag on because the writer is trying too hard to develop characters, where Mosley makes it seem effortless.

After reading several of his books now, this one is what I'd call a typical Mosley mystery. Not predictable, but now that I'm used to his writing, it's not as gripping as the first few. I definitely enjoy his non-mystery genre of books more. His mysteries are thoroughly enjoyable and a great escape from everyday.

One final note: This was the first Easy Rawlins mystery I'd read, and it's the 10th one he wrote. I wish I'd read at least a few of the prior ones first. (You'll understand, when you read it!)
