The fifth Easy Rawlins novel by Walter Mosley - 'simply the best crime writer around today' Guardian
November 1963: Easy's settled into a steady gig as a school custodian. It's a quiet, simple existence - but a few moments of ecstasy with a sexy teacher will change all that. When the lady vanishes, Easy's stuck with a couple of corpses, the cops on his back, and a little yellow dog who's nobody's best friend. With his not-so-simple past snapping at his heels, and with enemies old and new looking to get even, Easy must kiss his careful little life good-bye - and step closer to the edge . . .
Walter Mosley's Easy Rawlins novels are a series of perfectly balanced concoctions of lust, violence, politics and race . . . Mosley hits his typically inspired stride, once again demonstrating how, in American life, private drama and public tragedy often feed off one another - Sunday Times
A thriller with everything and more: great writing with depth and feeling, twisting plot, brilliant dialogue and wonderful characters - Tribune
Mosley's combination of superior plotting, precise dialogue and the ability to convey the atmosphere of the times are as effective as in the previous four Easy Rawlins novels - The Times
When I finished reading A Little Yellow Dog, I went out and got all four of Walter Mosley's previous Easy Rawlins novels and read them straight through . . . To write five novels about a character as interesting and complex as Easy and never to flag, never to miss a beat, is pretty amazing - Guardian
