The sixth Easy Rawlins novel by Walter Mosley - 'simply the best crime writer around today' Guardian
In the beginning . . . there was Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins and Raymond "Mouse" Alexander - two young men setting out in life, hitting the road in a "borrowed" '36 Ford headed for Pariah, Texas. The volatile Mouse wants to retrieve money from his stepfather so he can marry his EttaMae. But on their steamy bayou excursion, Mouse will choose murder as a way out, while Easy's past liaison with EttaMae floats precariously in his memory. Easy and Mouse are coming of age - and everything they ever knew about friendship and about themselves is coming apart at the seams . . .

A chilling tale of sex, voodoo and murder - Sunday Times
The swamps and small towns of black Texas are rendered with an almost tactile grace, while the people who inhabit them are brought fully to life. Repressed by white culture, Mosley's characters are left to assert their humanity through strenuous sex, raucous drinking, sudden violence and fervent spirituality - Sunday Times
Magic emerges from Mosley's writing - and it goes straight to the reader's heart - Guardian
