Easy Rawlins is back - and this time it's personal . . .
When four armed policemen turn up at Easy Rawlins's door, he thinks he's in trouble. He is.
They want him to find Rosemary Goldsmith, the daughter of a millionaire arms dealer. And Easy can't afford to say no.
The LAPD think she's with Bob Mantle, a black boxer turned radical. Has she been kidnapped? Is she colluding? When Easy is almost gunned down on his first day on the case, he realises he'll need more than wits to find Rose Gold.
One of America's most gifted writers of any genre...Mosley's mastery of authentic dialogue is matchless - THE TIMES
There are few writers working within the crime genre who recreate time and place with Mosley's effortless exactness, even fewer who can replicate his masterfully sustained sense of danger - SUNDAY TIMES
Three qualities make this book well worth reading. Easy provides a black slant on a white man's world, all the more telling because it's so casually done. Second, Mosley has an acute sense of historical context - a real bonus in a series spanning several decades. Best of all, perhaps, as this novel shows, he's a natural storyteller. Easy reading, in more ways than one. - SPECTATOR on LITTLE GREEN
Rawlins's comeback assignment, courtesy of his sidekick Mouse, is a pretty standard search for a missing young man. But in this series the plots are merely pretexts for collisions between the sleuth and the rich, diverse array of Angelenos, here, rewardingly, including hippies. From the outset, trademark Chandleresque phrases and swift character sketches unmistakably indicate that Mosley's mojo has been retrieved. - SUNDAY TIMES on LITTLE GREEN
