Los Angeles, 1948: Easy Rawlins is a black war veteran just fired from his job at a defense plant. Easy is drinking in a friend's bar, wondering how he'll meet his mortgage, when a white man in a linen suit walks in, offering good money if Easy will simply locate Miss Daphne Money, a blonde beauty known to frequent black jazz clubs....
|I wanted to read Mr. Mosley's new book so I thought I would read his 1st. This book was great . Set in 1948 after the war and the different places he talks about I can see old black and white photos in my mind. Some of those places, towns I actually saw photos of. This is a book written like maybe a Raymond Chandler style, just a little. But more grit to it, the characters seem real. You can see each one at the place in the story and maybe have come across someone like that. A very good book. I hope the other books are good also
