A Red Death (Easy Rawlins #2)It's 1953, a time when Red-baiting was official policy, and racial tensions boiled. Easy Rawlins is in deep trouble. A corrupt, racist IRS agent is breathing down his neck about some unpaid taxes. His only out: cut a deal with the FBI to infiltrate the First African Baptist Church and spy on a former World War II resistance fighter suspected of stealing some top secret government plans.

But the IRS isn't Easy's only problem. His life becomes even more complicated and dangerous when his old flame Etta Mae Harris shows up with her murderous husband, Easy's best friend, Raymond "Mouse" Alexander, hard on her heels. And then killings begin, and Easy finds himself playing the role of betrayed and betrayer - and the prime suspect.


This is the second book by Mr. Mosley, with the Easy Rawlins character. Many of the characters from the first book are here in this story plus a few new ones. I still enjoy his writing and the areas that he talks about. Such as Foothill Blvd, when I was a kid you could take from L.A. to San Bernardino. Now you can't they have built homes and other things that make the road change directions. Any way it is nice to remember some of the things how they used to be. The story is good and there are a few twists and turns that I did not see coming. This is a good story that I read in one day. I really enjoyed the book don't want to give the story away. Now on to the next one.
