"When Cordell Carmel catches his longtime girlfriend with another man, the act that he witnesses seems to dissolve all the boundaries he knows. In that instant, the calm existence of this middle-aged New York City man becomes something unrecognizable: he wants revenge, but also something more." "Killing Johnny Fry is the story of Cordell's dark, funny, soulful, and outrageously explicit sexual odyssey in search of a new way of life. Along the way, he encounters a mysterious woman named Sisypha, who leads him deep into the city's forbidden heart."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

A serious look at sex from a man's perspective ( )
  pharrm | Apr 3, 2010 |
Cordell inadvertently walks in on his long-time lover having very rough sex in her Central Park West apartment. Instead of confronting them, he watches for a few minutes, leaves, then begins plotting to kill his rival. While doing so, he abruptly quits his job, starts a new a career (sort of) and takes several new lovers, and has rough sex with all of them.This book reminds me of the scene in Dashiell Hammett's "The Maltese Faclon," where Sam Spade tells a story about a man who was narrowly missed being smashed to death by a falling piece of iron from a construction site while walking to work. "It was if someone had pulled a lid off his life and shown him the works," Spade says (paraphrase). The man disappears, his wife hires Spade to find him, and he eventually does, living almost a carbon copy of the life he left behind.Mosley, however, will have none of that. His character Cordell does change--into an erotic stallion who seems to have the ability to bed any woman he wants, while at the same time re-directing a rather boring and aimless life. ( )

This was sort of light and sort of not. I think I may have read the author's detective series a long time ago. It could have been better edited, I think - the sex scenes sort of ended up with descriptions that were repeated from earlier ones. ( )
