Walter Mosley's indelible detective Easy Rawlins is back, with a new detective agency and a new mystery to solve. Picking up where Rose Gold left off in LA in the late 1960s, Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins finds his life in transition. He's ready to--finally--propose to his girlfriend, Bonnie Shay, and start a life together. And he's taken the money he got from the Rose Gold case and has, together with two partners, started a new detective agency. But, inevitably, a case gets in the way: Easy's friend Mouse introduces him to Rufus Tyler, a very old man everyone calls Charcoal Joe. Joe's friend's son, Seymour (young, bright, top of his class at Stanford), has been arrested and charged with the murder of a white man from Redondo Beach. Rufus tells Easy he will pay and pay well to see his nephew exonerated, but seeing as how Seymour was literally found standing over the man's dead body at his cabin home and the racially charged motives behind it, that might prove to be a tall order. Between his new company, a heart that should be broken but is not, a whole raft of new bad guys on his tail, and a bad odor that surrounds Charcoal Joe, Easy has his hands full, his horizons askew, and a life in shambles on the ground around his feet.… (mer)

Easy Rawlins has been hired by Mouse to prove Seymour Brathwaite, a young physicist and the son of Rufus (Charcoal Joe) Tyler's friend Jasmine, innocent of murder . Charcoal Joe's reputation is on a par with Raymond (Mouse) Alexander, but he has a certain respect for Easy: "You one'a the most dangerous men in Southern California.....You got Saul Lynx and Whisper Natly in the office with you. Raymond Alexander willing to kill for you and you don't even know it. There's Melvin Suggs, special assistant to Chief Reddin, and then there's Fearless Jones, Christmas Black, that insurance millionaire got the whole French Foreign Legion at his beck and call. And if that wasn't bad enough I hear one'a your friends is that crazy Indian, Redbird. I had a business associate once sent five men after that red man – they never even found one finger."
Easy has established a detective agency, WRENS-L, and has partnered with Saul Lynx and Tinsford (Whisper) Natty. Subplots of the novel deal with investigations handled by Easy's partners but the main story is that of relationships, deceit, murder and betrayal: all deftly and powerfully written by Mosley.

I've been reading about Easy Rawlins for over 20 years, ever since Bill Clinton first flagged him up, and we're kind of growing old together. Set just around the time I was born, Rawlins here is the same age as I am now.

As complexly plotted as ever, Charcoal Joe finds Easy establishing himself (finally) as a licensed private detective, and this story revisits almost the entire cast of supporting characters from the last 20 years. It starts with Mouse, which is never a good place to start, and takes in Bonnie and Jackson Blue, Mama Jo and Melvin Suggs with a nice crossover from Fearless Jones. Mosley is playing his greatest hits here and the crowd loves it.

I stayed up all night to finish Devil in a Blue Dress back in 1996. This time around, I went to sleep in the middle, but my reading experience was just as fresh and as thrilling as the first time. ( )

Complex story-many characters and many double crosses before the end.

Easy Rawlins Number 14. He's settled and rolling. Mouse- cooling it a little. All the characters still in place. And Mosley cruising along.

Mosley is a machine, one that rings true, even when he is outrageous. Nice easy read. ( )

It's a great read. The narrative voice is powerful and carries you along through one heck of a story. It's not perfect, but that's because nothing is. This one is close enough. ( )

On Robinson Boulevard a block and a half north of Pico, just south of Whitworth Drive, on the eastern side of the street, there once stood a three-story turquoise building that had been a posh home in the thirties.
