Walter Mosley is back with a whole new character to love ... As gorgeous a novel as anything he's ever written. And with Joe King Oliver I'm betting, and hoping, he's given us a character we haven't see the last of.
Gritty ... The plot soars ... Few mystery writers can examine issues of race--how it divides and binds people--as clearly and unflinchingly as Walter Mosley.
Great stuff ... The vibrant characters and pulsating dialogue are primo Mosley.
This gifted raconteur of the African American experience has produced an absorbing noir beauty of a tale
