* WINNER OF THE CWA JOHN CREASEY AWARD* * THE FIRST NOVEL BY INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED WRITER WALTER MOSLEY * 'A damn good read' VAL MCDERMID 'A brilliant novel' JONATHAN KELLERMAN 'A first novel of astonishing virtuosity' SUNDAY TIMES I need to find somebody and I might need a little help looking... The summer of '48 in the city of Angels and there's heat on the streets when Daphne Monet hits the sidewalk. Heat when she disappears with a trunkload of somebody else's cash. Easy Rawlins is a war veteran just fired from his job. Drinking in a friend's bar, he wonders how to meet his mortgage when a white man in a linen suit walks in, offering good money if Easy will locate Miss Monet, a blonde with a reputation. It's a simple decision, but for one thing. Nobody warned him - better the devil you know... 'Magnificent... a wonderful new talent' Financial Times 'Sharp and meatily convincing' The Times 'Perfectly balanced concoctions of lust, violence, politics and race' Sunday Times

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Magnificent ... a wonderful new talent' * Financial Times *
'A brilliant novel. Period.' -- Jonathan Kellerman
'Always a damn good read' -- Val McDermid
'Sharp and meatily convincing ... one of the most impressive first crime novels' * The Times *
'What makes Mosley so important in American literature is not just his ability to pen novels that grab you by the throat, but the way his heroes reflect the uncertainty, the fears, and the moral dilemmas of America' * Daily Express *
'To write five novels about a character as interesting and complex as Easy and never to flag, never to miss a beat, is pretty amazing' * Guardian *
'For a writer who has the legacy of Chester Himes and more to live up to, Walter Mosley makes a distinctly confident start to his career' * Time Out *
'Mr Mosley makes us root for Easy Rawlins, a black knight-errant, and his lawless sidekick, Raymond Mouse Alexander, an armed and dangerous Sancho Panza' * New York Times *
'His Easy Rawlins novels are a series of perfectly balanced concoctions of lust, violence, politics and race. You crack a new one open knowing exactly what sort of pleasure is in store' * Sunday Times *
