Waterstones Says

The disappearance of a young white woman in 1948 Los Angeles transforms down-on-his-luck labourer Ezekiel ‘Easy’ Rawlins into a razor sharp private investigator in this triumphant, award-winning first instalment in Walter Mosley’s bestselling series.

'I need to find somebody and I might need a little help looking...'

It's 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...

In the sleazy, fearful city, Easy must rely on his instincts, not just to solve the case, but to save his own life.
