Like the first book in the series, The Long Fall , this one incorporates spare, tough dialogue, reminiscent of the old noir era of mystery writers such as Ross MacDonald and Raymond Chandler. Unlike the Easy Rawlins novels, which weaved an historical path through several decades of criminal life in urban Los Angeles, the Leonid McGill books take place in modern day New York City. His wife cheats on him, and he cheats on his wife. Like the Easy Rawlins books, the McGill novels are packed with an eclectic cast of characters, both criminals and ordinary folks.
McGill has lived a violent life that requires both street smarts and cerebral intellect. After being on the wrong side of the law for many years, he is now trying to walk a straighter path as a private detective. But problematic investigations keep preventing him from doing things the traditional — or legal — way. My favorite Mosley books are the ones that feature a wise and intriguing character named Socrates Fortlow.
The first of those was the outstanding short story collection Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned. These are vital, life-affirming stories that leave you thinking about life and love, justice and redemption. The most recent of the Socrates Fortlow novels, The Right Mistake , is another great, ambitious effort. Like the short stories, the plot in this novel veers more towards social commentary and philosophy than mystery. Gripping indeed. Search: Go! Walter Mosley — Rose Gold There is not much deviation in formula or style for Mosley in this latest entry in the long-running Easy Rawlins series.
