We thought we'd seen the last of Easy Rawlins at the end of BLONDE FAITH. But it takes more than an oncoming car to stop LA's finest PI.
As Easy wakes from his coma, the last thing he needs is an investigation. But a friend's son is in trouble and old habits die hard. So Easy wades into the squats, clubs and LSD dens of Sunset Boulevard, trying to find the missing boy, Evander. What he discovers will take him on a journey into the dark underbelly of 1960s culture, where Evander's disappearance is only one piece of a far larger puzzle...
LITTLE GREEN is Mosley's finest work since DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS - a brilliant novel showing a world-class author reunited with his most beloved protagonist.
In 2007 s Blonde Faith, set in 1967, Easy Rawlins drove drunkenly off a cliff in what his creator indicated was likely his last appearance. Now, after two months of sliding in and out of consciousness, Easy begins the long journey back to the living, in Mosley s superb 12th mystery featuring his iconic sleuth. Saved by Ray Mouse Alexander and the ministrations of Mama Jo, Easy is asked by Mouse to find Evander Little Green Noon, who went clubbing on the Sunset Strip and disappeared. Weakened but determined to keep moving, Easy is buoyed by Mama Jo s potent brew she calls Gator s Blood and the support of numerous friends, including Martin Martins and Jackson Blue. Things are changing in L.A., and Easy finds hope in the hippie culture. In the course of his search for Little Green, Easy earns an astonished accolade from Blue, who says he never thought he d see the day when Raymond Alexander had to tell Easy Rawlins to hold back. If there were an Edgar for best comeback player, Easy Rawlins would be a shoo-in. 8-city author tour.
