Walter Mosley did a superb job of developing very interesting and memorable characters who really a lot to the story. Also, Mosley did a wonderful job with the plot. Despite what "A reader from Oregon" claims, the story does not "lag, drag, and fizz out." This novel has an exceptionally captivating plot, even for a non-mystery fan such as myslef. There were enough twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end! I normally do not read many mystery novels, and this is actually my first Walter Mosley novel. And even now, I wouldn't say that I am "hooked." But I will likely read more of his novels and maybe even read the whole Easy Rawlings series. If you are a fan of Mosely and/or mysteries, you will surely enjoy this! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
