Little Green

An Easy Rawlins Mystery
by Walter Mosley

The best thing about these mysteries is that the city of Los Angeles and the era that they take place in are each characters just as important as Easy and Mouse. Even though Little Green picks up only a short time after the last book, Blonde Faith, ended, it’s clear that the times are changing fast.

Recovering from driving off a cliff, Easy agrees to help his friend Mouse find a missing young man, “Little Green”, who has disappeared after a bad drug trip. Easy really should be recuperating, but with help from a strange potion made by Mama Jo, he hits the streets to work on his latest case. In classic noir mystery style, nothing fazes Easy Rawlins. Whether maneuvering through the hippie masses on Sunset Strip, sleeping in a makeshift drug commune set up in an upscale mansion, or helping a friend with a corporate espionage case, he takes it all in stride, in pain, and doped up on that potion. Meanwhile, we, the reader, are on the edge of our seats with worry.
