More Info

Our next book is Walter Mosley's Charcoal Joe: An Easy Rawlin' Mystery.

If you've not read Walter Mosley, your'e in for a treat! Here are some reviews by some other fans of Walter Mosley:
“I’d know that voice [in Charcoal Joe] anywhere. It’s the seductive drawl and lowdown dirty laugh of Walter Mosley’s mellow private eye, Easy Rawlins.”
—Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

“Incomparable. . . . Easy quickly finds himself in a mess. . . . But as ever, [he] finds a way to rise above such circumstances”
— Chicago Tribune

“These memorable characters are strong, shrewd, purposeful and humorous.” —Los Angeles Sentinel

“Much like Raymond Chandler did in his portrait of Southern California for his fictional private eye Philip Marlowe, or Dashiell Hammett did with Sam Spade, Mr. Mosley takes readers into the worlds of everyone from psychopathic criminals to business magnates, along with the minor players such as con men, tipsters, career criminals and cops.” —Pittsburgh Post Gazette
