The welcome return of Leonid McGill, Walter Mosley's NYC-based private eye, his East Coast foil to his immortal L.A.-based detective Easy Rawlins. As the Boston Globe raved, "A poignantly real character, [McGill is] not only the newest of the great fictional detectives, but also an incisive and insightful commentator on the American scene."

     In the fifth Leonid McGill novel, Leonid finds himself in an unusual pickle of trying to balance his cases with his chaotic personal life. Leonid's father is still out there somewhere, and his wife is in an uptown sanitarium trying to recover from the deep depression that led to her attempted suicide in the previous novel. His wife's condition has put a damper on his affair with Aura Ullman, his girlfriend. And his son, Twill, has been spending a lot of time out of the office with his own case, helping a young thief named Fortune and his girlfriend, Liza.
     Meanwhile, Leonid is approached by an unemployed office manager named Hiram Stent to track down the whereabouts of his cousin, Celia, who is about to inherit millions of dollars from her father's side of the family. Leonid declines the case, but after his office is broken into and Hiram is found dead, he gets reeled into the underbelly of Celia's wealthy old-money family. It's up to Leonid to save who he can and incriminate the guilty; all while helping his son finish his own investigation; locating his own father; reconciling (whatever that means) with his wife and girlfriend; and attending the wedding of Gordo, his oldest friend.

    I wish I knew Leonid. I could visualize every character in the book every restaurant and every street he walk down.

    Walter Mosley is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read all his books, starting with Devil in a Blue Dress when it first came out, each book just as exciting and informative as the last and, of course, saw the movies. Can’t wait for the next one. Thank you, Mr. Mosley.
  • Nice writing save the Gratuitous And Detailed Sex scene

    By &$#LoU
    A well written book that manages a detailed extramarital sex scene in the opening chapter. If I wanted to experience that, there are other venues.
  • Outstanding!

    Another Walter Mosley classic. Story of family, love, danger, mystery and a little humor sprinkled in to cut the tension. Leonid has a complicated life, he is passionate and will help most folks almost to the death. Thank you Mr. Mosley, patiently waiting for the next novel of the series .

    Another perfectly written novel. I never wanted the book to end. Whenever he comes out with another Easy Rawlins mystery or Leonid story I think, how can he top the last one? But, Mosley manages to do it every time! Just, wow. Thank you Walter Mosley for another beautifully written book.
