Publisher's Summary

Paris Minton is a man who would just as soon walk away from trouble as stand up to it. But in 1950s Los Angeles, sometimes trouble just comes and gets you.
Fearless Jones shows up at Paris Minton's door one night with a simple request: an attractive woman has asked him to help her find her husband, a man Fearless worked for briefly, and Fearless wants Paris to take the case with him. The next morning, a suspicious stranger shows up at Paris's door, and he's asking after Fearless Jones.
A few short questions later, Paris is running for his life, tangled up with one of the wealthiest women in L.A., and wondering whom he should fear more - the people he's looking for or the people he's working for. One misstep at a time, he tumbles into the most complex and terrifying situation he's ever found - one that even his invincible friend Fearless may not be able to save him from.

One of the best

I have been listening to the Walter Mosely books on audible for a while now. This one is really one of the best. If you haven't tried Mosely, start with this one. You get some really great characters, with a story line that keeps you guessing until the end. And the narration by Don Cheadle -- PERFECT! He captures nuances of character that few narrators attempt. The story revolves around Fearless and his friend and bookstore owner, Paris. Fearless gets into trouble when he tries to help a woman, and brings Paris along for the ride. The story is for adults. It contains some sexual situations and a few (but not that many) expletives. Give your ears and mind a treat. Take this book for a listen.

Great book, flawless narration

This is one of the best books I have listened to. The story is fast paced, believable and the characters are multi-dimensional. The relationship between Fearless and Paris is fascinating, and can't wait to hear their next misadventure. The thing that sets this book apart from many others, though, is the narration by Don Cheadle - a great actor who played Mosley's "Mouse" in the movie version of "Devil in a Blue Dress".
