Publisher's Summary

Walter Mosley's indelible detective Easy Rawlins is back, with a new detective agency and a new mystery to solve.
Picking up where Rose Gold left off in LA in the late 1960s, Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins finds his life in transition. He's ready to - finally - propose to his girlfriend, Bonnie Shay, and start a life together. And he's taken the money he got from the Rose Gold case and has, together with two partners, started a new detective agency. But inevitably a case gets in the way: Easy's friend, Mouse, introduces him to Rufus Tyler, a very old man everyone calls Charcoal Joe. Joe's friend's son, Seymour (young, bright, top of his class at Stanford), has been arrested and charged with the murder of a white man from Redondo Beach. Rufus tells Easy he will pay and pay well to see his nephew exonerated, but seeing as how Seymour was literally found standing over the man's dead body at his cabin home and the racially charged motives behind it, that might prove to be a tall order.
Between his new company, a heart that should be broken but is not, a whole raft of new bad guys on his tail, and a bad odor that surrounds Charcoal Joe, Easy has his hands full, his horizons askew, and a life in shambles on the ground around his feet.

The best Easy ever!

Being a true Walter Mosley and Easy Rawlings fan isn't easy, but this installment was worth the wait. Can't wait to see what's coming next.

Charcoal Joe is another excellent "Easy Rawlins" tale.

I am a Walter Mosley fan. I especially love this series. This work will certainly satisfy the appetite of anyone who loves the Easy Rawlins stories. The audible narration bring the characters to life and leaps into your ears. Only disappointment is that this one came out in 2016, so now I have to hope that Mr Mosley will write book 15 very soon!
