I was first introduced to Leonid McGill about three weeks ago after hearing about this book on the Tom Joyner Morning show. I am so thrilled to have been listening because I have not been able to get enough of this character. A man who knows that he must make up for his past by doing what he can to help people is such an attractive man!
Mr. Willis is an EXCELLENT narrator. He moves with ease when changing characters. I'm not sure if I am in love with Leonid McGill, Walter Mosley or Mirron Willis.
Start from the first bood to know and appreciate who Mr. McGill and his family are.

I enjoyed this book. More than the other McGill books I've read so far.
But something about the story kept bugging me. I didn't realize what it was until I got near the end.
I grew up in NY, living there throughout the 2000s. The dialogue (or maybe the voice interpretation), vernacular, and slang used by the characters are not what you would find in 21st century New York.
This story, and the two before it, felt like it would be more at place set in the 1950s along side Easy Rawlings.
Again, enjoyed the story, but the dialogue feels out of place for the era the story is set.
