But his life changes when Easy comes in early one morning to find one of the teachers already in her classroom. She has her dog with her, and a story about a husband gone mad. Before Easy knows what's happening, the teacher is in his arms. Before the day is over the teacher is gone, leaving Easy with her dog - and a corpse in the school garden.

The principal of the school wants to fire him. His old friends aren't the same, and his new friends might mean his death. A murderer is running lose somewhere. And a little yellow dog plots revenge.

    " (3.2) I've said this before if you want to read crime fiction of LA in the 40's-70's, read James Ellroy, but then read the Ez Rawlins mysteries to get a handle on the black side of town during those turbulent, lawless times. Some of the tropes of the genre are here: the femme fatales and the loose women, the cops on the take and the desperate folk living on the margins of a city; however, the gamechanger is that the detective's black and that gives his desperation, his lone gunman like mentality a sheen of isolation and drama that's lacking in other smart workings of detective fiction.

    " Absolutely loving Easy Rawlins. Thoroughly enthralled by Mr. Mosley's prose. I have always been fascinated with "Walter Mosley." Don't know why I'm just getting around to reading him. I'm going to try to get him to mentor me. :-) "
