In the latest and most surprising novel in the bestselling Leonid McGill series, Leonid finds himself caught between his sins of the past and an all-too-vivid present.

Seven years ago, Zella Grisham came home to find her man, Harry Tangelo, in bed with her friend. The weekend before, $6.8 million had been stolen from Rutgers Assurance Corp., whose offices are across the street from where Zella worked. Zella didn't remember shooting Harry, but she didn't deny it either. The district attorney was inclined to call it temporary insanity—until the police found $80,000 from the Rutgers heist hidden in her storage space.

For reasons of his own, Leonid McGill is convinced of Zella's innocence. But as he begins his investigation, his life begins to unravel. His wife is drinking more than she should. His oldest son has dropped out of college and moved in with an ex-prostitute. His youngest son is working for him and trying to stay within the law. And his father, whom he thought was long dead, has turned up under an alias.

A gripping story of murder, greed, and retribution, All I Did Was Shoot My Man is also the poignant tale of one man's attempt to stay connected to his family.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The best in the series to date…Complex, satisfying.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Like the city he works in, and the Mosley books he inhabits, Leonid McGill is complicated, savvy, and full of surprises: a would-be champ who can’t win for losing, a fighter who can never be counted out.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Mosley…is in fine form in his fourth McGill mystery, a complicated tale of atonement and family.”

    Washington Post

  • “A big city never looks the same once you’ve walked its streets with a hard-boiled private eye. Preferably someone as perceptive and thoughtful as Leonid McGill…[He] doesn’t so much walk the city as case it for danger. Keeping pace with him is as much an education as an adventure.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A 2013 Edgar Allan Poe Award Nominee for Best Novel

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Robin | 2/19/2014

    " Mosley is a master of pacing, atmosphere and dialogue. I like Leonid, with all his flaws. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Debbie Maskus | 2/17/2014

    " I have read The Fortunate Son by Mosley, but this story is written differently. This belongs to the Leonid McGill series set in New York about t an ex boxer turned detective. Leonid McGill has led a fast life by working on the fringes of the law. In this story, he aids a young woman that framed for a heist. Mosley seems very conscious of race and social status. Every character is defined by skin tone. All races intermingle with little dissention. Class structure and race structure seem obsolete. This outlook reeks of simplicity. Many parts of the narrative hint at the detective novels of the 1930's, a little like the film noir mysteries with Robert Mitchum. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jean | 2/16/2014

    " I enjoyed the book but there were just so many characters that I had a difficult time keeping up with them. "

    " Maybe its me but this was the worst book ever. The author was all over the place as was the main character. I didnt enjoy anything about this book and frankly felt like I wasted my time. "
