El ano: 1948, pasada ya la epoca de la Ley Seca, pero en un mundo en el que aun hay cientos de oportunidades para negocios mas bien ilegales. La ciudad: Los Angeles, donde florecen los clubes nocturnos y la juerga de la posguerra. El protagonista: Easy Rawlins, un curtido ex combatiente negro sin trabajo, al que le caera del cielo o por encargode Dewitt Albright, un personaje harto dudoso la mission de buscar a una mujer. Ella es Daphne Monet, una cantante blanca que frecuenta garitos de negros donde los blancos no son habitualmente bien recibidos, rubia, hermosa, dificil de encontrar y mas bien fatal. Y su busqueda llevara a Easy desde los mas reconditos clubes nocturnos hast alas residencies de los politicos que esconden mas de un secreto, desde las callejuelas de los duros guetos de la gente de color hasta los mas complejos laberintos del poder.


Easy Rawlins has few illusions about the world, at least not about the world of a young black veteran in the late 1940s in Southern California. Fired from his job on the line at an aircraft plant, he accepts a white man's offer to pay him for finding a beautiful, mysterious Frenchwoman.

Listener Opinions

    " I liked the main character, Easy Rawlins, and I enjoyed the noir style. But I found that after awhile I was getting all the supporting characters mixed up and I thought the resolution was very rushed and not fully developed. A fun book for sure, but not a classic for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 5/7/2011

    " Enjoyably unpretentious homage to Raymond Chandler, the twist being that the protagonist is a black guy trying to survive in post-war LA. Slick and readable. "

    " Easy Rawlins is one of those guys you cannot hate! He's the no-nonsense type, but has a sensitive nature. This book was really good, and Denzel did a nice job in the movie. "

    " I listened to this on audio. I will def listen to more by him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 4/27/2011

    " Noir with a twist that most of the characters are black, so along with all the classic tropes, Mosley looks at changing post-war racial conditions. Real page-turner. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Risa | 4/24/2011

    " I don't really like mysteries or stories about blond idylls, but I do like the author's way of writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edmond | 4/16/2011

    " What a great discovery when I first found this author. Thanks to Bill Clinton "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 3/30/2011

    " All of Walter Mosley's books are thrilling. He's able to throw a mystery into a set of characters so rich you barely notice the mystery until it's twisted through the entire tale. Then you're so caught up in it that you forget to pay attention to the lush scenery and verbal twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jellybean | 3/21/2011

    " I loved the setting and I think Mosley described it perfectly. It was almost as if you smell those nightclubs. But some of the plot dragged a bit to me and was all over the place. It's a good book and I definitely liked it but I didn't love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 3/4/2011

    " Pitch perfect detective noir. It has it all. Perfect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 3/3/2011

    " It all begins here -- Easy Rawlins, a black detective in racist Los Angeles, determined to make his mark without sinking to the level of mindless violence. His sidekick Mouse is one of the most dangerous killers in fiction! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 2/26/2011

    " A solid start for a much celebrated series, strongly evokes a sense of Post-War LA. Works well as an audiobook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 2/25/2011

    " Read this years ago, loved it. Reread it a couple of years ago before Walter Mosely gave a talk here in town. Just read it again. Easy Rawlins comes home from WWII to an L.A. which is not ready to treat him with respect. Can't wait to read some more Mosley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maurice | 2/22/2011

    " The first of a great series of mysteries set in 1950's Los Angeles. "
