Paris Minton is a man who would just as soon walk away from trouble as stand up to it. But in 1950s Los Angeles, sometimes trouble just comes and gets you.

Fearless Jones shows up at Paris Minton's door one night with a simple request: an attractive woman has asked him to help her find her husband, a man Fearless worked for briefly, and Fearless wants Paris to take the case with him. The next morning, a suspicious stranger shows up at Paris's door, and he's asking after Fearless Jones.

A few short questions later, Paris is running for his life, tangled up with one of the wealthiest women in L.A., and wondering whom he should fear more - the people he's looking for or the people he's working for. One misstep at a time, he tumbles into the most complex and terrifying situation he's ever found - one that even his invincible friend Fearless may not be able to save him from.

Listener Opinions

    " Paris and Fearless find themselves entangled in a rich black woman's history and her money. They try to stay alive with a crazy white guy on their trail. Paris Minton's love of books and Fearless Jones' loyalty to him add warmth and depth to the characters. Don Cheadle's reading of this book just couldn't be better. "

    " The audiobook is superbly read by Don Cheadle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 1/6/2014

    " the book is similar to "Bad Boy Brawley Brown" in finding someone, yet more twists and turns with fearless jones included. So far its good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/13/2013

    " Good period mystery. I enjoyed the 1950s LA setting told through the African American community. Fearless and Paris are great characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 11/23/2013

    " A good book; not perfect, but certainly enjoyable. Sometimes I get annoyed w/ stupid things, and naming a jazz musician "Lips McGee" is one of them. I shouldn't care, it's irrelevant as far as the book is concerned, but I'll never forget that name and how lame it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 9/24/2013

    " Just when you think he can't get any better than Easy Rawlins this series is written and it was great. Paris is quite a character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marty Peters | 8/31/2013

    " This is the first book by Walter Mosley that I read. I couldn't put it down. Paris Minton and Fearless Jones were so real and believable. Since then I've read most of Mr. Mosley's other books and will continue to read them as long as he continues to write. Brilliant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 7/3/2013

    " These get better as they go, and I like them better than the Rawlins series. Among my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ero | 8/4/2012

    " Typically excellent Mosley noir, with a lot moving under the surface. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 5/10/2012

    " It was an interesting story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billie | 3/24/2012

    " Really great book, outstanding charcters with enough plot twists to keep one interested yet not too confusing.Paris Minton and Fearless Jones are two guys I would love to sit and have some drinks and listen to some jazz and talk books wars and women "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marissa Morrison | 3/10/2012

    " It's unadulterated fun rooting for Paris, the protagonist, and his friend Fearless. They are two basically good guys who get tangled up with crooks and murderers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 11/25/2011

    " A nice exploration of another character in the Easy Rawlins universe.Full of the period detail that you've come to expect from Walter Mosley as well as being a good, fast paced mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felice Ellis | 10/25/2011

    " alot of twist and turns in this book.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MavLit Publishing | 7/22/2011

    " I liked Mr. Mosely's writing style and his choice of words in this book. Socrates is a rough, gruff, dude who has a view of the world unique to himself. But this is the kind of book that if you're not into Mr. Mosley, you'd probably fall asleep reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Veronica | 7/1/2011

    " Very interesting suspense yarn set in the 1950s Era. The southern dialect that Moseley employs in his writing can be difficult to pronounce, but thus far, it's quite interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis | 6/27/2011

    " I've always thought of Walter Mosley as a legendary figure in literature. "Fear Itself" probably wasn't the best place to start but it was enough to inspire further reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 5/19/2011

    " Mosley does it AGAIN! Walter Mosley is one of my all time faves. This book was especially well done. Just when I thought I knew what would happen in this mystery, he took a different turn. Excellent read! "
