From the author of the Easy Rawlins series comes a new crimebuster—Fearless Jones.

Fearless Jones is a gritty, noirish thriller set in 1950s’ Los Angeles. When sultry Elana Love walks into mild-mannered Paris Minton’s bookshop, he knows she spells trouble. Elana is trying to escape her boyfriend Leon, who is ‘three kinds of bad’—which doesn’t bode well for Paris when he is seduced by her. Soon afterwards Elana disappears and Paris’s shop is burned to the ground. He calls on war hero and jailbird friend Fearless Jones to come to his aid. Together they set off to find Elana so that Paris can get his life back on track again.

    " I regret buying this. Dull story and ridiculous characters make for a painful read. I had to really push myself to finish it because I really wanted to give up about 100 pages into it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marissa Morrison | 2/1/2014

    " Another great set of characters, gun-swinging action and complicated criminal plots by Walter Moseley! I could have done without descriptions of the narrator's manhood and sexual entanglements (is it perhaps a neurological condition that leaves him unconscious after every romantic encounter?), but these were minor annoyances in an otherwise fun reading experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clifton | 1/28/2014

    " This book was intresting and held my attention from start to finish . One thing from the book that i learned was that it is always good to have a friend . For example, Fearless and Mr. Minton . The both of them were the best of friends eventhough it seemed as though Paris couldn't stand Fearless at times. Throughout the book, Paris and Fearless' relationship held them together and eventually got them out of their situation. "

    " I am almost finished... I just love the way Mosley writes. His imagery is superb, you really "hear" the voice of each character, and he simply tells a great story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bob | 1/16/2014

    " Had to give up on it and move on. I found that I just didn't care to spend any more time with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaelin Hayden | 1/16/2014

    " this book was good it kept me interested the whole time. it was mixed with all types of violence,money,and sex.i couldnt put the book down even though i didnt understand some parts. i just had to read it over again until i did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tessa Eger | 1/7/2014

    " I didn't really finish--I skipped to the end. Somehow it just wasn't my kind of thing. The writing was ok, I just didn't click with the characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce Jackson | 1/3/2014

    " Great read! I truly got lost in how Mosley worked in the whole Los Angeles scene and the race relations between such a metropolitan melting pot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis Ferrell | 12/29/2013

    " i learned that even though things may not be going your way in the beginning most things that start off bad work out in the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/22/2013

    " Probably the best Walter Mosley book I've read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maduck831 | 11/14/2013

    " continuing a noir theme, enjoy mosely's writing style, different (but still gives that same "vibe") as chandler and explores a different part of los angeles for the time period...apparently there are more fearless jones novels, will need to check out... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. Cruz | 10/14/2013

    " Masterful detective story. Protagonist and fearless Jones are the black hardy boys. Decent read. I enjoyed it. "

    " 1954 Los Angeles with two black men navigating racism and thugs to find the men who burned down Paris Mintor's used book store. A helpful old Jewish couple, a beautiful, complicated woman, and others follow the trail to the end. Loved the characters and writing in this book. "
