His name is etched on the door of his Manhattan office: LEONID McGILL , PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR. It's a name that takes a little explaining, but he's used to it. Daddy was a communist and great-great- Granddaddy was a slave master from Scotland. You know, the black man's family tree is mostly root. Whatever you see aboveground is only a hint at the real story.

Ex-boxer, hard drinker, in a business that trades mostly in cash and favors: McGill's an old-school P.I. working a city that's gotten fancy all around him. Fancy or not, he has always managed to get by - keep a roof over the head of his wife and kids, and still manage a little fun on the side - mostly because he's never been above taking a shady job for a quick buck. But like the city itself, McGill is turning over a new leaf, decided to go from crooked to slightly bent.

New York City in the twenty-first century is a city full of secrets - and still a place that reacts when you know where to poke and which string to pull. That's exactly the kind of thing Leonid McGill knows how to do. As soon as The Long Fall begins, with McGill calling in old markers and greasing NYPD palms to unearth some seemingly harmless information for a high-paying client, he learns that even in this cleaned-up city, his commitment to the straight and narrow is going to be constantly tested.

Listener Opinions

    " If I hadn't read the Easy Rawlins books, the Socrates Fortlow books, and the Fearless Jones books, this would probably be a 4 star book. As it is, Moseley has written so many good books that he's his own strongest competition. This new detective, Leonid McGill, has potential, and Mosley always has good characters and can tell a good story, but I just wasn't knocked over the way I am with others of Mosley's books. "

    " I could not get into the characters. I was warming up to the new detective but I need more time. Many of the characters seemed similar and alone dimensional. I love the Walter Mosley's Easy Rawlings books because a they took you somewhere and gave you insight into a time and place. This gives you a look into a subculture but at this point I don't care nor am I interested in it. The storyline seemed thin. I may give the next book a chance because I enjoy Mosley. "

    " Disappointing. He's cranking out multiple books a year and it shows. I love the Socrates Fortlow novels and enjoyed the first six in the Easy Rawlins mystery series (haven't read the rest). "

    " Not usually one for mysteries or hard boiled crime dramas but this was a great book. Found a copy at Goodwill and figured I 80 cents was small price to pay and took a chance. This is probably the third good book I've read as a result of Goodwill that I otherwise would not have. "
