New Walter Mosley Books

Walter Mosley has been extremely prolific. Not only does he have this new "Easy Rollins" title out, but he also has two other new books out this year. And he is slated for at least two more next season! Always interesting, always well-written, and increasingly politically aware.

I must admit that I've decided to not include into Indigo's collection his latest adventure into "booty" lit with his title Killing Johnny Fry: A Sexistential Novel. There is enough of that going around without Mosley jumping into the fray.

Blonde Faith by Walter Mosley

Easy Rawlins, L.A.s most reluctant detective, comes home one day to find Easter, the daughter of his friend Christmas Black, left on his doorstep. Easy knows that this could only mean that the ex-marine Black is probably dead, or will be soon. Easters appearance is only the beginning, as Easy is immersed in a sea of problems. The love of his life is marrying another man and his friend Mouse is wanted for the murder of a father of 12. As hes searching for a clue to Christmas Blacks whereabouts, two suspicious MPs hire him to find his friend Black on behalf of the U.S. Army. Easy's investigation brings him to Faith Laneer, a blonde woman with a dark past. As Easy begins to put the pieces together, he realizes that Blacks disappearance has its roots in Vietnam, and that Faith might be in a world of danger.

Fear of the Dark by Walter Mosley

Fearless Jones and Paris Minton, stars of the bestsellers "Fearless Jones" and "Fear Itself," return in Mosley's fast-paced thriller about family and revenge.

When his cousin Ulysses S. Grant IV comes knocking, Paris Minton would rather keep the door shut, because "Useless" is a snake who brings bad luck wherever he goes. But trouble always finds an open window, and soon theres a man murdered on his bookshop floor, evidence of blackmail is discovered, and Useless has vanished. To get out of this mess, Paris turns to his solid-hearted but quick-fisted friend Fearless Jones. Traversing the complex landscape of 1950s Los Angeles, where a wrong look can get a black man killed, Paris and Fearless find deperate women, secret lives--and more than one dead body.
