Bad Boy Brawly Brown

Bad Boy Brawly Brown

An Easy Rawlins Mystery – from Bill Clinton’s favourite novelist.

The year is 1964, and though Easy seems settled into honest work as a Los Angeles custodian, he’s having other problems – notably, his adopted son’s wish to quit school, and lingering remorse over the death (in A LITTLE YELLOW DOG) of his homicidal crony, Raymond “Mouse” Alexander. Yet he remains willing to do “favors” for folks in need. So, when Alva Torres comes to him, worried that her son, Brawly Brown, will get into trouble running with black revolutionaries, Easy agrees to find the young man and “somehow … get him back home.”

His first day on the job, however, Rawlins stumbles across Alva’s ex-husband – murdered – and he’s soon dodging police, trying to connect a black activist’s demise to a weapons cache, and exposing years of betrayal that have made Brawly an ideal pawn in disastrous plans.

Reviews

Simply the best crime writer around today. One of the joys of Mosley's writing is the ease that characterises every aspect of it... The characters live and breathe in a way that is utterly convincing and absorbing
Guardian
There are few writers within the crime genre who recreate time and place with Mosley's effortless exactness, even fewer who can replicate his masterfully sustained sense of danger
Sunday Times
Easy Rawlins comes back from the dead, inspiring his creator to write his best novel for years
Mail on Sunday on LITTLE GREEN
This is classic noir territory, filled with unintentional heroes with the best intentions and dangerous dames... A class act
