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
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
Time Out
