4.0 out of 5 stars Great Characters Never Die ... Their Authors Eventually Bring Them Back to Life, 4 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Little Green: Easy Rawlins 12 (Hardcover)
"Jesus said to him, 'Rise, take up your bed and walk.'" -- John 5:8 (NKJV)

What could bring more anticipation than having Easy Rawlins return from what looked like the end in Blonde Faith? With so many years between novels, I'm sure you are expecting the best of the bunch. Well, I hope you find it to be so.

I didn't, but I'm still grateful for the chance to read the book. I was again impressed by how well Walter Mosley captures what I remember of race relations in LA during the late 1960s.

Given that it looked as if Easy was gone for good, Walter Mosley does a fine job of providing a credible explanation for his unlikely survival. I almost felt as if I was with Mouse struggling to bring Easy back up to the road.

My objections to the book are focused in two areas: Easy comes back to full strength much too fast for someone with his injuries ... and he does so with a not-quite-credible reliance on Mama Jo's Gator's Blood. I felt as if I could see Walter Mosley's tongue sticking deep into his cheek as he wrote these sections.

The mystery and investigation are vintage Easy Rawlins, aside from my objections. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.
