    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Its careful crafting of plot, character and language take you deep into its moment in history, while maintaining a broad human perspective. It is a detective book fashioned out of literary fabric.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Some boyhood memories can move men.


    Any additional comments?

    Mosley is among the most sophisticated writers in America's ongoing quest to formulate its complex narrative of race. Easy Rawlins speaks on many levels, in many voices, tweaking the assumptions of many audiences. Mosley will be on the classics bookshelf forever.
