    Easy Rawlins is out of the investigation business and as far away from crime as a black man can be in 1960s Los Angeles. But living around desperate men means life gets complicated sometimes. When an old friend gets in enough trouble to ask for Easy's help, he finds he can't refuse. Bad Boy Brawly Brown is the masterful crime novel that Walter Mosley's legions of fans have been waiting for. This book marks the return of a master at the top of his form.

    Story
    What would have made Bad Boy Brawly Brown better?

    The should have been depth of characters and story line. Since the story line and characters were not fully developed it seemed very unrealistic that he would put himself, family, friends and job for a friend's stepson that he didn't have all that strong of a connection. Payment for almost dying, breaking the law, witnessing several murders and hurting both men and women is a dinner.


    What could Walter Mosley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The characters were unrealistic and superficial. Women are portrayed as vixens and objects. Left me wondering what kind of women influenced the author. As an African American woman who grew up in Los Angeles, I thought I could make some connection with the characters. Unfortunately, I felt no connection to the characters. By the end, I didn't really care what happened to Brawly.


    What about M. E. Willis’s performance did you like?

    Narrator did an excellent job reading this novel.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bad Boy Brawly Brown?

    Throughout this book, the author refers to Mouse who is assumed dead. He never surfaces but is constantly mentioned and never seems to really add to the plot. Further development of this part should have been made.
