    Leonid McGill-the protagonist introduced in The Long Fall, the book that returned Walter Mosley to bestseller lists nationwide - is still fighting to stick to his reformed ways while the world around him pulls him in every other direction. He has split up with his girlfriend, Aura, because his new self won't let him leave his wife - but then Aura's new boyfriend starts angling to get Leonid kicked out of his prime, top-of-the­skyscraper office space.

    Overall

    I am a big Mosley fan (read, not heard). However, with regard to the audio: First, get a grip on lousy accents - if you cannot do them (hello...NY at the front of the list, since all the main characters are NY'ers you would think we could have had a basic effort to emulate. Not so). Most importantly with this book - the accents are abominable and un-ingnorable!!! The reader does not seem to understand McGill (but many of us won't...that is certainly intended) I am enjoying this book. I am not enjoying the reader, but Walter Mosley is always worthwhile, so if you only- listen do so, if you read, please read his books.
