This, the third of Mosley's McGill mysteries, isn't his best work (and I'm not even comparing this to Easy Rawlins like COUNTLESS other readers still do)...in my opinion it's his 2nd book "Known To Evil" that stands the strongest. This one reads like a weekly TV series entry and there is no huge plot twist or involving mystery. With Mosley, there never is...he's no Jeffrey Deaver...but it's his beautiful prose and character depth that always shines and it does here. The best thread running through this book is the subplot "favor" that McGill is doing for his "Uncle" and the revelation it leads to, along with Leonid's new take on his hatred for his father. This one is a great character study for Leonid, but not a superb mystery. Loyal fans (like myself) will love it, newcomers may sulk.
