White Butterfly: An Easy Rawlins Mystery | [Walter Mosley]

White Butterfly: An Easy Rawlins Mystery

The police don't show up on Easy Rawlins's doorstep until the third girl dies. It's Los Angeles, 1956, and it takes more than one murdered black girl before the cops get interested. Now they need Easy. As he says: "I was worth a precinct full of detectives when the cops needed the word in the ghetto." But Easy turns them down. He's married now, a father -- and his detective days are over.

Publisher's Summary

The police don't show up on Easy Rawlins's doorstep until the third girl dies. It's Los Angeles, 1956, and it takes more than one murdered black girl before the cops get interested. Now they need Easy. As he says: "I was worth a precinct full of detectives when the cops needed the word in the ghetto." But Easy turns them down. He's married now, a father -- and his detective days are over. Then a white college coed dies the same brutal death, and the cops put the heat on Easy: If he doesn't help, his best friend is headed for jail. So Easy's back, walking the midnight streets of Watts and the darker, twisted avenues of a cunning killer's mind....

    "Easy is So Smooth"
    Where does White Butterfly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a fan of Walter Mosley, his stories capture the essence of the time. I read this book out of sequence, but Mosley is an expert at character development. I felt like I was riding in the car with Easy. At times I could feel the heat of Los Angeles and smell the odors of the city.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The love hate relationship Easy has with LAPD gives an interesting spin on the dynamics of the hunt for the killer.


    What about Michael Boatman’s performance did you like?

    Michael Boatman's performance was right on the money.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I stayed up late two nights to listen to the whole book.

    "Another great Easy mystery"

    I started reading Walter Mosley because John Grisham mentioned the author in the Racketeer. I have found this and other Walter Mosley books about Easy Rawlings very interesting. They have provided me with new insights of a culture very different to 21st century England. I particularly like the development of the character Easy. However, my favorite is Mouse, who I probably would not want to meet in person but always provides color to the stories.
