Publisher's Summary

The welcome return of Leonid McGill, Walter Mosley's NYC-based private eye, his East Coast foil to his immortal LA-based detective Easy Rawlins. As the Boston Globe raved, "A poignantly real character, [McGill is] not only the newest of the great fictional detectives, but also an incisive and insightful commentator on the American scene."

In the fifth Leonid McGill novel, Leonid finds himself in an unusual pickle of trying to balance his cases with his chaotic personal life. Leonid's father is still out there somewhere, and his wife is in an uptown sanitarium trying to recover from the deep depression that led to her attempted suicide in the previous novel. His wife's condition has put a damper on his affair with Aura Ullman, his girlfriend. And his son, Twill, has been spending a lot of time out of the office with his own case, helping a young thief named Fortune and his girlfriend, Liza. 

Meanwhile Leonid is approached by an unemployed office manager named Hiram Stent to track down the whereabouts of his cousin, Celia, who is about to inherit millions of dollars from her father's side of the family. Leonid declines the case, but after his office is broken into and Hiram is found dead, he gets reeled into the underbelly of Celia's wealthy old-money family. It's up to Leonid to save who he can and incriminate the guilty - all while helping his son finish his own investigation; locating his own father; reconciling (whatever that means) with his wife and girlfriend; and attending the wedding of Gordo, his oldest friend.

Can't wait until his next book!

The narrator was good. I will be looking for some of his other readings. As always, I enjoyed Mr. Mosley's book. Sometimes I find it hard to determine what era he is writing in... This book feels a little like the 70, 80, 90 and 2000.

The change in performers won't change the quality

This is the first reading without Myron Willis. Prentice Onayemi makes up for usual hard bass voice with an airy baritone which gives a style of contemplation to Leonid McGill.

This is an awesome read and we get more insight into who McGill is by contrasting that with his father now back from the dead.

LOVED IT!

Prentice Onayemi is a linguistic god and Walter Mosley is the best story teller that I have ever encountered. The combination took me there. Constant energy with lots of suspenseful swagger...I fell in love with Leonid and Twilliam...my heros. There has to be a sequel, there are too many more stories to expose. Nice touches with descriptions of actors as well, they seemed so real. I will never forget that emotions are optional. Thank you Mr. Mosely, your newest fan!

Story Master! Love his solid cast of characters!

Want to follow the lives of his steady cast, they touch and challenge my perception of who deserves love. Turns out we all do and those who show it have the least - even more. Bravo!!

The voices of Bug, and my hero Hush were all wrong. Bring back the previous narrator please.

I just love Leonid!

I love getting wrapped up in the characters and their messy lives! I just don't care for this narrator's rhythm and syncopation, he reminds me Captain James Kirk.

Overall a decent book

One thing I appreciate about Mr. Mosley's book is his humor even in the midst of danger. The plot was good and allowed me to visit a world that is very relevant (unfortunately) in our current societal times. I gave a three for the performance for a couple of reasons: 1. Aside from LT, the majority of the other characters seemed to have delayed speech as if the narrator was concentrating too hard to alter voices - this took away from the story; 2. The varied voices were too difficult to distinguish. There were a couple times where LT and one of females sounded too much alike. This too took away from the story.

Walter Mosley and his Words

New Narrator? No worries the narrator was amazing.. I have read/listened to all of the books in this series and most from the other dective series and I can honestly I am in love with LT and his creator.
