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!

Excellent...

Mosley has outdone himself AGAIN, LT is one bad dude! Hell of a novel, and the narrator, Prentice Onayemi, is number one. One question, will LT & Easy ever meet in a Mosley novel?

Love the book; love the series

I think there is something very special here. I love the writing. Leonid is an interesting hero and I can’t put these books down easily. His life is messy and it’s very interesting how he handles all of it the best he can. I read the first book many years ago via the library rental. I rediscovered one of the next books in the series here on Audible and now I’m seeing the series anew. I hope you give this book a chance. I’m glad I did.
