Another Fearless Jones story

A gripping and well written mystery/thriller set in 1950s Los Angeles.

The writer is extremely talented and I enjoyed the book very much.

This is the third book in Fearless Jones series. I am now going on to read the first one "Fearless Jones".

Excellent!!

Another great story in the Fearless Jones saga!! Walter Mosely has a knack for taking you back to an era in time that makes you long for good Jazz and good food while digesting another of his literary delights. He definitely keeps you wanting another!! Well done Mr. Mosely and a special "well done" to Mr. Boatman who brought out the characters as if they were on stage live πŸ‘ŒπŸΎ!!
Hopefully more of his works make it to the stage...they are too good for the screen 😊!!
