Publisher's Summary

The beloved Ezekiel Rawlins now has a steady job as senior head custodian of Sojourner Truth High School, a nice house with a garden, a loving woman, and children. He counts the blessings of leading a law-abiding life, but is "nowhere near happy," and though he tries to leave the street life behind, he still finds himself trading favors and investigating cases of arson, murder, and missing people. People who can't depend on the law to solve their problems seek out Easy.

Critic Reviews

"Mosley's sense of time and place are near-perfect, as usual and M.E. Willis' first-person narration nicely conveys our streetwise and world-weary hero. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

Before LIttle Scarlet and Cinnamon Kiss

This is a great collection of EZ short stories by Walter Mosley. They come between A Little Yellow Dog and Little Scarlet, and fill in a lot of the gaps between those two novels. Really enjoyable. ME Willis is a delight. Characters like Mama Joe, bring added depth. Gone Fishing was written before these stories, and there's references to what happened.

If you want a novel, then you won't be satisfied with short stories, but I really enjoyed seeing how Mosley works with the short story form and also the way the stories link together.

What can I say

This is another great book. Easy is so easy to love. He makes the most of the world and can love and forgive.

Good read, but not may fav

The guy who read the story was way too jivy for my taste. He was very over-the-top and overly exaggerated accents and dialects to the point of ridiculousness.

I didn't realize until 1/2 way through that this was a collection of shorts. This made the first few hours very irritating because of the repetitiveness, however once I realize what was going on it was fine. I was hoping all of the shorts connected somehow in the end, but no luck there. Overall, the story was great. To me it was a glimpse into Easy's life between the 5 year gaps of the earlier books.

Narrator was sub-par

Who chose this narrator? He had a very hard time with the voices of female characters and he bludgeon the voice of Mouse.

Excellent compilation of short stories

6 stories about Easy and his adventures. No spoilers in this review. In my opinion one of the beat of the series when it comes to character development. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Have a nice day.

Easy. . .

I'm hooked on the Easy Rawlins mysteries! What intrigues me the most is the ongoing pursuit to balance his life! Easy has become a friend.
