Blonde Faith

By Walter Mosley (Audiobook, 2007)
Easy Rawlins, L.A.'s most reluctant detective, comes home one day to find Easter, the daughter of his friend, Christmas Black left on his doorstep. Easy knows that this could only mean that the ex-marine Black is probably dead, or will be soon.

Easter's appearance is only the beginning, as Easy is immersed in a sea of problems. The love of his life is marrying another man and his friend Mouse is wanted for the murder of a father of 12. As he's searching for a clue to Christmas Black's whereabouts, two suspicious MPs hire him to find his friend Black on behalf of the U.S. Army.

Easy's investigation brings him to a blonde woman, Faith Laneer, whose past is as dark as her beauty is bright. As Easy begins to put the pieces together, he realizes that Black's dissappearance has its roots in Vietnam, and that Faith might be in a world of danger.

  • Mosely uses first-person narration for his Rawlins stories, so readers can get deeply inside the psyche of his unusual and complex main character. In providing Easy's audio voice, Boatman strikes not one false note, and his differentiation of the other characters is solid and equally convincing. (KLIATT).

  • Praise for Little Scarlett audiobook: "Plot, pace, description, dialogue. Take your pick. Mosley's in an elite class of authors." (Syndicated in The Palm Beach Post, The San Jose Mercury News & The St. Paul Pioneer Press).

  • Praise for Cinnamon Kiss (audiobook): "Whether it's hurrincanes or gas prices or chaos in general, all is never lost if Walter Mosley has a new Easy Rowlins book out...The audio bonus is actor Michael Boatman as the reader..." (Palm Beach Post).

  • "Snappy dialogue and brisk pacing mark this terrifically entertaining 10th installment, but it's Easy's introspection....that elevates this from crime fiction to high art." (On Cinnamon Kiss)
