Synopsis

Little Scarlet by Walter Mosley

Brilliant new Easy Rawlins thriller from master crime writer Walter Mosley.


Just after devastating riots tear through Los Angeles in 1965 the police turn up at Easy Rawlin's doorstep to ask for his help.

A man was wrenched from his car by a mob at the riots' peak and escaped into a nearby apartment building. Soon afterward, a redheaded woman known as Little Scarlet was found dead in that building - and the fleeing man is the obvious suspect. But the man has vanished. The police fear that their presence in certain neighbourhoods could spark a new inferno, so they ask Easy Rawlins to see what he can discover. The vanished man is the key, but he is only the beginning.

Rawlins's hunt for the killer reveals a new city emerging from the ashes. Mosley's lean and musical vernacular captures the heat and the rhythm of Los Angeles' heart, where danger is the common currency of everyday life.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
