More About Blonde Faith by Walter Mosley; Michael Boatman
 
 
 
Overview
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.

Mosley's Easy Rawlins books were always about acquiring property, which was the American dream in post–WWII Los Angeles. But lately Rawlins's expanding family has taken center stage and death has darkened the landscape. “We born dyin.' If it wasn't for death, we'd never draw a breath,” says Michael Boatman as an old man who knew Rawlins's grandfather back in Texas. That theme is echoed by several other characters, especially Etta, the wife of Raymond “Mouse” Alexander, Easy's childhood friend and a born killer who has disappeared. Boatman, a veteran narrator of numerous Mosley novels, has a quiet and natural style that perfectly catches the voices of Etta, Rawlins's lover Bonnie and especially Rawlins himself. Boatman's beautifully controlled performance compliments all the rich shadings Mosley gives his private eye, now 18 years older than the optimistic young soldier introduced in Devil in a Blue Dress, who's feeling depressed and adrift in the riot-filled L.A. of 1967. An extremely frightening ending supports Mosley's claim that Easy's 10th mystery may be his last. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 6). (Oct.)
