eBook Special Feature: Includes two original articles The Writing of Fearless Jones and Black to the Future both penned by Walter Mosley and a chapter excerpt of Walter Mosley's latest novel, FEAR ITSELF. asy Rawlins is out of the investigation business and as far away from crime as a black man can be in 1960s Los Angeles. But living around desperate men means life gets complicated sometimes. When an old friend gets in enough trouble to ask for Easy's help, he finds he can't refuse. Young Brawly Brown has traded in his family for The Clan of the First Men, a group rejecting white leadership, history, and laws - they're dangerous. Brown's mom, Alva, needs to know her baby's okay, and Easy promises to find him. His first day on the case Easy gets harassed by the cops and comes face to face with a corpse. Before he knows it he is on a short list of murder suspects and in the middle of a frenzied police raid on a Clan of the First Men rally. The only thing he discovers about Brawly Brown is that he's the kind of trouble most folks try to avoid. It takes everything Easy has just to stay alive as he explores a world filled with promises, betrayals, and predators like he never imagined. Bad Boy Brawly Brown is the masterful crime novel that Walter Mosley's legions of fans have been waiting for. Written with the voice and vision that have made Walter Mosley one of the most important writers in America, this book marks the return of a master at the top of his form.

A Los Angeles ghetto is the scene where Easy Rawlins is asked by his friend John to find and help his son Brawly. Easy has a lady friend and two children who are real and interesting. I enjoy this series, for Mosley captures the language, food, and culture of ghetto life without the jive talk that is often seen in movies.
