Easy Rawlins returns to solve a mystery set amid the LA riots of 1965

Mosley's 8th Easy Rawlins mystery is set in Los Angeles during the Watts riots of 1965. Mosley combines a highly involving mystery with a no holds barred commentary about race relations in the white-run America of the 1960s. This is a very powerful read and believed by many critics to be Mosley's strongest in the series.
