A Little Yellow Dog: An Easy Rawlins Mysteryby Walter Mosley
Synopses & Reviews
November 1963: Easy's settled into a steady gig as a school custodian. It's a quiet, simple existence — but a few moments of ecstasy with a sexy teacher will change all that.
When the lady vanishes, Easy's stuck with a couple of corpses, the cops on his back, and a little yellow dog who's nobody's best friend. With his not-so-simple past snapping at his heels, and with enemies old and new looking to get even, Easy must kiss his careful little life good-bye — and step closer to the edge....
"Easy Rawlins is back, which is great news....Mosley's thrillers, always thrilling, are salutary as well." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Mosley lets his plot unravel with the skill of a genre veteran, but as always, it is his ability to set Easy's personal story in the context of the historical moment that gives this series its uniqueness....A superb novel in a superb series." Bill Ott, Booklist
"The fantastically intricate plot is only average for this celebrated series. But no living novelist beats Mosley's nervy sense of what thin ice the solidest-seeming characters build their lives upon, and how terrifying it is to feel the surface crack and shiver." Kirkus Reviews
"The best book yet in this fine series. Easy Rawlins [is] one of the most distinctive voices in crime fiction." Adam Woog, The Seattle Times
"[A] well-energized and crafty volume....Walter Mosley is a literary artist as well as a master of mystery." R. W. B. Lewis, The New York Times Book Review
"God bless the day that Walter Mosley created Easy Rawlins!" Carolyn See, Washington Post Book World
"Early 1960s black Los Angeles is alive in the look and talk of the book....Easy is a cool dude struggling to stay alive and make sense of his tough and tawdry world." Boston Sunday Globe
"Entertaining....Like Chandler and Ellroy, Mosley's wry wit holds nothing sacred." Detroit Free Press
"[Mosley] writes with a pure, true voice. A Little Yellow Dog marks another winner for its remarkable author." Houston Chronicle
"A Little Yellow Dog is just as smoky and sexy as Devil In a Blue Dress....[Mosley] tells his story fast and hard, sometimes funny, sometimes lyrical." San Jose Mercury News
"How does Walter Mosley do it?....Each Easy Rawlins mystery is better than its predecessor — richer, more nuanced and, in this case, funnier." Newsday
"Mosley just writes so well — so crisply, so smoothly....His view of human nature is bone-solid realistic, no illusions." Philadelphia Inquirer
