A Little Yellow Dog: An Easy Rawlins Mystery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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....

Review:

"Easy Rawlins is back, which is great news....Mosley's thrillers, always thrilling, are salutary as well." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

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

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Review:

"[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

Review:

"God bless the day that Walter Mosley created Easy Rawlins!" Carolyn See, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"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

Review:

"Entertaining....Like Chandler and Ellroy, Mosley's wry wit holds nothing sacred." Detroit Free Press

Review:

"[Mosley] writes with a pure, true voice. A Little Yellow Dog marks another winner for its remarkable author." Houston Chronicle

Review:

"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

Review:

"How does Walter Mosley do it?....Each Easy Rawlins mystery is better than its predecessor — richer, more nuanced and, in this case, funnier." Newsday

Review:

"Mosley just writes so well — so crisply, so smoothly....His view of human nature is bone-solid realistic, no illusions." Philadelphia Inquirer
