Walter Mosley is back with a whole new character to love ... As gorgeous a novel as anything he's ever written. And with Joe King Oliver I'm betting, and hoping, he's given us a character we haven't see the last of. * Washington Post *Gritty ... The plot soars ... Few mystery writers can examine issues of race--how it divides and binds people--as clearly and unflinchingly as Walter Mosley. * Associated Press *Great stuff ... The vibrant characters and pulsating dialogue are primo Mosley. * New York Times Book Review *This gifted raconteur of the African American experience has produced an absorbing noir beauty of a tale * WASHINGTON POST *
