Walter Mosley – The Long Fall

Walter Mosley is the best-selling crime novelist perhaps best known for his noir detective stories featuring the black private detective, Easy Rawlins. One book in this series, Devil in a Blue Dress, was made into a movie starring Denzel Washington. Mosley’s newest book, while still a detective story, is the beginning of a new series and is our first introduction to the character Leonid McGill, an ex-boxer, hard drinker and old-school P.I. In The Long Fall: The First Leonid McGill Mystery, McGill is turning over a new leaf, and has “decided to go from crooked to slightly bent.”
