Reviews

101 Best Mystery Books of all Time --Parade
"Mosley is a literary artist as well as a master of mystery." --The New York Times
"Richly atmospheric...Devil in a Blue Dress honors the hard-boiled tradition of Hamett/Chandler/Cain in its story line line and attitude, but Mosley takes us down some mean streets that his spiritual predecessors never could have...A fast moving, entertaining story written with impressive style. This kind of book that leaves you yearning to read more about Easy Rawlins' adventures."-- "Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"The social commentary is sly, the dialogue is fabulous, the noir atmosphere so real you could touch it. A first novel? That what they say. Amazing. Smashing."-- "Cosmopolitan"
Praise for Walter Mosley and Easy Rawlins

"Wonderful page-turning excitement....Like Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky, and others, Mosley has been reconstructing the hard-boiled tradition from the bottom up....Easy Rawlins moves through mean streets even Marlowe wouldn't walk."-- "San Francisco Chronicle"
"Crackles with the suspense and wit of vintage Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, but its keen commentaries on racial issues make it a vital piece of modern fiction...Mosley has earned a place among contemporary masters of crime fiction."-- "Boston Sunday Herald"
