it was amazing

I'm grateful to discover Mosley. Saw "Devil in a Blue Dress" but did not read the book. I just finished a Lawrence Block Matthew Scudder book, so this noir crime story fit my hand beautifully. And I'm delighted to have a whole bunch of books by Mosley still to read. Topnotch entertainment, with rich, troubled characters and a couple fistfuls of rage, dark city streets and danger in the corners. Edgy prose that carves the characters masterfully, with dialogue that puts the voices in the room so that their agitation is your anxiety. Excellent.
