Very good, atmospheric recreation of the Los Angeles scene at the time of the Watts riots of 1965, from the multiple perspectives of the black, white, and police communities. Also a compelling mystery with some memorable characters...and tied together with the narrative guidance of the compelling Easy Rawlins. The audiobook is masterfully read with much thought and nuance put into each character voice by actor Michael Boatman. This unabridged version kept my spouse and me enthralled for the entire (approx) 8-hour running time on multiple legs of a long auto trip.
