    Easy Rawlins has just woken up from a two month long semi-coma and he’s immediately tasked to track down a missing young man for his pal, Ray Alexander aka Mouse. Evander “Little Green” Noon was last seen on Sunset Strip, the Los Angeles home of the beatnik’s unwashed cousin, the hippie. Transitioning to barely mobile for Easy isn’t as smooth as Sunday morning, and he needs something to keep him on his feet, so he starts drinking a voodoo elixir called Gator’s Blood.Rawlins is a blac [...]

    At the end of his last outing, 2007's Blonde Faith, Easy Rawlins went flying off a cliff in his car, presumably plunging to his death on the rocks below. Happily, that proved not to be the case. After everyone else had given up hope, Easy's best friend, Raymond, "Mouse" Alexander, comes struggling back up to the highway, bearing Easy's broken body on his shoulders. Easy remains in a semi-coma for some time, and when he finally awakens, he's really not sure whether he's dead or alive.As one might [...]

    Hurray, Easy Rawlins is back! Mosley’s noirish series featuring this black private detective in the 50’s and early 60’s had appeared to reach the end of the line in 2007. Mosley started a lovely new series on private detective Leonid McGill set in contemporary New York City (4 at this writing). But he couldn’t keep Rawlins out of his imagination, and he resurrects him for this satisfying tale set in L.A. in 1967.Rawlins wakes from a long coma following a car wreck, and learns that his bo [...]

    Not even death comes easy for Easy Rawlins, a black private eye in 1960's California. It's been three months since his car went over a cliff and he was presumed dead. (Blonde Faith: An Easy Rawlins Novel) If it wasn't for the determination of his friend, Mouse, Easy would have died. Mouse was more likely to be cause of men dying than their being saved, but he would not give up on Easy. Mouse scoured the cliff side looking for his friend. He finally found Easy's near lifeless body and carried Eas [...]

    Wow! It is so great to have another Easy Rawlins mystery in my hands. I never thought I'd see him again. I don't think there's another character as good, as decent, as fully and vividly imagined as Easy Rawlins in all of American crime fiction and his apparent death at the end of the previous novel was a crime in itself. As this book opens, Easy is just coming out of a near-death coma and feeling pretty horrible. He's feeling all the aches and pains of his 47 years and of the car crash that near [...]

    Walter Mosley is as good as he has always been. The man knows how to craft a mystery. If you aren't a fan, you certainly should be. A Walter Mosley mystery is going to be interesting and move swiftly. The good thing about the Easy Rawlins' books are the independence of each of them. You don't have to start with any particular book, they all stand alone greatly. Mosley does a great job with keeping the characters familiar, by use of refreshing passages throughout the book. He also has a penchant [...]

    Easy Rawlings is back after surviving what would have been a fatal accident for most men in the last book in the series, Blonde Faith. It's 1967 in Watts, Los Angeles. For someone who not have read previous books in the series - and I haven't read them all - it can be hard to understand the character. He is a WWII veteran who is a private detective at a time when there weren't many black private detectives. He is a violent man in a violent world and a loving man in a loving world. Moseley's work [...]

    A disappointment, though an honorable one. I love Walter Mosley as a human being, as a political writer, as a cultural force. How many other crime novelists are trying to, say, disprove the Moynihan Report in their series? But aside from the usual convoluted plot resolution, this book doesn't feel in any way like 1967. I'm sorry, it just doesn't. There are the usual set pieces where Easy Rawlins has run-ins with racist cops and authority figures, and this time The People stand up for him, so we [...]

    Although I read the first book in this series, Devil in a Blue Dress, a few years ago, I have read none of the others. This one, Little Green, is the series’ twelfth book. The first book takes place not long after World War 2. Easy’s an African-American combat veteran from Louisiana who relocates to L.A His expectations are basic, but life is not easy, despite his name. Besides providing the entertainment of a mystery novel, that’s Mr. Mosley’s point. Little Green takes place in 1967. Ea [...]

    This was an audio read for me and were it not I would have gone through a pack of yellow pens highlighting my favorite passages, which probably amounted to the entire book. Little Green is an Easy Rawlins mystery by Walter Mosley. Mosley's writing is beyond beautiful. Every word is perfect and the mystery here is why I haven't read more of his books. This is actually something I wonder every time I read one. I believe he is one of our greatest writers and this was a perfect example of why. It is [...]

    1967, summer, Los Angeles, free love and drugs…and dangerIt’s the summer of love in the city of Los Angeles. The Watts riots are still fresh in everyone’s memories. Easy Rawlins has just escaped a close brush with death but when a friend from the underworld asks him to find a missing boy he begins to search. Easy is in his late forties and a World War II vet. He’s one of the few African American private eyes working in the city. When he encounters the growing hippie subculture he feels o [...]

    I did not realize how much I missed Easy Rawlins and his motley crew until I started reading the spellbinding first page of this well-plotted novel of gritty action and emotional fallout of secrets and bad decisions. The book opens with Easy waking from a coma caused by a bad accident in a dream-like state physically weak but knowing that he needs to keep moving forward if he is to survive. Mosley’s skill with characterization shines through as whom else but Raymond “Mouse” Alexander would [...]

    Ross MacDonald when asked about his Lew Archer novels said he basically rewrote the same story eighteen times. Well OK, but it was a hell of story, worth the retelling. Walter Mosley has written thirteen Easy Rawlins mysteries, three Fearless Jones mysteries, five Leonard McGill mysteries and three Socrates Fortlow mysteries. (disclaimer - That is to the best of my and 's knowledge as of today.) And, I swear these stories have gotten a kinda familiar ring to them. So about half way through with [...]

    Easy has risen from the dead. Last time we saw him he was going off a cliff into the ocean and it appeared the series was over. He was declared dead since the police couldn't find a body. Mouse found his body hidden on a shelf in a cliff, brings him home, and he's nursed back to while being in a coma. No sooner does he wake up than Mouse asks him for a favor. What are friends for? Easy is not too steady on his feet and is still weak in body but not spirit, however with some homeopathic gator blo [...]

    I am a huge fan of this authors work and in particular his Easy Rawlins series. It is iconic, edgy and unique. You really get the sense that the author writes from the heart! If you are new to the series, then I would recommend to start at the beginning. As each novel had layer upon layer of depth and it fully reveals itself when you follow the series. This is a series not to be missed!Ezekiel ‘Easy’ Rawlins in back, with a whole new case, that bring a heap of trouble! The novel opens with E [...]

    When he went over a cliff in Blonde Faith, most readers thought they'd never seen Easy Rawlins again. It's been quite awhile since we last heard about Easy, so our fears were founded. Never fear, six years later, Mosley has brought Easy back to his legion of fans and he's better than ever.While we may have thought Easy was a goner, his best friend, the quick-tempered and quick thinking Mouse, knew Easy was still alive. And thanks to the wisdom of Mama Jo, he knew just where to find him. (Speakin [...]

    Gator’s Blood“Little Green” by Walter Mosley is the 12th installment in the Easy Rawlins Mysteries. This was the first time I ever read a Walter Mosley novel, so in the beginning of this novel I soon discovered that there must have been quite a cliffhanger from the previous novel, “Blonde Faith.” Nevertheless, I was able to understand what had happened in the previous novel - that Easy was left for dead after running his car off of a cliff.Easy is soon found fighting for his life and i [...]

    Easy Rawlins is back and he's better than ever!The black detective from LA who battles racism and crime has been a personal favorite of mine for over twenty years. Not only is Easy the perfect role model, a combination of tough guy, philosopher, neighborhood guardian, racial champion, and poet of black America's forgotten history, but his adventures are always filled with memorable dialogue and an unforgettable supporting cast. There's Raymond "Mouse" Alexander, the deadly outlaw who represents [...]

    Walter Mosley brings Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins back from the dead in “Little Green.” Six years ago, at the end of the series’ 11th novel, “Blonde Faith,” Mosley dispatched him. Much as Conan Doyle tossed Sherlock Holmes over Reichenbach Falls, Mosley drove Easy’s Pontiac off one of the Pacific Coast Highway’s treacherous cliffs. Turns out Mouse, Easy’s faithful friend and sidekick with a hair-trigger temper, literally carried him back from oblivion.Coming slowly out of a coma, E [...]

    As I read this Easy Rawlins book it dawned on me that Walter Mosley is my favorite author of all time. I used to have Robert Heinlein in that vaunted place but Walter Mosley speaks to me through his various characters especially Easy, Mouse, Feather, Jesus, Jackson Blue and the rest of the Mosley Universe based in Los Angeles. I 'spose that part of my love of the Easy Rawlins series is that it is based in Los Angeles. I was born and raised in LA so I know most of the street corners and landma [...]

    I am a Mosley fan, but have mostly read his characters Leonid McGill and Fearless Jones. Although Easy Rawlins is probably more popular, I had only read "Devi in a Blue Dress" which I believe is the first book in the Rawlins series. I now plan the read the other 10 leading up to Little Green. Good stuff.

    Private investigator barely misses being killed. He investigates the hippie and drug culture of the 1960s Sunset Strip. He is looking for a young black man known as "Little Green."

    Returning to the world of Easy Rawlins after a few years hiatus is such a pleasure. Mr. Mosley's character creation tingles with felt life and subtle insight. He is gifted and to be respected. (While I can read the words "Easy Rawlins" without automatically seeing Denziel, I am afraid the mention of Mouse comes with a picture of Don Cheadle in my head. That's not bad though).

    Recently I decided to spend the weekend reading Jay Caspian Kang's 2012 novel The Dead Do Not Improve and Walter Mosley's 2013 Little Green which is the twelfth addition to his Easy Rawlins series. I chose Kang's novel because I was intrigued by the title; I chose the latter because a favorite author of mine, Roberto Bolaño, wrote praisingly about the series on the dustjacket and because my old friend Joe Distretti called it a good read that "keeps your interest throughout." He was right. They [...]

    Fascinating story built around recovery from a near fatal accident, pain meds, and mystery solving. Chap 29: Sleep had him in its dark fist like some precious possession clutched to a dead pharaoh's chest. Chap 33: Seeing the understated French CEO I understood what my old friend and I were doing - or, more accurately, what Jackson was doing. The whole act, from half lotus to his honest questions, was a holding pattern until his boss arrived. Jackson was born to be another man in another country [...]

    finding out that Walter Mosely has written a new Easy Rawlins book is like anticipating meeting up with an dear, but deadly, friend. Little Green did not disappoint; Mosely, after 11 years, was able to get right into Easy Rawlins' character and world and i was right there with him. Easy wakes up after having been declared dead and then being in a coma. of course, that doesn't mean he's going to be laying around trying to get well. as soon as he's on his feet he's asked by his friend Mouse to fin [...]

    Reading Little Green was like visiting and old friend. Many years ago I picked up Devil in a Blue Dress because I thought it was a great title. I loved the book and have read every new Easy Rawlins mystery since. It looked like the series was over when Easy apparently died in Blond Faith. But in Little Green, we find that rumors of his death have been greatly exagerated. Times have changed in LA. The earlier books were set in the late 1940’s and 1950’s when racism and segregation made life d [...]

    I knew about this book a few years back and was elated that Mosely decided to resurrect Easy Rawlins. I've read several of his books and these mysteries are his best work hands down. There is something that is so familiar and relatable about Easy Rawlins that you easily fall into this novel. It makes you want to pick up the very next installment. I do keep thinking that Mosely flirts with the supernatural or sci-fi when he continues to develop the storyline and his relationship with Mama Joe. Wh [...]
