* WINNER OF THE CWA JOHN CREASEY AWARD** THE FIRST NOVEL BY INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED WRITER WALTER MOSLEY *'A damn good read'VAL MCDERMID'A brilliant novel'JONATHAN KELLERMAN'A first novel of astonishing virtuosity' SUNDAY TIMESI need to find somebody and I might need a little help looking...

The summer of '48 in the city of Angels and there's heat on the streets when Daphne Monet hits the sidewalk.

Heat when she disappears with a trunkload of somebody else's cash. Easy Rawlins is a war veteran just fired from his job.

Drinking in a friend's bar, he wonders how to meet his mortgage when a white man in a linen suit walks in, offering good money if Easy will locate Miss Monet, a blonde with a reputation.

It's a simple decision, but for one thing. Nobody warned him - better the devil you know... 'Magnificent... a wonderful new talent' Financial Times'Sharp and meatily convincing' The Times'Perfectly balanced concoctions of lust, violence, politics and race' Sunday Times
