Terrific Purchase

This was a great value for the money. A must for a 'Walter Mosley' fan.

Another good Easy Rawlins Book

This is another in the series of "Easy Rawlins" books. Each one is different, but so far good.

A great introduction...

This was my first Mosley/Easy Rawlins mystery and I enjoyed it immensely. It had depth of character and interesting plot twists and turns. I also liked the fact that it was a story about African Americans in 1956 Los Angeles and it didn't rely on the 'N' word for shock value (unlike Ellroy and a few others). I think it was a great introduction to the series.

Mr. Mosley's best work.

"White Butterfly" is in my opinion Mr. Mosley's best work. This is from a devoted fan of his writing. I've read nearly everything he's written and this work stands out for its intrigue, suspense, character development and its microcosmic journey into the harsh realities of American's fixation on race.Intelligent, subtle treatment of the tension which can exist given America's juxtaposition of race, sex, and murder on the life of strong black man struggling with his desire to live the American Dream not the American nightmare- even though there are dream ghosts and phanthoms everywhere. Great, classical work.

While not the best Mosley story, this is still a must read!!

Whether you're a fan of Mysteries, good fiction, or Walter Mosley, you should read this book. Overflowing with true-to-life, believable characters, you'll wish the book was twice as long. Gripping, imaginative, thrilling, compelling and mournful. A surprise ending. Definitely a MUST READ
