Description
Los Angeles, 1948. Easy Rawlins is a black war veteran just fired from his job at a defense plant. He is drinking in a friend's bar, wondering how he'll meet his mortgage, when a white man in a linen suit walks in, offering good money if Easy will simply locate Miss Daphne Money, a blonde beauty known to frequent black jazz clubs. Named one of the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association, Devil in a Blue Dress is the first book in Walter Mosley's atmospheric Easy Rawlins series, and this edition features an original Easy Rawlins short story, "Crimson Stain."

"[The book] honors the hard-boiled tradition of Hammett/Chandler/Cain in its story line and attitude, but Mosley takes us down some mean streets that his spiritual predecessors never could have.... A fast-moving, entertaining story written with impressive style."LATimes
