Devil in a Blue Dress

This is the first of Walter Mosley’s iconic Easy Rawlins series and for me it was to be the first of many in the series and the first of many of his other novels and short stories collections. Set in Los Angeles in the 1940s, the story follows Rawlins as he inadvertently finds himself becoming a detective by offering for favours. When a white man needs a black man to investigate where white men can’t go in deeply racist LA, Rawlins is soon searching for a white woman with her own deep secrets.
