Mosley sets his new series in New York City, featuring a tough former boxer, now a private detective. With complex characters, a sinuous plot and evocative locations - all you expect from Mosely. — Louise Jones

April 2009 Indie Next List

“Walter Mosley introduces a new character, Leonid McGill, a private detective who is attempting to do penance. But the true star of Mosley's novel is New York City, as the author brings alive all the glitter, corruption, diversity, and substance that comprise our greatest city.”
— Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


The widely praised New York Times bestseller, and Mosley's first new series since his acclaimed Easy Rawlins novels...

Leonid McGill is an ex-boxer and a hard drinker looking to clean up his act. He's an old-school P.I. working a New York City that's gotten a little too fancy all around him. But it's still full of dirty secrets, and as McGill unearths them, his commitment to the straight and narrow is going to be tested to the limit...
