In New York, if you have a problem no one else can solve, you call Leonid McGill. Ex-boxer, hard drinker, in a business that trades in cash and favours, McGill's an old-school PI working a city that's got fancy all around him.
When McGill is approached by a small-time office manager, he declines the case. He has better things to do than track down the man's long-lost cousin, who is about to inherit millions. But then McGill's office is broken into, and his potential client is found dead.
Soon McGill finds himself drawn into the underbelly of an establishment family and a Pandora's box of secrets and lies.Taking you from the moneyed haunts of uptown to the shady corners of downtown, Mosley is the Chandler of Obama's America and one of the finest crime writers in the world.

Just another day at the office....
Probably not but I will certainly look forward to the next Leonid McGill.
I did more or less with few breaks
Leonid M'Gill ain't Easy Rawlings/Hush ain't Mouse
Sometimes when we were kids and got presents that were not quite the right present, we might have felt annoyed, cranky, or riotous.. For a few tracks I felt mopish because I wanted Easy and Mouse and cars and Southern California. However my disappointment lasted only a few chapters. The story started simmering and then boiling for me quite quickly when a variety of seemingly unconnected characters came together and I thought okay I'll hang around for the ending. I was not disappointed. The character of Hush was well drawn. Some of the supporting acts esp Hiram Stent were memorable for the right reasons. The depressed wife, the receptionist, the leggy mistresses did border on the unbelievable and were a bit tedious. The prodigal father was an interesting idea
Walter Mosley is one of the best writers of the detective genre. Some great dialogue, and if nothing else in a short passage nails the importance of fiction.
