Easy Rawlins's old friend John shows up at his door one morning, looking for the kind of help only Easy can provide. John's stepson, Brawly Brown, has left home, and John has reason to think this well-meaning boy is caught up in a situation that's more dangerous than he knows. It doesn't take Easy long to find Brawly and learn that John is right - but getting Brawly to see things that way is another matter.
Brawly has joined a political group that he believes will make life better for the residents of Compton. With years of seeing how things really work, Easy recognizes that young Brawly is just a pawn in a battle between forces as old and hard as the city's streets.
Through it all, Easy's old friend Mouse is there to help him - even though the last time Easy saw Mouse he was lying still and cold, and Easy is certain he's dead. Still, the memory and reputation of Mouse accompany Easy everywhere, earning him second looks from beautiful women and respect from hardened men. And in a world where logic is only a small element in life-or-death calculations, it is something Mouse once said to him that could help Easy save Brawly's life - without costing him his own.

A Los Angeles ghetto is the scene where Easy Rawlins is asked by his friend John to find and help his son Brawly. Easy has a lady friend and two children who are real and interesting. I enjoy this series, for Mosley captures the language, food, and culture of ghetto life without the jive talk that is often seen in movies.
