Read full description of the books:
An angrier than usual Easy Rawlins, in order to raise quick cash for his daughter’s medical treatment in Switzerland, agrees to work for a private-eye based in San Francisco. This is the mid-1960’s so enter -> Hippies.
He also chases down the titular flavored character who has connections to Haight-Ashbury and helps the reader think of that Neil Young song that has the word “cinnamon” in the title about every half page or so.
As in every decent Easy Rawlins book, the strength of the story rests on well-developed secondary characters, and there’s none better than Mouse, Rawlins’ dark, broody, violence-prone pal.
A digression on the nature of the sidekick!
Sidekicks offer many things:
They can lug heavy stuff around and kill giant spiders:
When they whine, they can help you appreciate that you aren’t an undersea-based hero:
You can do all sorts of neat things together:
And they cause endless amounts of grief:
So where does Mouse fit in?
First, calling him a sidekick can get you a cap popped in your face.
Second, he’s loyal to his friends, but unhinged enough to feel like you’re carrying a scorpion around in your pocket. Who’s gonna get stung? Maybe you? Mosley always presents this possibility (Mouse turns on Easy), but to my knowledge has never delivered.
Easy leans a little too much on Mouse in this average entry in a fine series. How many times can he evoke the name of Mouse to scare someone, gain access to somewhere he normally couldn’t tread or get laid by exotic dancers? Plus, Mosley loses the narrative thread once too often for this to be ranked as one of the better Easy Rawlins books.
