We last saw African American PI Easy Rawlins fighting for his life after his car plunged over a cliff in Blonde Faith (2007). But with the help of best friend Ray “Mouse” Alexander and local shaman Mama Jo's healing drink called "Gator's Blood," Easy awakens from his coma and is back cruising the mean streets of L.A. Mouse asks Easy to find Evander “Little Green” Noon, who went clubbing on the Sunset Strip and disappeared. Easy quickly discovers that the hippie culture and racial tensions of 1967 Los Angeles are making it hard for him to get straight answers. The return of Easy Rawlins is a major event for crime fiction fans!
