Easy's investigation brings him to Faith Laneer, a blonde woman with a dark past. As Easy begins to put the pieces together, he realizes that Black's dissappearance has its roots in Vietnam, and that Faith might be in a world of danger.… (mere)

One characteristic of a good book is that the author makes you care about the protagonist. One reason Great Expectations is so good is that you care deeply about Pip's adventures. "Oh no", you say, "what's going to happen to Pip?" And so you read on, fully engaged in Pip's life.

So too, it would seem with Walter Mosley's character Easy Rawlins. By mere chance, I got two Easy Rawlins' books to take on vacation, and again by chance, they followed in chronological order. After I finished the second book, I just had to find the third: "oh no, what's going to happen between Easy and Bonnie?"

So, I read this book to find out. Along the way, we have all kinds of musing about race issues, the Vietnam war, the fragility of life, etc. This, like its two previous siblings, was a good read.

Wikipedia indicates this book to be the last one published in this series, so I can ask what happens next, but I won't actually know anytime in the near future, perhaps never. ( )

Good, real good. Interesting to see how people's attitudes change and become more honest towards each other as the series progresses. ( )

Review: Blonde Faith by Walter Mosley. As far as I’m concerned this book was an understatement for a detective thriller. It’s part of the “Easy Rawlins Series”, book ten no less. I either read the worst book of the series or the nine before lead up to this disaster. This was the first book I’ve read by this Author and will someday possibly choose another to read. I won’t be reading another one from this Author for awhile t and then only to give the Author another chance.

The book was uninteresting written, unorganized, and unjustified names for the characters. The names seemed like I was reading from a Mafia list. I’ll start out with the detective, Easy Rawlins children who were Feather, EttaMae, Jesus (known as Juice), Leafa, and Essie. His female companions were Faith, Bonnie, Tourmaline Goss, Benita Flagg, and Jewelle. His male companions were Christmas Blake, Mouse, Bumbles, Melvin Suggs, Pericles Tarr (known as Perri), Sammy Sansoam, Jackson, Joguye Cham, Porky, Frenchie and Martel. Other children of friends were Bibi, Chevette, Easter Dawn, and LaTerry Klegg. There were also a few more unsavory names that weren’t well known to the detective.

The plot was the detective investigating a missing girl, and a missing acquaintances of his, named Christmas Blake. These were two separate cases. He had no trouble finding the missing girl and the circumstances surrounding that case. That mystery was solved quickly within the story. Then the weird adventures concerning the other case was so unorganized, confusing, and written in circles. There wasn’t even much criminal action happening. Yes, there were three murders but not surprisingly overwhelming. I thought the story was a drag. No way around the truth, it was extremely uneventful.
