There's a new dynamic duo in Mosley-land--Paris Minton, a sweet, cultured bibliophile, and Fearless Jones, a decorated WWII veteran and ex-con with an uncompromising sense of justice. When Elana Love comes into Paris's life and steals his car, his gun, and his money (after his bookstore is burned to the ground), Paris calls on Fearless for help. The two soon find themselves in the thick of danger and intrigue in 1950s Watts. Bill Andrew Quinn's performance mingles wisdom with humor. His voice oozes enough charm to melt steel, and it seethes with the controlled rage of the African-American man in his daily dealings with racists. Mosley's shrewd, incisive observations of American life provide us with much more than a mystery. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
