Actor Michael Boatman's second appearance as narrator of a Mosley novel is cause for celebration. It's San Francisco during the "summer of love," and Easy Rawlins is in deep trouble, as his beloved daughter needs an expensive medical procedure to save her life. Boatman shines as he adds both tension and pathos when Easy and his lifelong friend, Mouse, contemplate robbing an armored car to save the girl's life. Evocative music bookends each disc as Boatman portrays one unforgettable character after another. Take special note of the sneering tone in the voice of Easy's employer, ace detective Robert, and the sensuous subtext Boatman brings to femme fatale Cinnamon Cargill.
