Walter Mosley's novels are marked by well-paced action and rich, evocative dialogue. This was true in his Easy Rawlings mysteries and is true again in FEARLESS JONES as he introduces Paris Minton and his war-hero buddy, Fearless Jones. The novel takes place shortly after WWII in Los Angeles, where Paris owns a used-book store. A beautiful woman rushes in and asks for his help, and within the next 24 hours, he has been beaten, made love to, robbed, and has had his bookstore burned down. With help from his friend Fearless, he attempts to get to the bottom of the mystery. Mosley writes in an open, engaging style that translates well to audio. Peter Francis James reads the tale well, giving each character enough distinctiveness that listeners can easily tell one from another.
