Review published on November 3, 2016.
My previous encounter with Walter Mosley involved Easy Rawlins, so this was my first meeting with Leonid McGill. At first I was a little overwhelmed trying to remember which character was which, since they were appearing so quickly. However, once I got my head together, I found this to be a wonderful read. Not having read the previous books in the series, I can confirm that the story works as a stand-alone piece. The pace was fast and there was plenty of action and suspense to keep the mind thinking. The characters were well presented and believable. I would certainly recommend this book to those who love a good action thriller, and I look forward to reading more of Leonid’s adventures. I hope some of these characters turn up again in later volumes, too. It’s a darn good read.
John McCloskey 4/4
