Charcoal Joe - Walter Mosley

Staff Pick

Walter Mosley brings back Easy Rawlins for another thrilling mystery in Charcoal Joe. With this being Rawlins' 14th installment, we find the once young gun growing roots, getting accustomed to his partners in a new detective agency and growing evermore vigilant of the perils of parenthood. All this while he continues his penchant for engaging the seedy side of Los Angeles, including the illustrious Charcoal Joe—an imprisoned crime boss who hires Easy to clear the name of a young Black physics doctoral candidate accused of murder. Set in 1968, steeped in the mastery of Moseley's slow-burn style, Charcoal Joe serves up a case of intrigue to ignite your summer.
