Devil in a Blue Dress

Walter Mosley: Devil in a Blue Dress (USA 2020)

From the Publisher:
Walter Mosely's Devil in a Blue Dress was written in 1990 and set in 1948. The 30th anniversary edition gives us pause to consider what has and has not changed in terms of race in the U.S. Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins comes to the job of private detective not by choice, but necessity. In true detective and noir form, he's as tough to the world as it is to him. And that world, as in all noir fiction, is a troubled and violent environment. Mosley's Devil in a Blue Dress ranks in the canon of Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain, Jim Thompson and Dashiell Hammett.

The first novel by "master of mystery" (The New York Times) Walter Mosley, featuring Easy Rawlins, the most iconic African American detective in all of fiction. Named one of the "best 100 mystery novels of all time" by the Mystery Writers of America, this special thirtieth anniversary edition features an all new introduction from the author.

The year is 1948, the town is Los Angeles.
Easy Rawlins, a black war veteran, has just been fired from his job at a defense factory plant. Drinking in his friend's bar, he's wondering how he'll manage to make ends meet, when a white man in a linen suit approaches him and offers him good money if Easy will simply locate Miss Daphne Money, a missing blonde beauty known to frequent black jazz clubs.

Easy has no idea that by taking this job, his life is about to change forever.

"More than simply a detective novel...[Mosley is] a talented author with something vital to say about the distance between the black and white worlds, and with a dramatic way to say it" (The New York Times).

Devil in a Blue Dress

Walter Mosley: Devil in a Blue Dress (USA 1990)

From the Publisher:
Already the object of a chorus of praise (see back cover), Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley is the freshest new American crime novel in years.
The time is 1948; the town is Los Angeles; the hero is Easy Rawlins, a tough black war veteran just out of a job at a defense plant. The mortgage payment's coming due, so Easy takes on some detective work from a silkily menacing white gangster, Dewitt Albright. The assignment: find the whereabouts of blonde femme fatale Daphne Monet, a singer known to frequent black jazz joints not usually hospitable to white patrons.

Easy's quest for the bewitching Daphne takes him (and the reader) on a vivid tour of forties L.A., from the barber shops and raucous clubs of Watts, to the elegant boardrooms and residences of a white political establishment with a great deal to hide. Once found, Daphne Monet proves an easier woman to locate than to fathom. She incarnates the promise of love and the threat of violent death. With his sardonic, gleefully murderous sidekick Mouse to guide him, Easy enters the dangerously complex moral territory of race relations and necessary violence, where questions of right and wrong depend for their answers on just whose side the law is on.

Walter Mosley: Devil in a Blue Dress. A Novel. W. W. Norton, ISBN: 0393028542 (June, 1990), 219 p., $19.95.
