Fear of the Dark

Walter Mosley: Fear of the Dark (UK 2008)

From the Publisher:
The third in the Fearless Jones series from the author of the Easy Rawlins crime thrillers.
Fearless Jones and Paris Minton return in a high-velocity thriller about family, betrayal, and revenge. 'I'm in trouble, Paris.' Paris Minton has heard these words before. They mean only one thing: that his neck is on the line too. So when they are uttered by his lowlife cousin Ulysses S. Grant, Paris keeps the door to his bookshop firmly closed. With family like Ulysses - 'Useless' to everyone except his mother - who needs enemies? But trouble always finds an open window, and before long Paris is paying a call on his long-time friend and bodyguard, Fearless Jones. Criss-crossing the complicated landscape of 1950s Los Angeles, where a wrong look can get a black man killed, Paris and Fearless find desperate women, secret lives, and more than one dead body along the way. Walter Mosley serves up another taut mystery plot humming with brilliant characterisations, sharp dialogue and dark humour - a combination as fresh and zesty as ever. This is the third book in the series that began with Fearless Jones and Fear Itself. It is Mosley's favourite fictional territory, played with a lighter touch.

Fear of the Dark

Walter Mosley: Fear of the Dark (USA 2007)

From the Publisher:
When his cousin Ulysses S. Grant IV comes knocking, Paris Minton would rather keep the door shut, because "Useless" is a snake who brings bad luck wherever he goes. But trouble always finds an open window, and soon there's a man murdered on his bookshop floor, evidence of blackmail is discovered, and Useless has vanished. To get out of this mess, Paris turns to his solid-hearted but quick-fisted friend Fearless Jones. Traversing the complex landscape of 1950s Los Angeles, where a wrong look can get a black man killed, Paris and Fearless find deperate women, secret lives--and more than one dead body.

Fear of the Dark

Walter Mosley: Fear of the Dark (USA 2006)

From the Publisher:
Fearless Jones and Paris Minton, stars of the bestsellers Fearless Jones and Fear Itself, return in a high-velocity, larger-than-life thriller about family, betrayal, and revenge.

"I'm in trouble, Paris."
Paris Minton has heard these words before. They mean only one thing: that his neck is on the line too. So when they are uttered by his lowlife cousin Ulysses S. Grant, Paris keeps the door firmly closed. With family like Ulysses-Useless to everyone except his mother-who needs enemies?

But trouble always finds an open window, and when Useless's mother, Three Hearts, shows up from Louisiana to look for her son, Paris has no choice but to track down his wayward cousin.

Finding a con artist like Useless is easier said than done. But with the aid of his ear-to-the-ground friend Fearless Jones, Paris gets a hint that Useless may have expanded his range of enterprise to include blackmail. Now he has disappeared, and Paris's mission is to discover whether he is hiding from his vengeful victims-or already dead.

Traversing the complicated landscape of 1950s Los Angeles, where a wrong look can get a black man killed, Paris and Fearless find desperate women, secret lives, and more than one dead body along the way. Fear of the Dark is filled with the sheer-nerve plotting and brilliant characterizations that prompted The Nation to credit Walter Mosley for "the finest detective oeuvre in American literature."
