Blood Grove (Easy Rawlins, 15)
July, 1969. Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins runs his own private detective agency. Life has been almost calm as of late, and he now lives in a nice home in the scenic hills of Brighthope with his adopted daughter Feather. Any chance of normalcy is dashed, however, when Easy is approached by Craig Killian, a Vietnam veteran suffering psychological strain who believes he murdered another man in an orange grove. Easy is skeptical of the story, but they share the trauma of the battlefield. Easy promises to investigate and help his “Brother in Blood.”
As the investigation progresses, Easy utilizes his investigative skills along with his vast resources to find answers. However, the more Easy learns, the more holes appear in Craig’s narrative. Easy also has to contend with gangsters, manipulative femme fatales, and the stifling racism of certain law enforcement officers. The case will either be closed or Easy will be sporting a toe tag.
Blood Grove is the latest book in the continuing saga of Easy Rawlins and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Author Walter Mosley continues his supremacy when it comes to crafting an absorbing mystery. The plot develops gradually and evolves into a satisfying and fun read. The case may be over, but the enthusiasm for more never wanes.
