Devil in a Blue Dress (30th Anniversary Edition): An Easy Rawlins Novel | Walter Mosley
108 posts | 115 read | 1 reading | 87 to read
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 friends bar, hes wondering how hell 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).

This was IT. Absolutely worth any hype it gets. Is it a perfect detective novel? Nah, but that‘s mostly b/c Easy isn‘t a hard-boiled gumshoe. Not yet. He‘s just a guy who needs a job. The job? Find a missing white woman. Simple, right? Turns out there‘s more to it than meets the eye. The best part about this book is how well Mosley paints 40‘s LA society. A man like Easy exists because no one else is going to care. Easy‘s just getting started.

Fast paced with a wild cast of characters, Easy is just trying to stay out of trouble and pay his mortgage. This is a quick read with a lot of action, and mystery but not really one Mosley sets you up to solve on your own.

TW: rape, incest, cold abuse, violence

I hinted for my husband to get me a gift subscription from my local indie RJ Julia‘s for Christmas and was delighted to receive my first book today. They have you fill out a questionnaire about your reading likes and dislikes to get a feel for what you may enjoy. I have not read any of this series and am looking forward to digging in.

This book took me from wheels up to wheels down Denver to Pittsburgh. Aside from a mystery it also got into what life was like for a Black man in Los Angeles in the 40s including issues of police brutality and systemic racism that felt very current. Glad I made time to read this classic of political corruption, murder, and lust in 1948 la.

TiredLibrarian I loved the immersion in the time & place of this one. 7mo

Started summer with this classic 1st Easy Rawlins in which the ww2 veteran is asked to find a mysterious woman by an obviously dodgy villain. It takes him into the underbelly of LA where violence triggers memories of the war. A great start to a series which noir with reflection on race .I plan to keep reading.

First book in the Easy Rawlins series, didn't disappoint. I love Mosley's Leonid McGill series and now I love this one too, looking forward to next book already. My July #BookSpin. A pick!

Also finished third book in Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series, Beneath the Sugar Sky, and the second in The Singing Hills Cycle by Nghi Vo, When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain. Both great reads.

And I got a #BookSpinBingo 😏 @TheAromaOfBooks

I have read one other Walter Mosley book, but I liked the beginning of this Easy Rawlins Series. A man down on his luck gets involved with something nefarious and finds his true calling in all the danger of a task to find a woman. Things are not as they appear at first glance in this story. A great mystery.

I think I may have missed something here or maybe it‘s just that noir is not really my genre, but this story of a black detective in 1948 LA just didn‘t grab my interest. Maybe it was the moral ambiguity that did me in? Ezekiel (Easy) tried to do right most of the time, but there was a lot of back stabbing, and I really just didn‘t connect with any of the characters. The plot was a bit convoluted as well. 2.5/5⭐️

I'm halfway through Devil in a Blue Dress. I'm a latecomer to the Easy Rawlins series. Crime Fiction readers should definitely check out this series. Easy Rawlins is a compelling character and Mosley provides a great atmosphere of post WW2 Los Angeles in the black community. Good read so far. Full review to come.

Nute My Dad and I use to listen to Easy Rawlins books-on-tape when we would drive on long road trips together. It‘s one of my most treasured memories. My Dad really enjoyed them! 2y

I have seen a lot of book stacks with diverse reads recently. Here's my book stack. I'm currently reading Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley. Long overdue to read that one. I'm looking forward to reading this entire stack over the next several months. Especially Lost Vintage by Ann Mah, Mama Day by Gloria Naylor, Queen of America by Luis Alberto Urrea, The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, & The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. Happy reading!

Smrloomis I liked the Namesake a lot. Haven‘t gotten around to the Belles or any Walter Mosley except for this one that I enjoyed. 2y

I started this yesterday and got quickly sucked in. Thanks to the #whodunitthesequel for introducing me to this. I quite like crime noir and this was a little bit different than I‘m used to, in a good way. The main character is a black man living in the corrupt city of L.A. in 1948. It was interesting getting his perspective and I really enjoyed this. I‘ve already requested the 2nd book from my library. 4⭐️

First in his series of crime novels starring Easy Rawlins and set in Chandler country in the 1940s, with the twist that Easy is a black man hired by a white psychopath to track down a missing woman. I got a bit lost towards the end and had difficulty keeping all the characters and their motivations straight but the atmosphere of post-war black urban California is brilliantly conjured up and Easy is a great character.

Finished this one quickly, but it was just a so-so read for me. I don‘t want to get into too much for those in #WhoDunItTheSequel who haven‘t read it yet, but noir is not really my thing. However, I loved catching a glimpse of 1940s LA from a unique perspective.

I‘m taking this to the post office tomorrow, @bookwrm526 !

This one didn‘t really jibe with me unfortunately. Perhaps I am not really into LA noir but also I thought the “Devil” was very badly written. Anyway, I can say I have at least tried this author.

This was so much more than great noir. Mosley‘s prose is so damn effortless and effective; Easy is a fascinating, complicated protagonist; and the mystery is all wrapped up in issues of race and perception. It‘s flat out brilliant. So much punch packed into such a slender package.

I read this because it was on a list of top 100 crime novels. It was a good start to a series and really brought postwar LA to life. Could easily imagine Marlowe on a different case one block over from Rawlins. Will I read more in the series? Maybe, if I think of it! So many series, so little time 😕

Great, twisty hard-boiled crime thriller with well-drawn characters and a large dose of reality of being a black man in America. Unfortunately, police brutality has not changed much since the fourties. We also have a white femme fatale, a doomed love affair, a dangerous friend, and dangerous, ugly truths. An entertaining but also thought-provoking read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great, hard-boiled crime set in Los Angeles 1948, the first in the Easy Rawlins series. He‘s out of a job so takes money to find a woman named daphne monet. Taut, well-written, the dialogue is spot-on and you feel like you‘re on the mean streets & speakeasies of LA. Easy is a complex man, with a violent past, but now a mortgage & wanting a real home & steady job. He‘s black & racism (from police etc) is dealt with in a matter of fact way.

Solid introduction to a new to me series. Set in 1948 LA, Easy Rawlins has just lost his job in a factory. A friend connects him with a guy who needs help finding a woman, and things spiral from there. Mosley crafted a sense of time and place that made the story come alive.

A friend of mine is a big fan of Walter Mosley, which is one of the reasons I was looking forward to reading this for #whodunitthesequel. It‘s a quick read which is good because I‘m doing the #epicbuddyread of #TheNameoftheWind, as well as #graphicnovelweekplus and the buddy read of #EvelynBoxfish ... This was between a pick and a so-so for me. But I want to find out more about Easy Rawlins and Mouse so I‘m giving it 3 1/2 🌞. (Continued)👇👇👇👇

Easy Rawlins is out of work and worried about how he's going to pay his mortgage. A white man tracks him down so Easy can do a job for him. He wants Easy to locate a white woman who likes to hang out in the black underground clubs. Easy isn't too thrilled about working for the man with dead eyes, but $100 will pay mortgage and more (it's after WWII). Easy takes the job, but it's a whole lot more than he bargained for.
