Description

Five years have passed since the White Butterfly Affair, there's a Kennedy in the White House and Martin Luther King is in the news. It might look like a new dawn for Black America but for Easy Rawlins times are only getting tougher - his real-estate empire is deep in the hole. Trouble comes knocking once more when Easy's asked to find a missing woman, Elizabeth Eady, aka 'Black Betty'. From her native Houston to her position as housekeeper for a wealthy Beverly Hills family, Betty's beauty and raw sensuality have left a trail of chaos and mayhem in her wake. Walter Mosley's previous "Easy Rawlins" novels are "White Butterfly", "A Red Death" and "Devil in a Blue Dress", a film starring Denzel Washington as Easy.show more
