Paris Minton is minding his own business - a small used-book store of which he is the proud proprietor - when a beautiful woman walks in and asks a few questions. Before he knows it, Paris has been beaten up, slept with, shot at, robbed, and his bookstore has been burnt to the ground. He?s in so much trouble he has no choice but to get his friend Fearless Jones out of jail to help him. Things get scary fast as they look into this woman?s past, and the more they learn, the harder it gets - as black men in 1950s L.A. they have few rights, little money, and no recourse under attack. Fearless is written with the dazzling pace of noir classics like The Maltese Falcon, but with the humor and brilliant insights into American times, places and morals that have made Walter Mosley?s novels bestsellers.
