Houston, 1939. A nineteen-year-old Easy Rawlins and his friend, the dangerous Raymond ?Mouse? Alexander, are about to take the ride of a lifetime - into a mysterious bayou world of voodoo, sex, revenge and death that will both change and link their destinies for ever. The first book Walter Mosley wrote, Gone Fishin' introduces us to the world of Easy and Mouse and shows us the basis of their friendship - quite literally a matter of life or death. Walter Mosley is a major writer of his time - the promise of genius is clear to see in Gone Fishin'.

Review quote

?Magic emerges from Mosley?s writing - and it goes straight to the reader?s heart? Guardian ?The swamps and small towns of black Texas are rendered with an almost tactile grace, while the people who inhabit them are brought fully to life. Repressed by white culture, Mosley?s characters are left to assert their humanity through strenuous sex, raucous drinking, sudden violence and fervent spirituality? Sunday Times
