About the book:

With the love of a good woman and two beautiful children, Easy Rawlins has put his past life of trading favors behind him. Following the loss of his best friend and sidekick, Mouse, he wants to set an example for his children by earning an honest living. But trouble has a way of finding Easy on the mean streets of Watts. Easy wanders from schoolhouse to whorehouse as he is drawn into investigating the torching of Sojourner Truth, the Junior High School where he works, then the turning over of a local garage and the death of a prostitute. But no man is an island...His job, his lover, his comfortable house and the children he cherishes all count for nothing when the phone rings and a woman asks if he knows where Mouse is. Easy soon discovers that Mouse is as much of a moral challenge dead as alive. Rich in character and place, the stories reveal the complex nature of the American experience - the issues of class and race, hope and despair, light and darkness. "Six Easy Pieces" is confirmation that Mosley's vision continues to stretch and redefine the American canon. Praise for Walter Mosley's "Easy Rawlins" novels: ' an original, beguiling creation' - "The Times". 'Mosley is a master at evoking a moody world filled with shadowy menace...The dialogue crackles' - "Yorkshire Post". 'The fascinating and vividly rendered world of Easy Rawlins seems at once exotic and believable, filled with memorable individuals and morally complex situations' - "Wall Street Journal".
