Fear of the Dark by Walter Mosley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really liked this book there was alot of death, no sex and plenty of booze. Not much different from the Easy Rawlins series. I think I like Easy better.. Fearless Jones is supposed to be the main character but this book was told from the perspective of his friend Paris Minton.
The story is simply, Paris' cousin Useless comes to his house but Paris won't let him in because the last time he did the police showed up and a whole lot of trouble. And then Ulysses (called Useless by everybody but his mama) goes missing and his mother shows up on Paris' door wanting help finding the manchild.
But his cousin Useless is not his only problem there is his white girl and I can not remember her name because they mainly referred to her as the white girl. Remember this story is set in the 1950's Los Angeles and there was nothing politically correct about that time.
