"The place is Los Angeles. The year is 1961, the dawn of a hopeful era for America's black citizens. Easy Rawlins's quiet real-estate empire is deep in the hole, so he must accept $200 from the oily white private eye Saul Lynx to track down one Elizabeth Eady, aka 'Black Betty.' Easy's murder-strewn search takes him into the depths of America's racial dilemmas and the mysteries of human character -- and his creator to even greater heights of achievement in the American novel."

3 Mosley, Walter White Butterfly
New York W W Norton & Co Inc 1992 039303366X / 9780393033663 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
[1992]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Blue boards quarterbound in navy-blue cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 272pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new; the original price is intact. The third Easy Rawlins entry. ".It's 1956 and, times being what they are, no one in official Los Angeles pays much attention as a serial killer murders three black bar girls. But when a white stripper is similarly murdered -- and when she turns out to be a UCLA coed, and the daughter of a politically powerful L.A. prosecutor -- all hell breaks loose. The heat is finally on to find the killer. Stymied, the LAPD calls on Easy Rawlins for help, for Easy can go places and do things the police cannot. Reluctantly, Easy accepts their plea and begins a deadly quest that takes him through the seedy jazz joints of Bone Street and the dingy rooms of Hollywood Row. It is a brutal, dangerous odyssey that leads to a startling and heartbreaking conclusion -- and jeopardizes his marriage and his life."
