Watts is smoldering in ruins-and the cops are on Easy Rawlins's doorstep. Easy expects the worst, as usual. But, incredibly, they're asking for his help. A redheaded woman known as Little Scarlet had sheltered a man during the riots. Witnesses later saw him fleeing her building; not long after, Little Scarlet was found viciously murdered. Now, with his old friend Mouse at his side, Easy follows the case's single clue across Los Angeles. The missing man is the key, but he's only the beginning. Hidden in the heart of the city is a killer whose red-hot rage is as fierce as the fires that rocked L.A.

Talk about Little Scarlet (Easy Rawlins Mysteries)


Jox
I'm a fan of Mosely in general, and of his Easy Rawlins stories in particular - but this particular story is wide of the work I've come to expect from Mosley. The device that drives the story is the murder of a young black woman (the eponymous Scarlet) allegedly by a white man at the climax of the 1965 Watts riots. The focus of the story is really the riots - and their aftermath - than the investigation itself, which tends to drag on. It is this glacial pace, and the lack of clear focus, that warrants a mediocre review.

The effects of the riots - on Rawlins, who (rightly) revels and enjoys his new-found voice after the riots- as he talks plain (or talks back), refuses to cower or pay respect to the police or whites in general is the main theme of the book. While I enjoyed the sense of the bottom rail being on top, and on the power that Rawlins (and by extension, the rest of the African-American community) felt, I was missing the interactions among the Black community and the investigation itself that I enjoy so much in Mosley's writing.

I'm going back to Easy Rawlins having never finished the series. This book has a different tone from the earlier books. It's a bit meditative reflecting Mosley's meditation on change both physical and psychological. In a world of turmoil Easy is trying to hold what he's got while keeping his eyes open. There are constants in his life, his family, Mouse, and the other men and women who have popuated the other books.

I thought the ending was a bit anticlimatic but then sometimes life is the same way and there was no one left to do what had to be done. And any other ending would've caused the very same problems Easy was working to avert.

This provides a great backstory to how Easy Rawlins got his in with 2 hard men on the LAPD. Also how he came to be a Black Man in LA to have a PI's license
I have been reading Walter Mosley for a great many years (20+), and really don't remember if it ever came up before.... His work is something you can read several times and like all great authors, each time you gain a better understanding of the characters.

I have read all of the Easy Rawlins mysteries and have enjoyed them all. However, I must admit to some trepidation as I read the first few chapters of the book. There were elements of the story that seemed to be very familiar. Once again, Easy Rawlins was being coerced by the police to search for someone in South Central Los Angeles. In tone and substance, it looked like Walter Moseley was going to go down a well worn path. I feared that he was beginning to rely too much on "formulas".

Having finished the book, I still think that Mosely is relying on forumlas and that he goes back to too many of the same characters and stock situations. Nevertheless, Mosely is such a strong writer and Easy Rawlins such a great character that Walter Mosely is able to pull it off.

Mosely's strength is not in his plots. It is the character of Easy Rawlins that makes me purchase each new book as soon as they come out. Through Easy Rawlins, we are able to enter the mind of an African American man living in Los Angeles in the post war years. Rawlins lives and operates in a pressure cooker. He has to deal not only with the racism and pressure of the white world but also the dysfunction and violence of his own people. It is simply fascinating to see how Easy Rawlins survives and even prospers in such an unremittingly harsh environment. It is Easy Rawlins the thinker and philosopher that sets him apart from so many other characters.

As an outsider, Walter Mosely has given me entree into a different world. His descriptions of 1960's Los Angeles gives me new insights into the current experience of African Americans. There are not a lot of mystery writers who can offer so much.

As the author of NATIVE INTELLIGENCE, Native Intelligence I am a big fan of mystery books. And I LOVE Walter Mosley. My biggest fear is that one day I will run out of his 'Easy Rawlins' mysteries. "LITTLE SCARLET" is one of his best. It grabs you from the first page, catapulting you back to the time of the Watts riots when tension between whites and Blacks was raw and constant. Walking the edgy line between the two, while trying to solve the murder of a beautiful Black woman, 'Easy' is once again on a search for clues to her death all over L.A. Mr. Mosley's descriptive style paints a vivid picture of Life in those times and in those places...from the suburbs to the slums. Thankfully, when the situation gets too intense, he throws in a hilarious line to let you catch your breath. Once again, I devoured this offering just as I have the ones that came before...thankful that I had ordered "Cinnamon Kiss" and have that to look forward to. But there is a certain sadness that I have to leave "Little Scarlet" behind, knowing that I have ended one more sojourn in 'Easy's' world.

This is a stunning work. One of the most powerful opening chapters of any book I've read. In the wake of the Watts riots (which I remember from TV as a 10 year old) Easy reflects on the status of black people in a racist LA.

Reading this brings home how far we have to go in light of BLM and the recent awareness of police shootings of unarmed black men.

This was a good Easy Rawlins mystery. I love the twist and turns of Walter Mosley's characters.
I'm a real Mosley fan. His communication of the riots and the Black experience in this novel may not be as intense as those in more esoteric novels say by Toni Morrison, but he slowly gives a good feel for the times, and for those who read more of his books he continues to give a feel of the Black man's world in the U.S.
