Walter Mosley's first Easy Rawlins mystery Devil in a Blue Dress is an interesting and exciting read.
Mosley takes the tradition of the hard-boiled detective novel and uses it to make social statements while still providing a very entertaining mystery story.
Place an interesting mystery and a likable, go-getter protagonist on top and it adds up to a very enjoyable book.
