Pressestimmen

Mosley is at the top of his form weaving another tale of fifties noir. THE HERALD (25.9.04) In Mosley's world, a pretty woman with a missing husband is shorthand for trouble, and the ensuing imbroglio involving a black millionairess, vanished jewels, bigoted policemen and a rising body count is executed with the author's signature mix of high-velocity action and effortless style. SUNDAY TIMES (24.10.04) This is taut, tense thriller-writing at its best. TELEGRAPH & ARGUS (Bradford - 22.1.05) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Synopsis

'Will not disappoint fans of the Easy Rawlins series...The prose is taut and sinewy and Mosley effortlessly creates a classic noir setting' Douglas Field, Big Issue Paris Minton is a man who would rather walk away from trouble, but in 1950s' Los Angeles, it just comes and finds you. Fearless Jones turns up on Paris's doorstep one night asking him to help an attractive woman find her husband. One night later a stranger shows up looking for the same man. It isn't long before Paris is running for his life, and it looks like even his friend Fearless might not be able to save him. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Format: Taschenbuch
Fear Itself wonderfully lives up to the superb quality of Fearless Jones, which began this series. If you haven't read Fearless Jones, I recommend reading that book first.

Fearless Jones is the finest new mystery I have read in decades. Its qualities place it alongside classics like The Maltese Falcon, while its deep exploration of human nature causes it to transcend the mystery genre. The story's subtle psychology reminds me of an ancient Greek drama. This book represents a new peak in the imagination and the writing of the immensely talented Mr. Walter Mosley. You have a rare treat in store. Start this book early in the day. You probably won't want to put it down.

Like the frozen expressions on Greek tragedians' masks, Fearless Jones considers three kinds of human motivation: The self-interested satisfaction of the senses; the rational mind assembling the pieces of a puzzle; and good character that comes the heart. The narration builds from the rational mind and conveys all of the classic elements of the best noir mysteries. Mosley's point is that good character will naturally triumph because of the finer emotions and responses it will evoke in others. I suspect that you will agree with him, and feel uplifted by this tale despite the plot's pathway through many dark alleys of depravity.

Few writers can take you inside the mind and body of the characters like Mr. Mosley. In both Fearless Jones and Fear Itself, you will think and feel along with Paris Minton, the owner of a used bookstore in Watts in the mid-1950s. Minton is a largely self-educated black man from Louisiana who came to California to find libraries that were open to all. His store's books are discards from local libraries.
