Bad Boy Brawly Brown by Walter Mosley
In Bad Boy Brawly Brown, Easy Rawlins is trying to recover from his partner's death and trying to make sense out of life as a black man in Los Angeles in the early 1960s. Then Easy is asked to help find a young man, Brawly Brown, who's lived an unhappy life of poverty and abuse and has joined a black radical group called First Men. In his travels through the city in hopes of finding Brawly, Easy must experience and deal with the racism and violence that could threaten the young man's life. In this way, he can bring meaning back to his own life. This latest installment of the series has gathered a lot of good reviews, including the Los Angeles Times which calls it, "a story with the same imaginative vigor and the same unflinching honesty as its predecessors, Mosley continues to put a strong claim on urban crime fiction."
