Adult Book Club – October 2017

This month the Adult Book Club is reading… Charcoal Joe by Walter Mosley.

Life for Easy Rawlins is surprisingly… easy. He’s living off the proceeds of his last case, trying to keep out of trouble. Of course it’s not going to last. Because Easy’s old friend Mouse knocks on his door. Mouse is one of the deadliest men in America. And Mouse wants a small favour. He wants Easy to help a man he says is wrongly imprisoned, a friend of Charcoal Joe. Charcoal Joe is a mythical figure in the LA underworld – he pulls all the strings but keeps out of sight. Reluctantly, Easy agrees – he owes Mouse his life. But this is no small favour. It’s going to be Easy’s deadliest investigation yet. It’s going to take him from the beaches of Malibu to the shadiest stretches of Sunset in a frenetic adventure through a wild and unrepentant city.

To check availability or place a hold, please see the catalog.  Copies of the book in various formats can also be picked up anytime at the circulation desk prior to the meeting. Continue reading “Adult Book Club – October 2017” »
