In a Nutshell: Best known for his entertaining Easy Rawlins crime novels, brilliant crime writer Walter Mosley has decided his 10th Rawlins novel is his last. (His diverse writing will continue, however, with other novels and stories.)

"Blonde Faith" is breezy, especially fun for its inventive description and focuses on a charismatic detective who is both wild and fuzzy (the feel good kind). Distraught because he has lost the love of his life, he nevertheless continues doing what he is good at — investigating crimes (with a touch of humor) while falling in lust with various attractive women.
