From innovative bestselling novelist Walter Mosley comes the return of the beloved Leonid McGill detective series featuring a morally ambiguous P.I. who solves crimes and whose victims are society's most downtrodden.

Leonid McGill's spent a lifetime building up his reputation in the New York investigative scene. His seemingly infallible instinct and inside knowledge of the crime world make him the ideal man to help when Phillip Worry comes knocking.

Phillip "Catfish" Worry is a 92-year-old Mississippi bluesman who needs Leonid's help with a simple task: deliver a letter revealing the black lineage of a wealthy heiress and her corrupt father. Unsurprisingly, the opportunity to do a simple favor while shocking the prevailing elite is too much for Leonid to resist.

But when a famed and feared assassin puts a hit on Catfish, Leonid has no choice but to confront the ghost of his own felonious past. Working to protect his client, and his own family, Leonid must reach the heiress on the eve of her wedding before her powerful father kills those who hold their family's secret.

Joined by a team of young and tough aspiring investigators, Leonid must gain the trust of wary socialites, outsmart vengeful thugs, and, above all, serve the truth-- no matter the cost.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mosley’s sixth Leonid McGill PI novel is so short, it almost seems like a throwaway. It’s not. This gifted raconteur of the African American experience has produced an absorbing noir beauty of a tale about a ninetyfour-year-old Mississippi bluesman, aptly named Philip ‘Catfish’ Worry, bent on a good deed that could get him killed. He hires McGill.” Washington Post
“Gritty…The plot soars…Few mystery writers can examine issues of race—how it divides and binds people—as clearly and unflinchingly as Walter Mosley.” Associated Press
“Mosley delivers enough good stuff to let you know a master’s at work.” Kirkus Reviews
“Spieled in a powerful, streamlined voice, this wrenching American noir will stick with readers long after the final page.” Booklist
“Dion Graham offers an amazing performance…Graham delivers Mosley’s noir mystery with his usual excellence, giving each character an individual personality. His women are always respectfully treated, never stereotypes, while his gangsters are frighteningly real. With his mastery of dialects and tone, Graham delivers suspense best listened to. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
