Devil In a Blue Dress

by Mosley, Walter

Walter Mosley's very well-received first book, introduces detective Easy Rawlins and centers around his transformation from day-laborer to detective. Set in Los Angeles in the 1940s, Rawlins takes on a side job to pay his mortgage after losing his job at a defense plant. His first mystery is trying to find a woman named Daphne Monet, a missing white woman who was known to frequent black jazz clubs. Devil in a Blue Dress was adapted into a film of the same title starring Denzel Washington.
