BOOK REVIEW: Walter Mosley's 'Blonde Faith' Mystery is to Die For

For die-hard Walter Mosley fans, returning to the pages of an Easy Rawlins novel is like meeting up with an old friend at a much anticipated class reunion. "Blonde Faith" is one of those "Don't you dare interrupt me" novels. It’s colorful, fast-paced, and the detective work is reminiscent of TV's "CSI," "Without a Trace" and "Cold Case." Pages are filled with just about everything one would expect from a crime TV series ... violence, passion, sex, mystery, glamour and betrayal.
