Devil in a Blue Dress, White Butterfly, and A Red Death. The First Three Volumes in the Easy Rawlins Series.

New York: Norton, 1990-92. First Printings of the First US Edition. All three volumes are Fine tight copies in Fine unclipped dust jackets. Each volume is Signed by Mosley. Walter Mosley broke new ground as a mystery writer by incorporating issues of race into novels that stand on their own as gripping detective fiction. Critics have praised Mosley's writing for its realistic portrayal of street life in African-American neighborhoods of post-World War II Los Angeles. Mosley's success has been due to the powerful recurring character of Ezekiel ("Easy") Rawlins, one of the most innovative private investigators to appear in fiction. Unlike many detectives who populate the pages of hard-boiled prose, Rawlins is a multidimensional character who stumbled into his sleuthing career as a means to pay mounting debts. Mosley has used Rawlins to expose the problems of getting by in a world where only a thin line lies between crime and business as usual. Item #22167
