Crime-writing phenom S.A. Cosby (Blacktop Wasteland) and Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Walter Mosley (Blood Grove) discuss their newest books in conversation with Stephen Mack Jones. Cosby presents a “Southern noir twist… a searing operatic story of a man pushed to his limits by poverty, race, and his own former life of crime”, and Mosley returns to his brilliant Easy Rawlins series with “a crackling, moody, and thrilling race through a California of hippies and tycoons, radicals and sociopaths, cops and grifters, both men and women.”

“The year’s most celebrated crime novel, and with good reason. It’s a soaring, deeply felt, deeply propulsive tale written by an author coming into his full powers…Cosby writes beautifully of the sensations and memories that drive Bug through the night and down the empty roads toward his old life. Dread and excitement combine to create a unique sense of atmosphere, one that will keep readers pushing ahead toward a genuinely powerful conclusion.” ―CrimeReads The Best Novels of 2020
“Easy’s finely calibrated understanding of and commentary on the social and racial climate around him gives the novel its defining texture and power… A new Easy Rawlins novel is always big news in crime-fiction circles, and this fifteenth entry in the series does not disappoint.” ―Booklist
