I'm reviewing the price not the book!
I have not read this book but it looks very good. I was hoping to get it on CD for those long drives to work but Whoa! Have you seen the price? $56 for an unabridged CD of a book that's only 300+ pages? In contrast, its' sequel is 400+ pages and the unabridged CD only costs $18! Is this a typo Amazon? or has the publisher gone mad?

this novel closely parallels "devil in a blue dress," switching the roles a bit. instead of easy rollins out finding justice with his tough little pal mouse, it's little pal paris minton with his tough buddy fearless jones out trying to find the same. poor paris gets roped into some bad luck when a misunderstanding gets his bookstore burned down in 1950's california. basically, paris feels cheated, no livlihood and no home as he lived in his store, and refuses to go out like a sucker. he gets his tough best friend fearless jones to help him find the villians that are trying to keep him down and they fully expect to get what they have coming to them.
this is no ordinary day in a black man's life, but it is written as such. the layman reading this piece might even feel like black men had to deal with garbage like this every day. though that was not the case, it wasn't far from it let me tell you. reading this gives a lot of insight to those not in the know and moseley is one of those rare writers who chooses to educate us while entertaining us. the lingo is indicative of the era and the characters are nicely fleshed out. ironically enough, fearless jones was my least favorite, probably because it wasn't really about him to begin with. he plays out like this hardcase with a heart of gold, brandishing his own private view of right and wrong.
paris is the real deal here. a mealy-mouthed sort with no real manly confidence, but he's not about to take his new misgiving lying down. he's no tough guy so he gets his tough guy friend to help. but by the end of the story, he changes nicely for the better and it was nice to see the little guy get some guts.

Mosley proves after his short hiatus from mystery writing, that he still has it. Paris Minton and Fearless Jones, the unlikely mystery-solving duo captivate the reader like Easy and Mouse. Both characters were very well-developed, and Mosley made mention of several lesser known characters in his Easy series. I look forward to more action from these two new characters.

This is the first time I read anything by Walter Mosely and I was very impressed. Fearless Jones ran like one of the those early black exploitation films like Coffy or Shaft, as far as being fast paced without the usual cheese. There was a bit of social commentary that may turn some people off but overall it's a great read. I read it in a day.

I love Mosley. I read everything the man has written. Sorry, I was disappointed. I should have reread one of Easy's stories. If you've never read Mosley this isn't a bad place to start. It is well written, but not up to Mosley's standard. So when you read another Mosley you'll be surprised at how much better it gets. If you've read Mosley you could skip this one.

I enjoyed Fearless Jones. However, i searched the chapters for the connection i have found with Ezekiel, Mouse and others of the Easy Rawlin's series. I was not clear why I should "feel" for and with Paris Minton. The marquee "Fearless Jones" character was even less compelling. In fact, the book could have been written without Fearless all together if Paris was given a little more guts. Fearless was less "fearless" and more quirky in ways that really would supported by a lot of background depth. Mouse he ain't. Maybe "Quirky Jones and his Gutless Sidekick" can be the title of the sequel.

Once again, Walter Mosley makes me fall in love with an African American everyman, Fearless Jones. Walter Mosley's work is so gripping, and never ceases to please. His flawed, yet principled, African American men, make you think twice about the ordinary every day working African American men that you may pass in your daily travels. I love Walter Mosley... He is pure genius.

So it's 2:30 in the morning and I know I'm sleepy but I just need to know what's going to happen to Paris, Frearless, and this woman, who's name happens to be Love. Women, (sigh) Paris is a push over, he gets his car stolen, his money stolen, his store burned to the ground, he gets the crap slapped out of hisself.
So he has to go bail his so called friend out of jail so that he can fight his battles.I must say Paris did end up having some smarts about hisself after all. Frearless, I liked Fearless but he was a little to wierd sometimes,taliking to dead white men and carrying on.
The most important part of the book...well the part that was important to me was Paris telling his story about how he came to be in LA.
This white librarian from his home town, told him point blank you can look, but you will never be able to touch, cause these books are for white children and he would never be able to use that library as long as he was black she didn't care how good he could read. So he left small, town USA and moved to LA where he said he could read all the books he wanted regardless of his skin color.
