Salvation. Whenever Walter Mosley departs from his usual character-driven fiction, readers know he is having a good time letting his imagination soar and bringing loyal readers along for a fascinating ride. In his novel titled, Inside a Silver Box, Mosley explores the proximity of death, and how salvation can come from unlikely sources. Things are never as they appear in Mosley’s world: the silver box contains the most powerful force in the universe, and means peril and death to all of us. Readers who enjoy imaginative fiction that takes us outside the world we think we live in are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
