Down the River Unto the Sea

Reconciliation. Prolific novelist Walter Mosley has a gift for fans: a new terrific protagonist. While some of Mosley’s readers can’t help but ask for more Easy Rawlins books, or Leonid McGill novels, those open to new characters will find a complex and well-developed protagonist in Joe King Oliver, introduced in a novel titled, Down the River Unto the Sea. King lost his NYPD job after somebody set him up with an accusation of rape, for which he was convicted and jailed. After release, he becomes a private detective, and, in this novel, he is dealing with a case to release another innocent inmate, while he searches for resolution and justice for those who sent King to prison. While on a journey of redemption, King struggles with achieving reconciliation and with staying alive, especially because of his love for his daughter. Mosley writes with great skill, and most fans of crime fiction will enjoy reading this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Down the River Unto the Sea from
