Book notes sent in by Jean: I would love to add a mystery series on my behalf- it’s the Easy Rawlins series by Walter Mosley.
In the mid 90s there was a fab movie version of the first book (Devil in a Blue Dress—with an exceptionally hot Denzel Washinton). These are set in late 40s-mid 50s LA and show the town as it was then, from a Black perspective, and not at all shy at calling out the racism, much of which has changed very little. But they’re also just wonderful potboilers in the finest tradition. I recommend them to anyone wanting to read escapist fiction and diversify their bookshelves at the same time.
