Fearless Jones

by Walter Mosley

ISBN 1876631 449


Publication date: July 2001


Paris Minton is minding his own business - a small used-bookstore of which he is the proud proprietor - when a beautiful woman walks in and starts asking questions. Before he knows it, Paris has been beaten up, slept with, shot at, robbed, and his bookstore has been burnt to the ground. He's in so much trouble that he has no choice but to get his friend Fearless Jones out of jail to help him.

Things get scary fast as they look into this woman's past, and the more they learn, the harder it gets - as black men in 1950s LA they have few rights, little money and no recourse under attack.
