Hello All,

Carey: Yeah, you are right about Socrates Fortlow. Mosley introduced him in the book Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned. A marvelous book! Socrates is an excon who was living on the streets in LA in the first book. Lawrence Fishburn did play him in a HBO movie with Natalie Cole in it.

In The Right Mistake, Socrates started a community think tank and community center called The Big Nickel. It is da bomb! I love it! Mosley sticks to simple stories with powerful messages. It's up your alley, believe me!

Crystal: Go ahead and snatch the book from your son for a minute. You'll love it. I did not know that Mosley had a new PI coming out. I wonder if he's going to continue with the Fearless Jones series?
