Summary

''And now for something completely different from Easy Rawlins' prolific creator (''Cinnamon Kiss, ''2005, etc.), who' s branching out into still another genre... An interesting look at a male in midlife crisis. As L says, '' I had come alive. And life hurt.''

But this one is a quantum leap in versatility and bears the unmistakable earmark of the red-headed stepchild of the literary arts: hard-core pornography.'' - ''Radar'''''' ''More explicit than any other Mosley offering, this scintillating sexcapade soars above the chick-lit genre of pleasure and sincerely prov
