With the same erotic force as Killing Johnny Fry , this time with a far darker plot and damning view of human nature, Diablerie is a transfixing novel from a writer who is a master in any genre. "[Mosley] is...a fearless boundary pusher. His latest is a cold, dark vision....as Mosley ratchets up the tension, it's hard to look away — or stop reading."—San Diego Union Tribune Walter Mosley is the bestselling author of more than 26 critically acclaimed books; his work has been translated into 21 languages. His books include two mystery series, the Easy Rawlins series (including Devil in a Blue Dress , which was adapted into a 1995 film starring Denzel Washington) and the Fearless Jones series, as well as literary fiction, science fiction, political monographs, and a young adult novel. His short fiction has been widely published, and his nonfiction has been published in the New York Times Magazine and The Nation , among other magazines. He is the winner of numerous awards, including an O. Henry Award, a Grammy, and the PEN American Center's Lifetime Achievement Award. He lives in New York City.

Mosley writes a graphic and engaging thriller. His style is equally earthy and literary, and he uses it to transport you into a world that is familiar, but with exotic elements. The thriller ultimately gives way to a more interesting voyage of self-discovery that elevates the story above its genre.

Lots of phallocentric sex...the hero is well developed, but the women are two-dimensional cartoons of film noir sluts...I was disappointed, but I finished reading it to find out "who done it?"

Disappointing for a Mosley fiction. The characters were a collection of moral misfits that did not quite fit in the society norm or fringe. The ending made as much sense as "to be continued" of a novel in mho.

From the perspective of a huge Mosley fan, this was not one of his best, nor one of my favorites. Still has his trademark character personalities, just a little too much sex for the story (and I'm not being prudish about it). An good mystery read if you don't mind the R or X rated passages.

An intriguing tale that kept me guessing and hoping for the main character's innocence, even though he is not 100% likeable.
