Getting by as an old-school private investigator in spite of Manhattan's increasingly sophisticated culture, Leonid McGill finds his commitment to living a straight-and-narrow life repeatedly tested when he attempts to obtain information for a high-paying client.
Walter Mosley (DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS) introduces longtime readers and fresh eyes to a new leading man with THE LONG FALL. Leonid McGill is an aging New York private detective who's tiring of the fast life and shady transactions. Not that he's feeling guilty for the methods he formerly employed, but now, as he explains, "I still plied my trade, but now I worried about things." But changing his ways proves not so simple.
