Joe King Oliver is an ex- cop trying to solve the mystery of who framed him. On his journey to clear his name, he struggles with good vs. evil and trust. Mosley doesn't disappoint with vibrant descriptors like that this one where he describes Gladstone Palmer, fellow police colleague and friend to Oliver:

"The door opened and the tall, athletic, eternal sergeant walked in. He was wearing a straw-colored sports jacket and trousers so dark green that they might have passed for black. The white shirt and blue tie were his mainstay, and that smile lived equally in his eyes and on his lips."

Oliver's run-ins with a seductive sociopath, militant journalists, politicians and more makes it hard to put this book down.
