This was a terrific mystery Touie is a black private eye which causes all sorts of problems for him in the fifties among people who aren t uite so eager to drop racism from their lives I found this interesting for a couple of reasons First the cover has two whites on it apparently the publishers at the time felt like the book buying public wasn t ready for a black protagonist Also as forward thinking as the book was at the time there s still a little bit if homophobia present Still I thought it was about as good a mystery as you could write

It s a shame that this 1958 Edgar Award winner for Best Novel isn t popular than it is It s a solid piece of detective fiction and one of the first novels to feature a black private detective as the main character It s sort of a forerunner to the popular Easy Rawlins series In the book we follow Toussaint Touie Moore a small time detective who s clients mostly stem from the black jobs that his white colleagues throw at him He s trying to make the transition from being a club bouncer to running a legit private dick business So when a TV executive approaches him with a high paying job to simply keep tabs on a criminal before he s nabbed on an interactive true crime reality show he jumps at the opportunity But things go sour when the guy ends up with his skull bashed in and Touie is framed for the rapToussaint is completely atypical of your classic standard private dick While most popular fiction detectives are usually jaded and cynical Touie is bright eyed and hopeful making big plans for his new detective career while his high maintenance girlfriend Sybil threatens to dash his dreams She calls it a dead end career and pressures him to accept the suare post office job that is offered to him early on in the novel All of this makes his character very relatable and less of a brooding pessimist that many hard boiled detectives turn out to be The mystery is enjoyable the TV show element is surprisingly modern and ahead of it s time and the racial commentary is never forced and well integrated This is a good read that should be better known in the crime genre
