"A Little Yellow Dog," by Walter Mosley. Norton. 288 pages. $23.

Easy Rawlins is a black man in the tense years leading up to the civil rights movement. That alone is enough to earn him the constant attention of police. Plus, he's always "doing favors" for folks in sticky situations, which usually wind up with someone trying to kill him.

The author's latest book is murder, intrigue, sex, a fine historical perspective and a dash of wisdom.
