Book Brief

October 31, 1999|By Doug Lyons | Doug Lyons,Knight Ridder/Tribune

"Walkin' the Dog," by Walter Mosley. Little Brown & Co. 288 pages. $24.95.

Socrates Fortlow returns in Walter Mosley's new novel.

The book is a good read, but like most sequels it lacks the grit and fire that made its predecessor "Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned" a standout story.

By the end of the sequel, one wonders what is left to say about what had been one of Mosley's most engaging characters.
