Sherlock Holmes un-kicked the bucket way back in 1894. More than a century later, even though Harry Potter ends up on the wrong side of a killing curse, he un-bites the dust. In "Game of Thrones," Beric Dondarrion has un-bought the farm at least six times, despite having been hanged, impaled by a lance, bashed in the head with a mace and stabbed through the eye with a dagger. And that's just by the end of the third season. So author Walter Mosley had ample precedent to un-pull the plug on his most famous fictional creation, Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins.

The trial of Baltimore Officer Clyde Rawlins Jr. centered on several issues yesterday, including whether Rawlins pulled a clump of hair from the man he is accused of assaulting and whether obscenities shouted by the man caused a crowd to gather on Argyle Avenue in July. The answers varied depending on who was asked. Rawlins, 25, is on trial on charges of assault, perjury and misconduct in office. If convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to 20 years, said Assistant State's Attorney Elizabeth Ritter, who is prosecuting the case.

A Baltimore police officer accused of assaulting a man he arrested last summer took the witness stand yesterday and denied punching the suspect, whom he had wrestled to the ground during a scuffle. Officer Clyde Rawlins Jr., who faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of assault, perjury and misconduct in office, spent an hour detailing a two-minute encounter with Larry Nathaniel in the 1400 block of Argyle Ave., which began with an argument and ended with the 19-year-old handcuffed and suffering a black eye. "I never hit him," Rawlins said, after he demonstrated to the jury how he tried to subdue what he described as a combative suspect by having his lawyer, Michael Belsky, lie on his back on the courtroom floor, playing the part of Nathaniel.

During a court hearing yesterday, police investigators revealed that evidence against a second Baltimore officer was stolen in a Christmas Eve break-in at a secret police office. Assistant State's Attorney Elizabeth A. Ritter said the assault and misconduct case against Officer Clyde Rawlins Jr. was not compromised by the missing evidence. At the hearing, Baltimore Circuit Judge John N. Prevas denied a motion by Rawlins' lawyers to dismiss the case because of the break-in, but castigated Ritter for failing to turn over evidence that could help the defendant prove his innocence.

Everybody needs love, even a private eye. But how does that longing mesh with an independent spirit? Six mysteries here consider that question. Robert Wilson has titled his eighth novel Blood Is Dirt (Harcourt, 320 pages, $14), borrowing a phrase from a Wilfred Owen poem. "Blood Is Everywhere" would have been equally apt. Wilson's book, first published in England seven years ago, is set in Nigeria and Benin. It opens with the gruesome slaughter of a sheep, a deliberate metaphor for what follows.

This week's indictment of a Baltimore police officer on an assault charge has department commanders wondering why a seemingly minor brutality case became a felony charge. Central District Officer Clyde Rawlins Jr. was indicted Wednesday for allegedly assaulting 19-year-old Larry Nathaniel during an arrest. No one disputes that Nathaniel suffered a black eye when he was arrested in July on disorderly conduct and resisting charges. Rawlins described the scuffle and injury in his own report.
