I found an in-depth, three-hour-interview with him on C-SPAN as part of Book TV’s “In Depth.” I enjoyed every minute of it and I was really inspired.

The interview introduced Mr. Mosley as “the author of over 40 books, including ‘Devil in a Blue Dress,’ ‘Fearless Jones,’ and most recently, ‘Down the River Unto the Sea.’”. His latest tale, FEARLESS JONES, is fabulous as he highlights a piece of Americana through his strong cast.

The players line up early, but that just adds to the excitement of a top-notch thriller. Hopefully Mr. Mosley will return us to Paris for more fearless stories of s America.
