Fortunate Son (Mosley)

I knew from having read Devil in a Blue Dress that Mosley’s world is a man’s world, and that’s the case again here in Fortunate Son. The men, specifically the two brothers – Eric & Thomas –  are powerful, well-endowed, and irresistible. The women are wise and whorish. There’s not so much a plot here as just a series of seemingly events, and many lack credibility. Some characters are cardboard cutouts, such as the Vietnamese nanny turned housekeeper and a creepy business tycoon.

Mosley is coming to Minnesota, and I plan to go hear him. He’s considered a master of the trade. I did enjoy Devil in a Blue Dress. If you have any suggestions about a Mosley book that would get me back in the mood to hear him talk, let me know.
