Review

This was a first for me. The opening paragraph describes a money shot for a porn film. Debbie Dare is the stage name of a popular porn star whose aged ex-porn star husband is found dead with an under-aged partner. But these deaths are not the crime to be solved. Mosley uses his cast of characters with Debbie as narrator to explore the circumstances and choices leading to a life making money on your knees, a common metaphor for a "country ran by big men" who put "little people in cages." Debbie is a stealth fighter who empowers not only herself but emboldens those around her. Mosley has written 42 books and I am definitely going to read more.
