Known to Evil is the second story in the Leonid McGill detective series and the second title of work that I've read by Walter Mosley. I must admit I was not extremely impressed by the first in the series as I stated in a previous review, perhaps my expectations were too high. Yet I read the second anyway and I must say that Leonid has grown on me. Walter Mosley does an excellent job of drawing a picture of this middle-aged detective seeking redemption from people he has wronged in the past. I like the way that he has the character have to deal with the ills of day to day life and try to balance a family and working a case at the same time. It was pretty good, looking forward to reading the thrid in the series.
