    Review: `When the Thrill Is Gone' superbly written

    "When the Thrill Is Gone" (Riverhead Books), by Walter Mosley: Leonid McGill's best friend is dying of cancer. His wife is having an affair with a man half her age, and his mistress is getting tired of him. His favorite son is mixed up in an Internet scam, and his other son is in love with a Russian arms dealer's girlfriend. And McGill's arch-enemy, a police detective who's been trying to put him away for years, is still hot on his trail.
