Ex-boxer, terse-talking Leonid McGill personifies the detective noir genre and fits admirably into the bleak world as portrayed in Walter Mosley'slong list of tightly told thrillers.
"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.
