It is 1948 in LA and Ezikeal "Easy" Rawlins, an African-American World War II veteran, is looking for work. At his friend's bar, he is introduced to a white man, DeWitt Albright, who is looking for someone to help him find a missing white woman assumed to be hiding somewhere in LA's Black community. This woman, Daphne Monet, happens to be the fiancée of a wealthy "blue blood," Todd Carter, who is currently the favorite in the city's mayoralty race. Daphne Monet is known to frequent the Black jazz clubs in LA. Easy, innocently, accepts Albright's offer; however, he quickly finds himself amidst murder, crooked cops, ruthless politicians, and brutalizing hoodlums. This is a Chandler-esque "who-done-it" with an African-American theme. —Joel Schesser african americanjazz clubprivate detectivemissing personjazz music52 morePlot summaryAdd synopsisTaglinesPrivate detective Easy Rawlins has been caught on the wrong side of the most dangerous secret in town.GenresCrimeDramaMysteryThrillerMotion Picture Rating (MPAA)Rated R for violence, sexuality and languageParents guide
