    Description

    Departing from his critically acclaimed Easy Rawlins mysteries, best-selling author Walter Mosley introduces Socrates Fortlow, an ex-con struggling to find his place in the world after 27 years in jail.

    Living in an abandoned apartment building in South-Central L.A., Socrates is one step away from the streets. He bags groceries at the supermarket, collects bottles and cans to recycle for pennies, and feels himself slipping toward invisibility - that is, until he meets 11-year-old Darryl, whose already committed murder and is perilously close to slipping into a life filled with only violence and bloodshed. Socrates' determination to fight for and save Darryl lights his own pathway to self-forgiveness.

    Lyrically written and deeply moving Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned provides an unflinching look into the hopelessness of poverty-stricken inner city life and into the life of one man who refuses to succumb to the despair around him. Narrator Peter Francis James perfectly captures Socrates' struggle to be a better man.

    Awesome

    Omg!!!!! This was my first novel by this author. I've heard of the great job he does and they were correct. It was if I was there. It was so vivid and life like. The ending had me in tears. The love he had for that man was just beautiful. I'm now a fan of Walter. Great read. I learned a little more life skills in this title. Awesome!!!!!!!!!

    Another great Mosley book about Socrates Fortolow

    Socrates is the distillation of all the best and worst of what America has done to black men and women. Although he self confesses that he’s been a murderer he haunted by the evil acts and sees himself as evil all the while struggling to be heard and seen as a man who in the end wants to redeem himself but refuses to debase himself-yet his heroic acts towards his dying friend as it was towards the black dog brings him closer to trouble and even jail.

    Can you feel it?

    Everyone finds one thing or event that makes you think of your own mortality and life’s worth . . . This was that for me. Amen

    Feels very real

    Good characters, great narration. An ex-con in Los Angeles struggles to make his life mean something. It is a real struggle too.

    On his journey, he mentors a young pre-teen who looks to be headed down the wrong path, helps a dying friend, attempts to save a dog that has been hit by a careless driver at the risk of being sent back to prison.
