News: Walter Mosley signs book deal featuring Easy Rawlins

Mosley’s Easy Rawlins is back

Easy Rawlins is back on the case.

Walter Mosley has a three-book deal with Doubleday, including two more novels featuring the Los Angeles detective played by Denzel Washington in the film version of “Devil in a Blue Dress.”

The character seemed to have met his end at the conclusion of “Blonde Faith” in 2007, but Doubleday said the next Easy Rawlins book will arrive in 2013. It didn’t say whether the new books will be set before or after “Blonde Faith.”

NBC also is reported to be developing a drama series based on the Rawlins detective.
