Archibald Lawless, Anarchist at Large by Walter Mosley download in pdf, ePub, iPad
It didn't add or take away from my love of this short story. Westlake's Walking Around Money, featuring a small group of criminals trying to clear a big payday at a printing plant that - what could be better - prints money. Would like to meet Archibald Lawless and Felix again.
So check it out from the library to peruse first. He works for the good of others but not without helping himself to the goodies like money, etc. For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular. He works outside of the law with I would say his personally picked vigilante team or workers.
In this instance, he hired Felix Orleans, whom I liked. We use this information to create a better experience for all users. It seemed like the police just need someone to pay for the murder of a man.
Alone, I would give it three-and-a-half stars, which is above average for this collection. Felix, a clean guy, who has left home for the first time to live on his own, is put in jail and almost charged with murder. Much more common are flat characters and predictable plotlines. My best advice is to check it out from the library, read the novellas of Stephen King and Jeffery Deaver, and consider yourself ahead of the game. To me, he became like Robin Hood.
It really, really bothered me that justice can swing the way of injustice so quickly. Walter Mosley's prison scared me too.
He meets strange characters. Holds the man's head, Lansman, thinking he had a Heart attack. He's a journalist student hired by Archibald as a scribe. Felix becomes more than a scribe or secretary.
