Book 4 of 5 in the Leonid McGill Mysteries Series.

Leonid McGill has reasons to believe she’s innocent. The one thing I really didn’t like about All I Did Was Shoot My Man was the fact that the book was filled to the brim with characters and personalities from previous McGill books. But reopening the case is only serving to unsettle McGill’s private life even further-and expose a family Zella Grisham never denied shooting her boyfriend. That’s not why she did eight years of hard time on a sixteen-year sentence. It’s that the shooting inadvertently led to charges of grand theft.

As the case unfolds, as the truth of what happened eight years ago becomes more damning and more complex than anyone dreamed, McGill and Zella realize that everyone is guilty of something, and that sometimes the sins of the past can be too damaging to ever forget.

Leonid McGill in Walter Mosley's fourth book in this mystery series, All I Did Was Shoot My Man, is a proud man who's not going to take any mess from anybody, high to low. Like other Mosley characters.

Leonid McGill in Walter Mosley's fourth book in this mystery series, All I Did Was Shoot My Man, is a proud man who's not going to take any mess from anybody, high to low. Like other Mosley characters (Socrates Fortlow comes to mind), he has done bad things in his life and wants to redeem himself. Once a fixer who helped cover up crimes, now he's a private eye trying to help others.

In the latest and most surprising novel in the bestselling Leonid McGill series, Leonid finds himself caught between his sins of the past and an all-too-vivid present.

Seven years ago, Zella Grisham came home to find her man, Harry Tangelo, in bed with her friend. The weekend before, $6.8 million had been stolen from Rutgers Assurance Corp., whose offices are across the street from where Zella worked. Zella didn't remember shooting Harry, but she didn't deny it either. The district attorney was inclined to call it temporary insanity-until the police found $80,000 from the Rutgers heist hidden in her storage space.

For reasons of his own, Leonid McGill is convinced of Zella's innocence. But as he begins his investigation, his life begins to unravel. His wife is drinking more than she should. His oldest son has dropped out of college and moved in with an exprostitute. His youngest son is working for him and trying to stay within the law. And his father, whom he thought was long dead, has turned up under an alias.

A gripping story of murder, greed, and retribution, All I Did Was Shoot My Man is also the poignant tale of one man's attempt to stay connected to his family.

I became a major Mosley fan reading his Easy Rawlins books. I thought of Mosley as one of our major contemporary American writers based on that series. This is the first Leonid McGill story I've read. If I'd started here, I would never gone on to the Rawlins books. Not that this book is poor in any way. It isn't bad at all. But it isn't stellar. It's just OK. I think my principal disappointment is the frantic, disjointed and hyperbolic style. Leonid suffers from a fever in the beginning of the book. And the character acknowledges his narration is feverish. While the character recovers from the fever, the writing does not. And, the character also lacks Easy's charm. He is brutish and violent without any redeeming qualities that I could find. I wonder why Mr. Mosley created this man. If he wanted a contrast to Easy, he could have gone so many other directions. I hope his next protagonist is more appealing and coherent.

All I Did Was Shoot My Man is the 4th offering in the Leonid McGill detective series from Walter Mosley that I've read it was the best thus far! I like and dislike very much when an author writes great dialogue for secondary characters. The reason I love is obvious, I love that character it draws me into the story. The reason I loathe is that the author rarely writes a stand alone novel for that character and that is disappointing. With all that said my favorite character in the detective series is Twill, McGill's middle child, he is very interesting and I must say that he really surprised me in this latest tale.

The story overall was very good, I must say with each story the nonsense of McGill's life as he is dealing with his cases are getting more and more complex which makes for great story. The downfall to me is that the mystery aspect of the stories are always interesting cases he picks up and also rough but conniving ways of solving the cases makes for great reading but the conclusion and intricacies of solving the cases are sometimes often confusing. But I am looking forward to reading the next!

Walter Mosley has written some excellent books over the years which have not only covered the crime element but also given a glimpse into the human soul. This novel is another to add to this list.

Leonid McGill is a man with a dark past that while he says he wants to forget it, he can't and probably will never. In this book, he needs to look into a robbery that seemingly was solved years prior by the arrest and imprisonment of Zella, but Leonid planted evidence at the time that led to her conviction when she was innocent. Upon her release from prison, Leonid is there to pick her up and get her life back on track.

Weighed down by guilt, Leonid gets involved in the mystery of who did do the robbery and why they want Zella and him dead.

The crime part of the storyline is fine but like a number of his predecessors in the field, it is the side stories that really make the book. Mosley tells a good story filled with human emotion that makes his work worth reading.

Lots of characters so one needs to try and keep track of them but it is worth it.

Being a big fan of Walter Mosley I bought this book as an eBook. I was very disappointed with it. First, it needs a lot of editing. I would bet it wasn't edited at all. Second, the story seemed to be disjointed and confused. I did finish the book but several times I was close to putting it down and going on to something better.

I love the Leonid McGill series, where the hard boiled, simile ridden, tough guy, first person P.I. genre is brought so fantastically up to date by Mosley. This latest entry has some excellent developments, like Twill joining the firm (not a spoiler - revealed in the first few pages). He not only joins, he contributes, paving the way for Twill and Leonid to operate as a team in future books. The mystery is okay, the new characters are interesting, and the conclusion is satisfactory. The usual "suspects" make their appearances - Hush, Kit, the wife, the other kids and their significant others, the girlfriend, the boxing trainer etc. Leonid has some enjoyable ass kicking and "pissing contest" scenes, and continues his quest to make amends for his past transgressions. I can't imagine L.M. fans not liking this one. Finally - Mr. Mosley, if you're one of those guys who actually reads these, get to that computer and start working on the next one, you hear?!

As I read "All I Did Was Shoot My Man" I actually felt as though I was visiting New York for several weeks. I really got involved in LT's movement around the city in cabs and on the train. How he just walked in off a sidewalk to a classical jazz joint, chatting with a complete stranger who is somehow involved in "the heist" or has an interest in "the heist'. I was left feeling excited about the atmosphere of music and food yet the potential of a hostile verbal or physical encounter left me feeling quite anxious. I found that LT's objective during theses encounters was always to make sure that he took away more information than he divulged.

Although I would never fall asleep in a park, I found it interesting how LT was so comfortable going back to Central Park, back to the very location where he slept as a kid during his homeless experiences, and just allowing himself to completely succumb to sleep in just moments.

I enjoyed how LT cleared his mind while on his many journeys. How he thought things thru, created scenarios, analyzed events and came to conclusions as he was on his way to his home on the Upper West Side and walking past buildings in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I found LT to be a real character, an interesting guy, often sensitive and more often intense. He spent a lot of time sizing everybody that he came in contact with up. He knew how to gain position in his relationships quickly and effectively. He applied his boxing training to many situations in his life. In fact, I loved the boxing analogies through out the book.

I would not want to marry the guy, or even care about him as a dear friend or family member. However he does make an interesting character to read about.
