    Die Machenschaften eines dubiosen Auftraggebers zwingen Leonid McGill in das dunkle Herz Manhattans hinab.

Als er bei seinen Ermittlungen durch Zufall in einen Mord verwickelt wird, hat er dann aber doch ganz andere Sorgen... Leonid McGills Familie ist alles andere als harmonisch: Seine Frau Kathrina liebt er nicht, zwei von drei Kindern sind nicht von ihm, und sein einziger leiblicher Sohn haßt ihn. Doch Harmonie ist ohnehin Leonids Sache nicht.

    Den 53-årige afroamerikanske newyorker Leonid McGill er en detektiv af den gamle skole. Forførende, brutal og ikke bly for at påtage sig lyssky opgaver for hurtige penge. Han er dog nået til et punkt i sit liv, hvor han forsøger at gøre op med sin småkriminelle fortid og komme på ret spor efter et helt liv i skyggen. Det viser sig at være vanskeligere end først antaget. Da han får til opgave at opspore fire unge mænd alene ud fra deres street names, stiller han ingen spørgsmål, men da deres lig efterfølgende begynder at dukke op et for et, ser han sig pludselig nødsaget til at tage stilling til en by, der ikke er, hvad den giver sig ud for at være. Udadtil har byen forandret sig, og McGill har søgt at følge med, men brutaliteten og magtarrogancen lurer fortsat i byen bag byen.

    We last saw Easy in 2007’s Blonde Faith, fighting for his life after his car plunges over a cliff. True to form, the tough WWII veteran survives, and soon his murderous sidekick Mouse has him back cruising the mean streets of L.A., in all their psychedelic 1967 glory, to look for a young black man, Evander "Little Green" Noon, who disappeared during an acid trip. Fueled by an elixir called Gator’s Blood, brewed by the conjure woman Mama Jo, Easy experiences a physical, spiritual, and emotional resurrection, but peace and love soon give way to murder and mayhem.
