Having chronicled Easy's adventures from the '40s to the '60s, Mosley jumps back in time to when easy and Mouse were 19 year olds on the threshhold of manhood.  Mouse is about to marry Etta Mae & wants to bring a dowry to the marriage.  He decides to go ask his stepfather for some money & things don't work out real well.

This series has been consistently excellent & it's fun to see the characters as young men.
