Gritty hard-boiled suspense thriller from the all but hopeless streets of Washington D.C.'s worst neighborhoods. Pelecanos's rich eye for detail and his gift for the speech patterns and slang of black D.C.'s mean streets drags the reader right down into the violence and racism his characters endure day in and day out. Excellent storyteller, excellent book.

Great book in the series by G. Pelecanos, he accurately and brilliantly portrays life in the poverty areas of DC, life of addiction and crime, and the men that try to break the cycle.
You will enjoy it, I would say.

An intricate thriller, fast paced and compelling. "The voice of Pelecanos - raspy, brutal, vivid, moving - is one not to forget."
