Marcus & Dimitri make a fine pair of recurring characters for Pelecanos, along with several more. When I read this book, I kept thinking Pelecanos MUST have been a drug lord or a dealer or even homeless. It all seems perfectly real - gang executions, cocaine-fueled violence, stealing a sack of money - Pelecanos makes the action crackle and the dialogue is smooth and sometimes sassy.

Be sure to read King Suckerman before this one, and The Big Blowdown by Pelecanos is actually considered the first book in this four-book series. The Sweet Forever stands out as the best of the group.
