Two former DC cops, one black and one white, find themselves collaborating to clear the reputation of another black cop who was shot in mysterious circumstances. Gritty, slangy, unflinching about the drug and prostitution trades and the racial tensions on the streets of our nation's capital.

Whenever you come upon a new author it takes a bit of time to get into his rhythm of writing. This is definitely a new author for me and the story-line is exceptional, the characters compelling and the plot tight. I'll be looking for more from Pelecanos.

I really enjoyed this hardboiled crime novel which takes place in the Washington D.C. area. It's a little graphic and gritty in places, but a very good read.

First time I've read this author. Excellent mystery. I enjoyed the characters and the realistic descriptions of the environments that exist in many parts of the country today.
