"Pelecanos joins company with James Ellroy, Andrew Vachss and Jack O' Connell in extending the noirest tones of crime fiction and unleashes a lacerating view of urban angst and degradation."--Publishers Weekly
"One of the country's finest writers, no matter the genre."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Mr. Pelecanos. . . is part of a fraternity of writers, including Dennis Lehane and Richard Price, who push the boundaries of crime writing into literary territory, exploring character more deeply than many crime novelists dare, introducing challenging social themes and bucking expectations that everything will come out all right in the end."--Motoko Rich, New York Times
"Few novelists have chronicled urban crime as convincingly as George Pelecanos."--Jeffrey A. Trachtenberg, Wall Street Journal
"George Pelecanos does not write for those seeking a stock crime novel, who like their books conventional, their plots pat and their endings neatly tied up. . . . Pelecanos writes a different kind of book: gritty, disturbing, and unpredictable . . . powerful and compelling."--Miles Corwin, Los Angeles Times Book Review
