review 1: The Cut is a classic noir crime novel. The hero/protagonist kills, exploits women but also places his life in danger to free an innocent adolescent from capture and certain death. OK so far. But I found the story's plotting weak and the characters weak and too much like cardbo...

review 1: I enjoyed this book but found it a bit confusing at times. Jumping from one set of characters to another I sometime had to stop and remind myself who was who. I had not read the previous book using this detective but found I did not need too as he is explained enough in this on...

review 1: First book in the Spero Lucas series. George Pelecanos returns to what he does best: telling stories about the underbelly of Washington DC. Don't pick this up expecting a high-stakes political thriller, George Pelecanos tells stories of the other side of DC. With the passing o...

review 1: This was an interesting read, but hot great.My first from this author, and I suspect he's done better. Very idiosyncratic with all the references to specific shoes, even to the brand, cars, cigarettes and music. Honestly, if I was much younger I don't think I would have understoo...

review 1: okay I don't know about you but for me a mystery involves some level of "mystery"! A lot of these stories are just a horrible event remembered or unfolding and many of them seem to involve very old people and nursing homes and nurses, very odd. I've read collections of the best...

review 1: Pelecanos writes about the Washington the tourist never sees. His books reveal the gritty side of the nation's capital and the people you never hear about on the news...unless you're watching the local crime news in D.C. This book traces an early '70s spree by a rabid dog crimin...

review 1: Nice to see the definition of a "mystery" expanded. And fun to see that many top tier mags are publishing crime fiction--Tin House, Harper's, The New Yorker, The Southern Review. But now I've sold my soul, went and done something bad like give a nod to all those mags who don't ...
