Product Description

Review

'Pelecanos maps the social landscape of DC with a compassionate complexity, scouring the badlands of the city and the psyche for the causes of criminality and the bonds that bind communities.' (GUARDIAN )

'A stunning, gripping read' (Simon Shaw MAIL ON SUNDAY )

'Pelecanos is in the top rank of American crime scribes, and this is him at his very best.' (SUNDAY MERCURY )

'A fine novel with rich dialogue and characters.' (HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER )

Review

'The Turnaround is about fathers and sons, growing up and growing old, yet it is effortlessly gripping and moving. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'Crime novelist George Pelecanos has created a stylish, unsettling meditation on the repercussions of wrongdoing that confounds expectations. ... Thought-provoking as ever, Pelecanos manages to write a tale that is intimate and panoramic, taut and lyrical.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'He is, we reckon, the best Amerian writer working at the moment. And no, we don't just mean in crime fiction.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

'Pelecanos has a perfect ear for the rhythms of life and language in his beloved Washington - not the nabobs of Capital Hill, but the ghettoes and the immigrant communities he knows so well. ... This is an excellent thriller about choices, family values, loyalty, and, ultimately, violent redemption.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
