5.0 out of 5 stars 3 great books in 1, 17 Jan. 2003
This review is from: George P. Pelecanos: Three Great Novels: A Firing Offense, Nick's Trip, Down by the River Where the Dead Men Go: "Down By The River", " A Firing Offence", " Nick's Trip" (Paperback)
This is a great opportunity to get three great crime novels for the price of one. If you like Crais' "Elvis Cole" novels and James Crumley's books then I am pretty sure that you will enjoy this. The characters are great and the plots involving. You might argue that the characters are a bit cliched, but "cool guys that have sort of fallen into the detective role, good with the ladies and with a relatively under control booze habit" is, I am sure, what many of us who read these books would secretly like to be. These characters have become a cliche 'cos we like reading stories about them! The characters from these books reappear in Pelecanos' other novels and if, like me, you've read all the Crais, Crumley, Burke, Ellroy novels out there then this is a great introduction to another great series for you.
