  • "Grabs the reader by the throat even as it reaches the heart." (New York Daily News).

  • "Enthralling . . . compelling." (Denver Rocky Mountain News).

  • "Mr. Pelecanos's uniqueness comes from his bravery in ignoring the concept of cool.  Unlike many of today's chroniclers of streetwise behavior, he's not afraid to put heart and humanity into his mix, and it pays off in reader involvement . . . Pelecanos's prose is distinguished not only by the human protagonists but also by the humanity he finds in even the basest of his bad men." (Los Angeles Times).
