Like Richard Price or William Kennedy, Pelecanos pushes his characters to the extremes, their redemption that much sweeter because it is so hard fought. Pelecanos has long been celebrated for his unerring ability to portray the conflicts men feel as they search and struggle for power and love in a world that is often harsh and unforgiving but can ultimately be filled with beauty.

Fairly pedestrian plot; excellent narration
Pelecsnos us a fine writer, and his knowledge of DC's underworld and slang (think The Wire, on which he collaborated).unequalled. This is a somewhat sentimental, somewhat obvious story of a "troubled" youth who manages to transcend his problems, but whose less fortunate friends do not. Enjoyable enough for a quick read.
