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.

This work by Pelecanos was a slow starter with fair character development and what was hopeful to work up to a fast paced and riveting end. That ending never cames, instead we have an ending that is little more than a flat narrative of the events that unraveled a poorly assembled story that is a grind to take in anyway. Not a good read, if it were a paper novel it would have hit the trash before I got through the first half.
