Description
Following Soul Circus, featuring detectives Derek Strange and Terry Quinn, this stunning 12th thriller from George Pelecanos winds back to Derek's first days as a D.C. cop in the spring of 1968, when Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in Memphis ignited a firestorm on the streets of Washington. Esquire magazine hailed George Pelecanos as "the poet laureate of the D.C. crime world"; Stephen King described the Hammett Award–winning novelist and Emmy-nominated television writer even more succinctly, deeming Pelecanos "perhaps the greatest living American crime writer." One of our favorite authors here at Daedalus, Pelecanos grew up in the Washington, D.C., neighborhoods that the tourists and Congressmen never see, and the real star of his gritty hard-luck stories is the city itself.

"As Strange, a proud black man and a good cop, is forced to work riot control in his own neighborhood, all of the unresolvable conflicts—personal, racial, historical, political—that have roiled in the background of this novel are ignited in front of our eyes. Like Nathanael West describing the burning of Hollywood in The Day of the Locust, Pelecanos stage manages the conflagration perfectly, capturing the personal tragedy and the metaphorical significance vividly and directly. All of Pelecanos' books, whether set before or after King's death, somehow have been pointing to this moment, and he makes the most of it."—Booklist (starred review)
