Description
Gus Ramone is "good police," a former Internal Affairs officer now working homicide for D.C.'s violent crime unit, in this standalone thriller following Drama City. When a local teenager named Asa is found murdered in a local community garden, the scene unearths intense memories of a case Ramone worked as a beat cop 20 years earlier, when he and his partner Dan "Doc" Holiday helped a legendary detective named T.C. Cook to investigate a series of murders—the police dubbed them the Night Gardener killings—that were never solved. The new case draws the three men together once again, on a grim mission to finish the work that has haunted them for years. 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.

"Like Drama City it is heart-in-your-throat gripping from beginning to end. The Night Gardener is another of Mr. Pelecanos's beautifully delineated moral tales, filled with gut-wrenching turns of fate and razor-sharp, boisterously vivid characters."—NYTimes
