Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The cast is wonderfully varied, yet Pelecanos also manages to capture the essence of most of his characters with just a few descriptive licks. It's Strange, however, who steals the show. He's a mature man with a highly defined sense of who he is--an aging private eye who knows that his best weapons these days are his wits and wisdom....A new Pelecanos series hero is big news in the noir world." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Derek Strange and Terry Quinn are ex-cops turned private detectives in Washington, DC. Hired to investigate the death of an off-duty black police officer at the hands of a white policeman, they are faced with the institutionalized racism of the nation's most dangerous police force.
