Turnaround

Staff Pick

Great crime fiction challenges us; not just our armchair detective skills, but our notions of justice, our assumptions of societal norms. The Turnaround is great crime fiction. Suspenseful, yes, almost painfully so, but not in a heart-stopping, breathless-action sort of way — the suspense and drama are more heart-stretching. I followed this story with a sense of dread, knowing no good could come from the inevitable showdown. And yet, George Pelecanos reveals himself to be a crime writer concerned not just with the evil in the heart of man, but the goodness that resides in spite of it.
Recommended by Lori M., Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a hot summer afternoon in 1972, three teenagers drove into an unfamiliar neighborhood and six lives were altered forever.

Thirty five years later, one survivor of that day reaches out to another, opening a door that could lead to salvation. But another survivor is now out of prison, looking for reparation in any form he can find it.

THE TURNAROUND takes us on a journey from the rock-and-soul streets of the '70s to the changing neighborhoods of D.C. today, from the diners and auto garages of the city to the inside of Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, where wounded men and women have returned to the world in a time of war. A novel of fathers and sons, wives and husbands, loss, victory and violent redemption, THE TURNAROUND is another compelling, highly charged novel from George Pelecanos, the best crime novelist in America. -Oregonian
