"Pelecanos' prose sizzles with urban street argot and pops with the author's geographic knowledge of D.C.'s underbelly...With its breakneck speed, simmering tensions and flawed but charming protagonists, Hell to Pay shows Pelecanos at the top of his craft, and will leave readers begging for the next hard-boiled episode of this thrilling series." San Francisco Chronicle
