Topic - George Pelecanos
Who knows what ideas lurk in the hearts of crime writers? In a conversation with Ed Burns, his writing and producing partner on HBO's "The Wire" and "Treme," thriller-master George Pelecanos was pumping Mr. Burns, a cop decades ago, about the relationship between the police and the underworld in the 1970s, one of Mr. Pelecanos' favorite eras.
In this, his 17th novel, George Pelecanos proves once again that his knowledge of Washington, D.C., its streets, its neighborhoods and, especially, a certain stratum of its people is unparalleled. Also as usual, he writes like an angel - an angel with dirty hands, but an angel nonetheless.
There is much to recommend about "The Way Home," Washington writer George Pelecanos' latest novel.
