If you're a resident of D.C., then this book is a must have.

It's written by one of the many talented writers of the hit HBO show, The Wire, and it tells the story of a returning Marine set to do a high-risk job in the setting of Washington D.C.

George P. Pelecanos definitely did his research in this book as many of the city's landscapes, history, and people are portrayed in accurate detail.

I got the book a while ago, and I'm halfway done with it. If you're into mystery-thrillers, set in an urban backdrop, then you should pick this one up.

Never read any of his stuff, but heard him at a reading once. Fascinating guy. He has a perspective on DC few have.
