The primary victim this time is a rising star on Derek Stranges Pee Wee football team. In this city where making T-shirts for bereaved families of young murder victims is a full-time business, the boy is an accidental victim in a war between drug dealers and lowlifes. Private investigator Strange, in his second George Pelecanos outing (after 2001s Right as Rain), has seen enough of this face of D.C.

His relationship to his secretary/lover Janine sputters in the wake of increasing, irrational infidelities. His moral compass swings wildly as he tracks the killers, Garfield Death Potter and friends. Not knowing if he can be satisfied seeing these men in prison, Strange contemplates other brands of justice.For fans of Pelecanos, all the usual trappings are here: the hyper-real dialogue, the bloody street fights, the immersion in classic R&B, and the most current music on the streets.

Pelecanos does stumble in a few places. His narrative becomes wooden at times, and his plot features a couple of glaring coincidences (e.g., Strange just happens to jot down the license plate of a car that later turns out to be the one driven by the murderers).

But Pelecanos is the real deal in noir. If Dennis Lehane owns Boston and Michael Connelly is master of L.A., Pelecanos is dark D.C.s intimate chronicler. --Patrick OKelley
