    Description

    From writer and producer of HBO's The Wire and The Deuce comes one of the most critically acclaimed crime novels of the year.

    Anna Byrne is a jailhouse librarian. In a place where hope is hard to find, the power of books can be a light in the dark. For some of the prisoners, her work is life-changing.

    Like Michael Hudson, her best student, who's been locked up awaiting trial before his sudden release. He's relieved to be free - to 'come uptown', as they say - but can't shake the question: why is the witness who put him behind bars suddenly refusing to testify? There's a man who might have the answer, but he wants something first. 

    Phil Ornazian is a private investigator who moonlights as a petty criminal. He's not exactly proud of it, but times are hard in Washington, DC. People have to change to survive or die trying.

    But everything comes at a price, and at some point everyone has to pay....

    Commentaires

    "He is, quite simply, among America's finest crime writers. This latest story does not disappoint...lyrical, beautifully observed and constantly surprising, it is a delight." (Daily Mail)

    "In his first novel for five years, Pelecanos demonstrates why he deserves to be regarded as one of the best American crime novelists... It's a moving tale, beautifully told." (The Times)

    What a shame!

    I find the story in itself not great but okay. However large bits of the narrative (some dialogue excluded) seem to be read like

    by a computer generated voice giving each and every subject in a sentence the same kind of emphasis. In addition those bits and pieces are read at such a slow speed, that I had to adjust the speed control to 1.4 otherwise I would have fallen asleep. To cut a long story short I will never ever return to an audiobook made by that producer.
