RE: RARA-AVIS: Hard-boiled music

I know some have criticized Pelecanos for the vast number of musical citations and allusions in his books, but, for me, I think they're a big part of what drew me in to his work in the first place. Nothing works quite like music to ground characters in a specific time and place, even moreso than other pop cultural allusions, I think.
