<<Pelecanos's "The Big Blowdown" is a steaming pot of unreadable PW. One of the most agonizing books ever written, which is a feat, in and of itself, I suppose. Reading this book is like having your brain drawn out through your nose. Or having all your teeth pulled on the same day. Don't bother with it. It's on par with any of the dreadfully dull Lehanes.>>

Wow. Well, since I've enjoyed all the lehane's, I guess I'll run out and read the Big Blowdown next..... heh.
