>"A Firing Offense" by George P. Pelecanos
I'm reading "A Firing Offense" right now, and there is
definitely a heavy drinking element to it. My understanding
is that protagonist Nick Stefanos' drinking gets
progressively worse through the trilogy.
To quote Booklist: "Give bartender Nick Stefanos a bottle of
booze, a pack of smokes, and some good lovin', and he's a
happy man. Nick lives for the first and last drinks of the
day and all the drinks between, but once in a while, he comes
out of his alcoholic fog and does some detecting work. After
a stupor-inducing night with a bottle of Jack Daniels,
Stefanos comes to on the bank of the Anacostia River and
hears a murder being committed just yards away..."
"Thank God we don't get all the government we pay for."
- Will Rogers
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the
government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the
government of others?"
- Thomas Jefferson
