RARA-AVIS: RE: Soul Circus

I read _Soul Circus_ last week and while I enjoyed it, I couldn't help but feel that there was a certain sameness to the book that has been there in a lot of Pelecanos' recent work. He's almost writing the same book, over and over--It's not as bad as James Lee Burke yet, but he's getting there. _Soul Circus_ in particular was almost indistinguishable from _Hell to Pay_, though since it is largely a direct continuation of that story, I guess that's to be expected. I love these books, I love the characters and the settings, don't get me wrong, but I'd really like to see something new and different next time.
