On the other hand, it's the book that got me hooked on Pelecanos. I'd avoided reading anything of his because I didn't think they sounded like
"my kind of books." I basically grabbed SHOEDOG from the library shelf out of frustration at not finding anything I was actually looking for. Once I started reading it, I blew right through it and immediately went in search of his other books.

Different strokes, I guess.
