>I read the latest Pelecanos over the weekend and really enjoyed it.

I recently finished Drop City as well and thought it was terrific.

I do think it is a book that someone reading Pelecanos for the first time might read and think "what's the big deal?" because it doesn't have the manic plot momentum of some of his previous books. In this regard it is like Shame the Devil, but without the robbery/car crash jumpstarting it.

What it does have is another look into the world Pelecanos has created, which I love. It's all one book by now. Looking forward to the next chapter.
