01.01.08 This makes a pretty great final novel to read of Pelecanos'. It's kind of a combination between his first three Nick Stefanos books and his later three Karras/Clay books in a multi-faceted wrap-up. All the baggage and history behind pretty much every character really loads every page. I really enjoyed this one (no surprise) and was surprised by how much I missed the guys at The Spot. So let's see. My top 5 Pelecanos books 1. Drama City 2. Shoedog 3. The Night Gardener 4. Shame the Devil 5. Hard Revolution Looking back, the books I liked the least were the Strange books. Maybe that's because I read them first or maybe because whatever... He's definitely an author that grows on you though. I can now count myself as an official fan.
