Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

Praise for THE DOUBLE:

"It's astonishing all the good stuff Pelecanos can pack into one unpretentious book that make the story so rich." Marilyn Stasio, "New York Times Book Review""
"The author laces his story with vivid descriptions of Washington's changing urban landscape. The writing is taut, the violence is graphic and the characters are so well-drawn that they step off the page and into your life. "The Double" is as good as it gets." Bruce DeSilva, "Associated Press""

Praise for THE CUT:

"The writing is spare; the dialogue rings with authenticity; and walking D.C.'s mean streets with Lucas is the next best thing to being there. Easily the best crime novel I've read this year." Hallie Ephron, "Boston Globe""

"Pelecanos at his best...The Cut crackles with energy." Dan DeLuca, "Philadelphia Inquirer""

Praise for THE MARTINI SHOT:
"one of [Pelecanos'] freshest and most original recent works."
Janet Maslin, ""New York Times """

Praise for THE MARTINI SHOT:
"one of [Pelecanos'] freshest and most original recent works."
Janet Maslin, New York Times "

"Here we see what makes Pelecanos' best writing so resonant: the sense of longing, of miscommunication, the way love does not enlarge us but rather makes us small." David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times "

"His writing is properly hard-boiled, his heroes are attractively flawed and his villains leave trails of blood from here to yonder. But even at his most gripping...he sets his aims high, bringing a sociologist's concerns to the street -level dramas that play out in his hometown of Washington, D.C."
Lloyd Sachs, Chicago Tribune "

"fast, dark, and dangerous...The gritty world [Pelecanos] knows so well provides ample fodder for the vignettes in this book, the characters are strong and the dialogue is sharp. The collection is a solid read for anyone who's a fan of crime writing and especially Pelecanos' work." Tim Alamenciak, Toronto Star"

"bracing and witty...an inventive study of deception and fakery--one of Pelecanos's best works, at any length." Mark Athitakis, The Washington Post"

"serves as an introduction to his dark, unblinking vision and a reason to stay until the night's bitter end. Don't miss this collection, a must-have for newcomers and longtime fans alike." Joe Hartlaub, Book Reporter"

Praise for THE DOUBLE:
"It's astonishing all the good stuff Pelecanos can pack into one unpretentious book that make the story so rich." Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review"

"Pungent, funny dialogue...believable black-and-white friendships...outstanding scene-setting...The Double is fast-paced, its villains feel fresh...Call me a hard-core Pelecanos junkie." Jocelyn McClurg, USA TODAY"
"The author laces his story with vivid descriptions of Washington's changing urban landscape. The writing is taut, the violence is graphic and the characters are so well-drawn that they step off the page and into your life. The Double is as good as it gets." Bruce DeSilva, Associated Press"

Praise for THE CUT:
"The writing is spare; the dialogue rings with authenticity; and walking D.C.'s mean streets with Lucas is the next best thing to being there. Easily the best crime novel I've read this year." Hallie Ephron, Boston Globe"

"Pelecanos at his best...The Cut crackles with energy." Dan DeLuca, Philadelphia Inquirer"

"Every time I read one of George Pelecanos's novels, I'm left a little awed...The guy's a national treasure." Dennis Lehane"

"A lean, swift, atmospheric detective novel...The characters-good-hearted, ill-intentioned or in between-are shown by Mr. Pelecanos with loving clarity, free of cliche, condescension or illusion. Spero Lucas is an engagingly layered character...The Cut is a resourceful and notably original work the delivers the thrills of an action movie and the poignancy of fine storytelling." Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal"
