Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE TURNAROUND

"Yet another gem of urban noir....A beautifully written and thought-provoking novel of crime, friendship, aging and redemption."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[Pelecanos] tells a tight, suspenseful story. And he packs enough of a wallop to put THE TURNAROUND on an express bus of its own."--Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Pelecanos does what few, if any, American writers do: He tells the truth. Twain told the truth; Faulkner toyed with the truth; Hemingway told his version of the truth, and Chandler certainly told a cold, cynical truth. Pelecanos's truth is from deep in the heart, from places where red blood cells know more than all the sweet, heady words truth usually hides behind."--Randy Michael Signor, Chicago Sun-Times
"George Pelecanos is one of the most literary of America's crime writers, and like most of his books, THE TURNAROUND is more than mere entertainment. This beautifully written novel, rich with carefully wrought characters, is both a fine crime story and a thoughtful exploration of race relations in the lives of ordinary Americans."--Bruce DeSilva, Associated Press
