MAN WHO CAME UPTOWN


MAN WHO CAME UPTOWN

GEORGE PELECANOS    Book Number: 86332    Product format: Hardback

By the author of 'The Wire' here is an economical, rhythmic and angrily political piece of hard-boiled fiction. Anna Byrne is a prison librarian. In a place where hope is hard to find, the power of books can be a light in the dark and for some of the prisoners, her work is life-changing. Like Michael Hudson, her best student, who's been awaiting trial before his sudden release. He is relieved to be free, to 'come uptown' as they say, but can't shake off the question why is the witness who put him behind bars suddenly refusing to testify? There's a man who has the answer, but he wants something first. Phil Ornazian is a private investigator moonlighting as a criminal. He's not exactly proud of it, but times are hard in Washington DC. People have to change to survive or die trying. But everything comes at a price and sooner or later, everyone has to pay. American crime writing at its finest. 264pp.
