Effortless — 48 weeks ago
Pelecanos’s storytelling prowess has long been second to none and he continues his peerless writing with this tale observing a criminal force of nature, a remorseless spree killer out to make a name for himself and the men who join together to try to stop him. Every character is well developed, foibles and all, the dialog is Elmore Leonard sharp, the plot finely tuned. What can I say, he’s long been in the zone and, well, it seems that every word he writes should be read and re-read. Simply effortless.
