|Right As Rain by George Pelecanos|
Next in the book review pile is another great crime novel by George Pelecanos this is another in the long running Derek strange series of books and would have been written just before he got involved in writing the Wire. As ever this is a fast moving book set in Washington where a couple of Private dicks are hired to find who killed an off duty black cop. In among the exploration of the racial segregation in the police force and the assumptions made that guaranteed minimal investigation and cover up where the order of the day. If you have read a few of Georges books you'll have a good idea of how this one is going and as ever there are enough twists that you don't ever guess everything that will happen. I liked the look of this book so much I managed to buy it twice before I got round to reading it and have already given the other copy away....
