Pelecanos first novel published in 1992 when he was 35 the first of the three Nick Stefanos novels the others being Nick s Trip 1993 and Down By the River Where the Dead Men Go 1995I can t really compare this book to the others that I ve read very well since I don t have access to any of those books being on vacation However it does seem to be a first novel based on no than my remembrances of the polish of those other booksOne thing that surprised me was the first person narrator Nick Stefanos This may be the way this series of novels is written I d actually read the third one but didn t remember And indeed Pelecanos did choose the first person for these three novels But his third novel Shoedog written in 1994 was written in the conventional third person and after Down By the River again first person Pelecanos stuck with the third person in all his succeeding novels as far as I knowRegardless the writing here is effective and very much in the style which Pelecanos has made popular to fans of his DC crime stories gritty dialogue gritty though infreuent sex scenes fairly explicit violence though not saturated with violence and not gratuitous and freuent references to pop music of the era which by the way is 1988 or perhaps a year or two later during the term of George Bush I at any rateStefanos as the first of Pelecanos heroes or perhaps anti heroes is a little less likeable than some of his later creations perhaps because he has a serious problem with alcohol and a less serious one with drugs These problems by no mean make him any less of an interesting indeed almost riveting character Being a somewhat darker character than later Pelecanos good guys Stefanos probably pushes this series of stories into the noir branch of crime fiction than I think is normal for Pelecanos books The later ones although sharing all the characteristics mentioned in the previous paragraph have a distinctly positive outlook on life It can still be very tough in the inner city but the outcomes of these later stories might be satisfying to most readers and are certainly less fatalisticAnother aspect of this first novel that struck me as different from later ones was references to film here In fact one of the sentences in the book that made me laugh out loud was this one talking about the film section of City Paper that Stefanos is reading while eating lunch Joel E Siegel the most intelligent film critic in town who made waste of the Post s hapless duo the gushing Hal Hinson and the unreadable Rita Kempley had reviewed a couple documentaries Talk about getting in digs at a couple real life film reviewers in a work of fiction Siegel too is a real film critic or was prior to his death in 2004 The Final say not to be missed by Pelecanos fans and can certainly be read by newbies It is also possible however to start with one of the later Pelecanos novels for example The Big Blowdown 1996 or Right As Rain 2001 and then try this earlier series later as I happened to have done Previous review To Kill a MockingbirdNext review Riders of the Purple SageMore recent review History of Mathematics Carl BoyerPrevious library review In the Lake of the Woods O BrienNext library review Nick s Trip Pelecanos FENG SHUI: Les couleurs Yin et Yang out sales and shady deals are his life When a stockroo.

Ah the 90s When people still went into stores and bought stuff like chumps instead of just clicking a mouse to spend all our money But back then when I hit up an electronics store for a new VCR or Discman I don t remember being able to hire a private detective at the same timeNick Stefanos worked his way up through the sales ranks of Nutty Nathan s to an office position doing their advertising but the job is feeling hollow and he s got a nagging young boss on his ass So when he gets a call asking for help from the grandfather of a young man named Jimmy that worked at Nathan s who has gone missing Nick takes the opportunity to do a little bullshitting that allows him to get back out on the sales floor of one of their stores while regularly slipping off to hunt for JimmyWhile Nick once did some process serving he s not really trained as a detective so apparently he grabbed a James Crumley novel for guidance because his investigating techniue seems to consist of a lot of running around while drunk and high As Nick tries to track down Jimmy we come to realize that he s a guy seriously rethinking his lifeGeorge Pelecanos first novel is remarkably self assured and polished He takes plenty of time to let us get to know Nick and where his head is at Whether it s giving us the lowdown on the shady sales tricks the electronics salesmen engage in or what s happening in early 90s Washington DC music scene Pelecanos shows remarkable patience in letting his story unfold but still delivers an economic crime novel of less than 300 pagesMy only real complaint is that there are two characters named Kim a female who was running around with Jimmy and the Korean owner of a small diner that Nick freuents That led to a couple of confusing momentsI ve been a Pelecanos fan for years and read most of his later stuff but for some reason had never gone back and checked out the Nick Stefanos books That s a situation I will continue to uickly correct
