really liked it
bookshelves: new-york, crime, grown-up-books
Read in March, 2009

According to the KCLS blog, the author wrote some episodes of The Wire. The Wire! And, friends, this is just as absorbing and trenchant. It made me slightly afraid to visit the Lower East Side when I visit New York (I mean, not really, but kinda). Even though it's not a whodunit, it still grips you, keeps you guessing. I couldn't help picturing Matty as McNulty. And he even stuck the name Stinkum in there! Awesome.
