really liked it
Read in July, 2009

One aspect of the story involves a number of serial murders, but this is no , Silence of the Lambs. I could see how someone expecting that would be disappointed with The Night Gardener, but for me, Pelecanos' realistic portrayal of urban crime is far more fascinating. Plus, I still get a kick out of reading that a character lives just down the street from me. One of our cats even came from the shelter across from the crime scene at the community garden- let's hear it for the Washington Animal Rescue League!
