Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Pelecanos is not afraid of larger social issues, such as the viciousness of racism and its brutal effect. Derek Strange confronts all these things in his passage through those rough-and-tumble parts of the city that Pelecanos invokes with such spirit and such keen attention to detail, imbuing them all with an atmosphere of danger both moral and physical. That's at the heart of why this book is so compelling and such a pleasure to read." - Craig Nova 02/24/2002

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"The big boys -- Elmore Leonard, Michael Connelly and James Ellroy -- have some new, lean company in their crime writers' club: Washington, D.C., denizen George P. Pelecanos." - Mark Luce 03/10/2002

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"HELL TO PAY is a terrific thriller, a rip-roaring read. It is also a mine of information about cultures and subcultures in our land, specifically in Washington, D.C., where its action detonates an anthropology of black, brown and white lore, a topography of investigative activities, a geology of street and off-the-street crime in bombed-out-looking venues where handguns are snagged as easily as milk, where two out of three murders go unsolved, where politicians can be bought and sold as easily as T-shirts featuring computer-generated photographs of murder victims." - Eugen Weber 04/21/2002

Houston Chronicle
"For all its violence and its unblinking look at what is wrong with significant pieces of our society, HELL TO PAY is not, in the end, a depressing novel. There are strong themes of moral accountability, redemption and (almost surprisingly) hope. It takes readers on a tense, sometimes disturbing, emotional ride, but at the end they will want to get right back in line to do it all again." 04/16/2002
