GEORGE PELECANOS A Firing Offense Nick’s Trip Down by the River where the Dead Men Go Three razor-sharp crime novels from one of the acclaimed writers of The Wire. Nick Stefanos is part-time PI, part-time drunk. His journeys through the shady underbelly of Washington DC on the twisting trail of crime lords, drug dealers and murderers are imbued with incredible dialogue and flawless plotting. Stephen King has referred to George Pelecanos as ‘perhaps the greatest living crime writer’ and he has long been heir to Elmore Leonard’s throne with his terrific command of dialogue and story. This trilogy maps the early steps of a crimewriting master. George Pelecanos wrote and produced for the The Wire, which saw him nominated for an EMMY, and The Pacific. He is currently writing for Treme and is executive producer on Boardwalk Empire. He has written eighteen novels.
