George Pelecanos is the author of several highly praised and bestselling novels, including The Cut, What It Was, The Way Home, The Turnaround, and The Night Gardener. He is also an independent-film producer, an essayist, and the recipient of numerous international writing awards. He was a producer and Emmy-nominated writer for The Wire and currently writes for the acclaimed HBO series Treme. He lives in Maryland.From AudioFile:
A body is found in a garden in Washington, and the teenaged victim's first name spells the same forwards as back. For certain members of the police force, both past and present, the circumstances recall an unsolved string of murders twenty years earlier. But while homicide is the putative plot of Pelecanos's work, his real interests are far more universal: the consequences of one's choices, good and bad. Richard Davidson's voice is all gravel, the better to achieve the gravitas and ruefulness that Pelecanos brings to bear in this somber novel in which three cops, two rookies with different characters and aspirations and a legendary detective--all summoned to one of the early killings--are unexpectedly reunited after the last.

Book Description Little Brown & Co, Boston, 2006. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st US Edition.. When the body of a local teenager is found in a community garden, homicide detective Gus Ramone relives intense memories of a case he worked twenty years earlier. When he was still a rookie, Ramone and his partner Dan Doc Holiday assisted legendary detective T.C. Cook as he investigated a series of killings involving young victims left overnight in neighborhood parks. The killer, dubbed, the Night Gardener, was never caught. Since then, Holiday has left the force under a cloud of morals charges; he now works as a bodyguard and driver, taunted by his dreams of what he might have been. Cook retired, but he has never stopped agonizing about the unsolved case. Ramone is good police, working as a homicide detective for the citys violent-crime division. He is also a devoted husband and father, and his teenage son, Diego, was a friend of the most recent victim, a boy named Asa. Could the Night Gardener be on the prowl again? Asas death draws the three men together on a mission to finish the work that has haunted them for years. For T.C. Cook, it means solving one of the few cases that eluded him in his distinguished career. For Doc Holiday, the Night Gardener case is one last chance to prove - to Cook, to Ramone, and to himself - what kind of police officer he once was. For Gus Ramone, catching the killer means not only doing his job but knowing that his son will not be the next victim. The regret, anger, and fierce sense of purpose that once burned between them come rushing back as they race to lay to rest the monster who has stalked their dreams. Seller Inventory # 21753
