When Thomas Flynn leaves his son, 17 year old Chris, at Pine Ridge, a juvenile prison near Washington, D.C., his heart is broken but his mind is made up: Chris will have to pay for the mistakes he's made. Inside, Chris is exposed to kids from a different D.C. than the comfortable one he knew. A decade later, Chris and the friends he made at Pine Ridge seem reformed. Chris has a job, thanks to his father, a girlfriend, and his own apartment. But when he and the others are inadvertently caught up in a burglary, old habits and worse instincts rise to the surface, threatening this new-found stability with sudden treachery and violence.

About the Author:

George Pelecanos is an independent film producer, an essayist, the recipient of numerous international writing awards, a producer and an Emmy-nominated writer on the HBO hit series "The Wire," and the author of a bestselling series of novels set in and around Washington, D.C.

From AudioFile:

George Pelecanos rips a life, actually several lives, from a Washington, DC, ghetto and lays them bare for everyone to see--and understand. Christopher Flynn is a confused white kid with a chip on his shoulder and a bleak future. Despite the odds, he changes his life for the better after a stint in juvenile hall. But trouble comes knocking when a friend finds a bag of money. Reader Dion Graham pulls the listener into the story with his earnest delivery and streetwise patter. Graham gives each character a distinctive voice, even managing to talk like a white kid trying to talk like a black kid. His work is as engaging and powerful as the book, a perfect pairing. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
