Staff Reviews


Native Mississippian and veteran Washington Post journalist, Neely Tucker, shines in this debut novel. When the teenage daughter of a powerful Washington, D.C. judge is found dead, three local black kids are quickly charged with the crime. Reporter Sully Carter sees a larger story revolving around three missing women and a dead prostitute, all from the same neighborhood. Based on the Princeton Place murders that took place in the late 1990s, Tucker delivers a taut thriller with the grit of George Pelecanos and the aplomb of Pete Hamill.
