LoveReading View on Soul Circus

Derek Strange is back in his third thriller. Many have said Pelecanos really knows his stuff when talking about the streets of Washington D.C and the description he gives and insight definitely hit the mark to show the gangland mentality and violence going on. A good gritty crime novel.

Soul Circus Synopsis

Private Investigator Derek Strange and his partner, Terry Quinn, are running a PI business in the seedy underbelly of Washington DC are approached by a young man asking them to find his girlfriend who has gone missing. And so Strange and Quinn find her.

Just another day? Not quite. In the grimy underworld inhabited by Strange, nothing is that simple. For Strange and Quinn's efforts have led to a young mother being brutally murdered - a devastating discovery that causes them both to question the morality by which they live. And yet at the same time they need to continue the search for another missing girl, a teenage runaway who shows up in a porn video. And who hasn't been seen since.

Bleak, gritty and moving, SOUL CIRCUS superbly brings to life the devastating story of life and death in Washington's black ghettos.
