Book Description


See all titles by George Pelecanos.

"This is a superior crime novel from one of the genre's outstanding writers." -Library Journal

"Written in rich, observant prose, the novel is a brilliant study of a society tearing apart as racial tensions escalate after the King killing. No wonder some observers have pointed to Pelecanos as the kind of thriller writer who should be nominated for a National Book Award." -Publishers Weekly

Dennis Lehane has called George Pelecanos "one of the best crime novelists alive." Hard Revolution is a rich, dramatic, totally engrossing story of two brothers, one a rookie police officer, one a recently returned Vietnam veteran, caught up in the chaos that engulfed D. C. in 1968, when riots followed the assassination of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Derek Strange is his family's straight arrow, but his older brother Dennis has always had a harder time. Home from the war and in several varieties of trouble, Dennis is in danger of making one bad decision too many. While Derek tries to be there for Dennis, no amount of brotherly love can save Dennis from Alvin Jones, a local drug dealer who draws him into his web. An apocalyptic gun battle and an impossible decision collide in the electrifying climax of the most powerful book yet from George Pelecanos, a novelist who "writes with intelligence and complexity, as well as with a sober recognition of the evil at large in the world." (Washington Post)
