1 Pelecanos, George P. Hell To Pay / Right As Rain
New York, NY, U.S.A. Little, Brown & Company 2002 0446611328 / 9780446611329 First Edition Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) SIGNED by the Author
Uncorrected Proofs. Fine in glossy pictorial wraps, large trade-sized (pb). 342 + 332pps. There is a very mild bump to one end of the spine, otherwise as new: clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. SIGNED TWICE by the author -- without further inscription -- once on either title-page. This is an advance copy of both titles, bound back-to-back.

"...'Hell To Pay': Derek Strange and Terry Quinn, a team of investigators, are hired to find a fourteen-year-old girl who's run away from her home in the suburbs. It's easy for Strange and Quinn to learn that the girl is now working as a prostitute in one of D.C.'s most brutal neighborhoods. Getting her to leave is harder. The two ex-cops think they know this world -- but nothing in their experience has prepared them for the vengeance of Worldwide Wilson, the ruthless operator whose territory they are intruding upon. Their mission is fractured by a violent criminal act against a young player from the neighborhood football team that Strange coaches. Tracking down the perpetrators becomes a point of honor for Strange and Quinn, and their investigation leads them deep inside the city's labyrinth of crime -- and back, again, to the lethal Worldwide Wilson.
'Right As Rain': Derek Strange is an ex-cop who now runs his own private detective agency. The mother of a young police officer killed by another cop hires him to clear up the lingering doubts surrounding her son's death. Although Terry Quinn, the other cop, has been cleared in the official investigation, his guilt torments him. After Strange interviews him, Quinn joins the investigation, even though in part he is investigating himself and whether his own prejudices led him to pull the trigger. Strange and Quinn seek their answers in the darkest sectors of Washington, D.C., where racism and ruthless capitalism create a lawless world..."

2 Pelecanos, George P. King Suckerman : A Novel
Boston Little, Brown & Company 1997 0-316-69590-4 / 9780316695909 First Edition, First Printing 
[1997]. Very Good+ in a Near Fine dustjacket. Purple boards. The spine is stamped in white. Quarto. 264pps. There are a few bumps to the boards and a remainder mark, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has very light wear at the extremities; the original price is intact.

"...'King Suckerman' is a thriller that weaves the blaxploitation films, the drug deals, the soul music, and the racial tensions that defined the seventies into a story of natural-born killers and two men who risk everything to bring them down. Dimitri Karras and Marcus Clay are old friends whose affection transcends the barriers of race. Clay is a Vietnam vet trying to make a go of his own small business, while Karras is drifting, playing pickup basketball and supporting himself with small-time drug dealing. When Karras takes Clay with him to make a buy from a new supplier, they cross paths with Wilton Cooper -- and enter a world where merciless, unpredictable violence is the only certainty. Cooper cuts a swath of bloody mayhem that leads straight to Karras's door, and Karras has the battle of a lifetime to keep his walk on the wild side from destroying his entire world..."
