9780753827116: The Way Home

How far will a father go to save his son? A page-turning story of rebellion, greed, and the high price of a second chance from 'one of the finest crime writers in America' THE TIMES.

Hidden beneath the floorboards in a house he's remodeling, Christopher Flynn discovers something very tempting-and troubling. Summoning every bit of maturity and every lesson he's learned the hard way, Chris leaves what he found where he found it and tells his job partner to forget it, too. Knowing trouble when he sees it-and walking the other way-is a habit Chris is still learning.

Chris's father, Thomas Flynn, runs the family business where Chris and his friends have found work. Thomas is just getting comfortable with the idea that his son is grown, working, and on the right path at last. Then one day Chris doesn't show up for work-and his father knows deep in his bones that danger has found him. Although he wishes it weren't so, he also knows that no parent can protect a child from all the world's evils. Sometimes you have to let them find their own way home.

Recensione:

With pace, punch and depth to spare, The Way Home will satisfy old admirers and hook the newcomers. (Boyd Tonkin INDEPENDENT)

A typically assured performance . . . notable for Pelecanos's mastery of teen talk ( SUNDAY TIMES)

His pitiless concentration on how minor decisions end up making huge differences, and how two generations of a family try, and fail, to understand each other, makes this a riveting read ( GUARDIAN)

'Achieves a gripping balance between social comment and the suspense of a great thriller' ( UNCUT)

A masterly study of fathers and sons. Pelecanos, who worked on the TV show The Wire, has a gift for characterisation and location - in this case Washington DC. The result is that rare thing: a gripping thriller that is also intensely moving ( LONDON EVENING STANDARD)

Who is the best crime writer working today? I can think of a raft of serious contenders for second place, but in my view the winner by a clear head has to be George Pelecanos. (Simon Shaw MAIL ON SUNDAY)
