Revue de presse :

"A crime novel, yes, but the talented Pelecanos shoes it out of its comfort zone. . . . Redemption the hard way, well-crafted and deeply felt." (Kirkus (starred review))

"Nobody can teach George Pelecanos anything he doesn't already know about the inherent drama in the father-son dynamic." (New York Times Marilyn Stasio)

"THE WAY HOME remains true to its titular purpose; as a result, the structure is perhaps less weighted toward a classic narrative arc and more toward the journey itself. As with his last two novels, Pelecanos demonstrates that redemption, if it comes at all, is hard-won." (Los Angeles Times Sarah Weinman)

"In George Pelecanos's THE WAY HOME, it's the little things that matter...he's fascinated by the minor decisions that end up making a huge difference in the long run, and the ripples that result when good but imperfect people try to do the right thing-even when they're not exactly sure what the right thing is." (Washington Post Kevin Allman)

"Between the wonderful dialogue, the characters who unpeel like onions before your eyes, and action that punches from the shoulder and hip - the very technique Thomas Flynn taught young Chris - Mr. Pelecanos brings things off with bravura." (Washington Times John Weisman)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Christopher Flynn is trying to get it right. After years of trouble and rebellion that enraged his father and nearly cost him his life, he has a steady job in his father's company, he's seriously dating a woman he respects, and, aside from the distrust that lingers in his father's eyes, his mistakes are firmly in the past.

One day on the job, Chris and his partner come across a temptation almost too big to resist. Chris does the right thing, but old habits and instincts rise to the surface, threatening this new-found stability with sudden treachery and violence. With his father and his most trusted friends, he takes one last chance to blast past the demons trying to pull him back.

Like Richard Price or William Kennedy, Pelecanos pushes his characters to the extremes, their redemption that much sweeter because it is so hard fought. Pelecanos has long been celebrated for his unerring ability to portray the conflicts men feel as they search and struggle for power and love in a world that is often harsh and unforgiving but can ultimately be filled with beauty.
