9780753822111: The Night Gardener

Gus Ramone is "good police," a former Internal Affairs investigator now working homicide for the city's Violent Crime branch. His new case involves the death of a local teenager named Asa whose body has been found in a local community garden.The murder unearths intense memories of a case Ramone worked as a patrol cop twenty years earlier, when he and his partner, Dan "Doc" Holiday, assisted a legendary detective named T. C. Cook. The series of murders, all involving local teenage victims, was never solved. In the years since, Holiday has left the force under a cloud of morals charges, and now finds work as a bodyguard and driver. Cook has retired, but he has never stopped agonizing about the "Night Gardener" killings.The new case draws the three men together on a grim mission to finish the work that has haunted them for years. All the love, regret, and anger that once burned between them comes rushing back, and old ghosts walk once more as the men try to lay to rest the monster who has stalked their dreams. Bigger and even more unstoppable than his previous thrillers, George Pelecanos achieves in THE NIGHT GARDENER what his brilliant career has been building toward: a novel that is a perfect union of suspense, character, and unstoppable fate.

About the Author :

George Pelecanos is the author of several highly praised and bestselling novels, including The Cut, What It Was, The Way Home, The Turnaround, and The Night Gardener. He is also an independent-film producer, an essayist, and the recipient of numerous international writing awards. He was a producer and Emmy-nominated writer for The Wire and currently writes for the acclaimed HBO series Treme. He lives in Maryland.

From AudioFile :

A pervert with a taste for palindromes is murdering teens with names like Eve and Asa. At night he dumps their violated bodies in public gardens. George Pelecanos has a melodious tough-guy voice. His prose is witty with slang. The cops talk cop, the kids talk ghetto. And so this book is a pleasure to hear. The writer/narrator, however, does not try to give us different accents for different players. This might not have been a problem in a full-length recording. In an abridgment that includes two time periods and features a large cast, the thread is easily lost. But then it all sounds so good, you don't mind listening to it again. And again.

Description du livre Orion Publishing Co, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A great novel from one of America s finest literary crime writers.They never found the killer.All they knew, back in the winter of 1985, was that someone was taking teenagers, killing them and leaving their abused bodies in public parks. Three victims in all, with no link between them except a oddity of their names. They read the same back-to-front - Otto, Ava and lastly Eve. A lot has happened in the twenty years since. Detectives Gus Ramone and Dan Holiday - two of the leads on the case - have pursued very different paths. Gus has climbed to the heights of Detective Sergeant and built himself a reputation as a very good cop, whilst Dan has been drummed out of the force - his sleaze finally getting too much for his superiors. However, their paths are about to cross again. A boy named Asa - a close friend of Gus s teenage son - has been found in the public park, his skull shattered by gunfire. Now it seems that both men are once again in the path of this disturbed serial killer.THE NIGHT GARDENER is George Pelecanos s stunning crime thriller - the story of two very different men united by the maliciousness of a deadly attacker.
