I picked up THE WAY HOME by George Pelecanos yesterday and have not been able to put it down since. His new novel straddles the line of literature and crime fiction, beautifully written with compelling characters.
Also released this week is Michael Connelly's THE SCARECROW. His latest novel features newspaper writer Jack McEvoy, the same protagonist from THE POET and one of my favorites.
If you need a quick read over the weekend, and you're into e-books, check out SERIAL by Chicago author Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. This slim novella tells the story of two serial killers and what happens when they find each other. Lots of violence and twisted characters, but grips you from beginning to end. Best part; the book is free.
