A Giveaway for the Guys! "The Way Home" by George Pelecanos


Here's a giveaway that the guys will enjoy! George Pelecanos writes detective fiction and other manly stories, as well as being one of the writers of the TV series, "The Wire."

His latest book is "The Way Home."

Synopsis:

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.
