Giveaway-The Turnaround by George Pelecanos

March 27th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to Valerie at Hachette Book Group for the chance to giveaway 5 copies of this book.

Description: On a hot summer afternoon in 1972, three teenagers drove into an unfamiliar neighborhood and six lives were altered forever.

Thirty five years later, one survivor of that day reaches out to another, opening a door that could lead to salvation. But another survivor is now out of prison, looking for reparation in any form he can find it.

THE TURNAROUND takes us on a journey from the rock-and-soul streets of the ’70s to the changing neighborhoods of D.C. today, from the diners and auto garages of the city to the inside of Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, where wounded men and women have returned to the world in a time of war. A novel of fathers and sons, wives and husbands, loss, victory and violent redemption,

THE TURNAROUND is another compelling, highly charged novel from George Pelecanos, “the best crime novelist in America.” -Oregonian
