Editorial Reviews

"Triumphant . . . An outstanding accomplishment."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A huge, ambitious novel about cops, kids, and cocaine . . . Price pressure-cooks the city down to its dense, searing essentials."--The Village Voice

"Page after page explodes with a prose as vivid as kinetic art."--Chicago Tribune

"Price displays a near-perfect ear for street language. . . . He gets so deep under the skin of both the cops and the clockers that it''s hard to believe he himself has never been either."--People

"A classic . . . A powerful book."--Newsweek
