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
