Lush Life by Richard Price

This is the first book I've read by Price. I loved it. I don't know about his other books, but this one was like reading Micheal Connelly and George Pelecanos, braided together. Very street, hear the beat, combined with police procedure. The setting is Manhattan, the crime is homicide. In the story of the aftermath, Price focuses on everything; the perpetrators; the victims and their families; and the cops who doggedly pursue the frailest threads of evidence and possibility. It could be overwhelming, but it's not, it's skillful writing, the best.
