As the advertising director of Nutty Nathan's, Nick Stefanos knows all the tricks of the electronics business. Blow-out sales and shady deals were his life. When one of the stockboys disappears, it's not news: just another metalhead who went off chasing some dream of big money and easy living. But the kid reminded Nick of himself twelve years ago: an angry punk hooked on speed metal and the fast life. So when the boy's grandfather begs Nick to find the kid, Nick says he'll try. A Firing Offense, Nick Stefanos' debut, shows why, as Barry Gifford puts it, "To miss out on Pelecanos would be criminal."

I can't wait to read more!
In this - and other iBooks - Apple acts like a sleaze bag marketer. Tap on the book and the informational page pops up and the buyer is told the publishing date is 2011. Shell out $9.99, however, and the buyer will see a copyright date of 1992.
Same thing the booksellers do when they slap a fresh cover on a 20 year old book and stick it in the New Arrivals section. Sleaze bag marketing. At best, this story belongs in the books for $3.99 section.
I have read read most of Pelecanos' writings. This is just mediocre. Set in late '80s DC, there isn't much to it until the end. Save your money.......
