The Cut

Judging from the response to an earlier blog post recommending a Jack Reacher read-alike, library patrons really didn't like the idea of Tom Cruise as the star of the new movie. Never fear! Lee Child fans can take heart that there are more cool heroes out there, just waiting to be discovered. George Pelecanos, novelist and writer/producer of the hit HBO show The Wire, has recently started a series starring returned Iraq War veteran, Spero Lucas. The Cut is the first installment.

Lucas returns to Washington D.C. after his years of service and starts work as an investigator for a defense attorney. Lucas finds his niche in his side job as a "finder." He finds stolen property for people, no questions asked, for a 40% fee. As you can imagine, the type of clients who need this service can be a bit sketchy. In fact, in this case, the client is an imprisoned drug dealer looking to recover stolen deliveries of marijuana. Lucas stylishly blazes his way across D.C., making plenty of time to enjoy wine, women and song along the way.

Keep an eye out for The Double, the second book starring Spero Lucas, that is due out this year.
