George Pelecanos is my favorite author. All of his books are incredibly fun and are like watching a great movie. Shoedog is not a series novel, so it has a different feel to his Strange, D.C, or Stefanos novels, and Pelecanos wanted to go for that 70's action/hard-boiled novel feel and the reader can easily see that he succeeds. I read this in less than half a day because I couldn't put it down. This was a fun book, as are all of Pelecanos' books are.

the ending was too abrupt. Many characters storlines went nowhere(Weiner for example and Shoedog himself). Also the title was misleading. It wasn't even the lead character.
