Noir, Akashic had the good sense to turn to Pelecanos (Drama City, 2005), who delivers a wholly satisfying volume. From his own "Confidential Informant," to James Grady's "Bottom Line," Pelecanos shows us how both trash-strewn alleys and oak-paneled offices can trap their occupants with dreams, compromise, and heartbreak. Published on January 14, 2007.

This is not an anthology of ill-conceived and inauthentic political thrillers. Instead, in D.C. Noir, pimps, whores, gangsters, and con-men run rampant in zones of this city that most never hear about."From the Chevy Chase housewife who commits a shocking act to the watchful bum protecting Georgetown street vendors, the tome offers a startling glimpse into the cityscape's darkest corners...Fans of the [noir] genre will find solid writing, palpable tension and surprise endings."—Washington Post"Every story in this all-original noir anthology set in the nation's capital is well-written."—Publishers Weekly"Imbued with countless collective years of local experience."—Washington City Paper"[Pelecanos] has assembled a compelling mix of ex-convicts, retired police officers, former crime beat reporters and a few writing pros willing to turn their storytelling eye, whether jaundiced or tender, inward toward the neighborhood...Local haunts and hangouts are lovingly drawn."—Washington Times"Pick up a copy of the book D.C. Noir...and prepare to be transported to a different D.C. that the tourists see...Pure Washingtonian."—Washingtonian"Those looking for redemption in humanity would do well to look elsewhere, but this set of gritty urban tales, written with all the requisite touches of shadow and fog of the noir masters, is a rare cut for crime aficionados and should pique the interest of anyone who calls the Dark City home."—Examiner Washington
godlike
Pelecanos can sure pick them!
These are stories by a number of DC writers about DC and therefore vary somewhat in quality.
However, some are real gems and almost all have thought provoking content.
Characters are gritty and compelling in most cases.
The neighborhoods are distinct and recognizable.
As in most Noir, it is easy to see the characters falling into trouble, but many of the stories have a surprising twist at the end.

I bought the book because I worked in DC more than 40 years ago. The book is comprised of stories from locals and others about life and experiences from all four sections of the city. I enjoyed reading each story with the characters and their sections of DC. However, many of the memories in my opinion are enhanced to the point of sounding like fiction. Notwithstanding the above, it is still an interesting book to read.

Good book for anyone that has lived in DC. The landmarks make the book interesting. Many different short stories.
Whiteflame
many good stories
Ganthisc
Great condition, great book

but I found this book fairly ordinary. I liked a few of the stories but most seemed too short and didn't really grab me at all. George Pelecanos wrote the best story by far (not uncommon for him, one of the most talented writers out there).

I am not a fan of short stories to begin with so maybe my preconceived notions of what to expect (disappointment) coloured my viewpoint.

A couple of good stories, a couple of mediocre stories, and the rest are not worth reading. Give this book a Pasadena.
Negative portrayal of African Americans as criminals, drug addicts, and unintelligent.
