Seconds later a gun goes off, perfectly timed to coincide with the movie's noisy climax. When the boy struts coolly out, blood sprayed on the front of his cheap print shirt, Cooper knows he's found his partner. King Suckerman weaves the blaxploitation films, the drug deals, the soul music and the racial tensions that defined the '70's into a story of natural-born killers and two men who risk everything to bring them down. This is the second novel in the "DC Quartet", the most explosive contribution to crime fiction since Ellroy's "LA Quartet".Hide synopsis

August 1997. hardcover. Jacket by Michael Ian Kaye/Kristian Russell. KING SUCKERMAN kicks off my favorite trilogy of George Pelecanos novels. It also reintroduces Dimitri Karras, who we met as a child in The Big Blowdown. 0316695904. keywords: Mystery America Washington DC. inventory # 24659. FROM THE PUBLISHER-KING SUCKERMAN is a thriller that weaves the blaxploitation films, the drug deals, the soul music, and the racial tensions that defined the seventies into a story of natural-born killers and two men who risk everything to bring them down. Dimitri Karras and Marcus Clay are old friends whose affection transcends the barriers of race. Clay is a Vietnam vet trying to make a go of his own small business, while Karras is drifting, playing pickup basketball and supporting himself with small-time drug dealing. When Karras takes Clay with him to make a buy from a new supplier, they cross paths with Wilton Cooper-and enter a world where merciless, unpredictable violence is the only certainty. Cooper cuts a swath of bloody mayhem that leads straight to Karras's door, and Karras has the battle of a lifetime to keep his walk on the wild side from destroying his entire world.
