That's what Rocco Klein wants to find out But can he get the suspect's brother a crack dealer named Strike to cooperate?This is the fourteenth book in my Kindle Unlimited Experiment For the 30 day trial I'm only reading books that are part of the program and keeping track what the total cost of the books would have beenLike most people who have read this in recent years I loved HBO's The Wire and Price was one of the writers This feels like the novelization of four Wire episodes in the best way possibleClockers is a crime book but it's also a window into the lives of cops and the crack dealers they're trying to catch Much like The Wire Clockers shows that both sides of the conflict are fairly ordinary human beings not knights in shining armor or scene chewing villainsStrike and Rocco the two leads are both well drawn conflicted characters Neither is particularly happy with

    PDF/EPUB camberleyhotel.co.uk î Clockers PDF/EPUB ☆ clockers epub, Clockers KindleAwesome Price has got the inner city down This novel which switches back and forth between two points of view Strike is an inner city 🌃 drug dealer who lives in the projects and sits at the benches slinging “bottles” crack vials hiding his cash in safe houses and thinking someday he’ll have the balls to walk out of the life still breathing His mother told him never to come back and his brother Victor works the straight life with two jobs and a dream of getting out of the projects and a wife and two kids The other point of view is homicide detective Rocco who is not completely jaded even after working these mean streets There’s an unsolved homicide tying these two characters together What makes this 610 page behemoth sing is how well Price captures the language and the rhythm and the attitude of the two worlds that Strike and Rocco inhabit The dialogue and the narrative is real It’s genuine
