Description
On a hot summer afternoon in 1972, three teenagers drive into an unfamiliar neighborhood and six lives are altered forever. Thirty-five years later, one survivor of that day reaches out to another, opening a door that could lead to salvation. But another survivor is now out of prison looking for reparation in any form he can find it. The Turnaround takes us on a journey from the rock-and-roll streets of the 1970s to the changing neighborhoods of DC today, from the diners and auto garages of the city to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where wounded men and women have returned to the world in a time of war.

THE TURNAROUND takes us on a journey from the rock-and-soul streets of the '70s to the changing neighborhoods of D.C. today, from the diners and auto garages of the city to the inside of Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, where wounded men and women have returned to the world in a time of war. A novel of fathers and sons, wives and husbands, loss, victory and violent redemption, THE TURNAROUND is another compelling, highly charged novel from George Pelecanos, "the best crime novelist in America." -Oregonian
