ClockersBook - 2001 | 1st Perennial ed.
In the dark depths of a New Jersey city, a burnt-out homicide detective obsessed with justice chases a street-smart teenaged "clocker"--a neighborhood crack dealer--through the streets of hell. By the author of The Wanderers. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Award-winning author Richard Price offers a viscerally affecting and accomplished portrait of inner-city America.
Veteran homicide detective Rocco Klein's passion for the job gave way long ago. His beat is a rough New Jersey neighborhood where the drug murders blur together ... until the day Victor Dunham -- a twenty-year-old with a steady job and a clean record -- confesses to a shooting outside a fast-food joint. It doesn't take long for Rocco's attention to turn to Victor's brother, a street-corner crack dealer named Strike who seems a more likely suspect for the crime. At once an intense mystery, and a revealing study of two men on opposite sides of an unwinnable war, Clockers is a stunningly well-rendered chronicle of modern life on the streets.
