Clockers, Paperback


Rocco Klein, veteran homicide detective, has had enough of life on the edge.

When a warm summer night brings yet another drug-related murder, he has no sense that the case is anything special.

A young black man steps forward to confess but a little digging reveals that he's never been in any kind of trouble, whereas his half-brother, Strike, runs a crew of street-corner coke dealers 'clockers' in a nearby housing project.

Soon Rocco is sure that Strike is the real killer and suddenly Rocco's appetite for the job is back.

With a vengeance.
