"Death" and "Coon" and "Worldwide Wilson" are the street names of bad guys in this mystery thriller set in Washington, D.C.'s, worst neighborhoods. Two private investigators--one white and one black--go deep and try to draw the line between what's evil, and what just happens in the 'hood. Do good men visit whores? Yes. Coach Pee Wee football? Yes. Sell drugs? Maybe. Richard Allen talks the talk splendidly when he's a dude. He can't render children's voices at all, and probably shouldn't have tried, but it doesn't matter terribly. Poverty is a man's game, even if you are a boy. This excellent book is dedicated to Dennis Ashton, Jr., a 7-year-old shot to death by a criminal with a handgun in 1977. B.H.C.
