Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Blue in Washington Barry Ballow. January 24, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. I'm just getting into Pelicanos and generally like his writing.
I found this early novel to be a bit too dreary and pessimistic to be completely enjoyable. The protagonist, Nick Stefanos, is a something guy on a long downward spiral of dead end jobs, booze and drugs. There's much more to the story as Stefanos finds out as he pursues the woman.
A parallel investigation into the murder of a journalist friend puts Stefanos at further risk.
Much of "Nick's Trip"--and other Pelicanos' books--include numerous and minutely detailed descriptions of Washington DC neighborhoods, streets, places, etc. But, in fact, the laundry list of locations doesn't really evoke much of a feeling for the city. Of course, the place has changed a lot since this novel came out in something a resident of the city is more aware of than most readers of the book.

This was an okay and easy read and has been very well described by earlier reviewers, so I'll just leave it at that. July 15, - Published on Amazon.

Billy says April may have left him for his business associate Joey DiGeordano, a local criminal.
Nick takes the case. While Nick looks into the missing April Goodrich and the murdered William Henry, he is also asked by Jackie to impregnate her so that she and her female lover can have a child together. Nick agrees to do so. Nick and Billy return to Washington, D.
Meanwhile, Goloria and Wallace, two corrupt cops, threaten Nick to stop searching for April. Tommy appears and tries to kill Nick, whose life is saved by a local cop who appears and shoots Tommy to death.
