Derek Strange and Terry Quinn, the team of investigators who made their bestselling debut in Right As Rain, are hired to find a fourteen-year-old girl who's run away from her home in the suburbs. It's easy for Strange and Quinn to learn that the girl is now working as a prostitute in one of D.C.'s most brutal neighborhoods. Getting her to leave is harder. The two ex-cops think they know this world—but nothing in their experience has prepared them for the vengeance of Worldwide Wilson, the ruthless operator whose territory they are intruding upon.

Their mission is fractured by a violent criminal act against a young player from the neighborhood football team that Strange coaches. Tracking down the perpetrators becomes a point of honor for Strange and Quinn, and their investigation leads them deep inside the city's labyrinth of crime—and back, again, to the lethal Worldwide Wilson.

I’ve mixed feelings about this one. I don’t know what I thought. Maybe I should, in some way, have predicted this was going to happen.
What I am trying to say is that what Pelecanos showed me with “Right as Rain” is just the preamble of what “Hell to Pay” is. I am a big crime fiction fan, but also, a big mystery fan.
Pelecanos is so raw in his writing and manage to handle the whole black vs. white problem in America in a magnificent way as well as others crime-issues that you’ve to be made of steel if you don’t get touched by it. But this book doesn’t have that turn-the-page effect mystery-suspense novels have.

That is something I miss in this book!
