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.

some one else might enjoy this book. the book was a bit too much dialogue and not enough realistic grit and not enough violence that is part of the cocaine trade . m aybe the book might have been better in 1992, when it was written.

The basis of so much 'urban' literature. A great study of two men, though it has flaws (characters that just drop out and never return). I wanted to keep reading about these people's lives long after the book finished.
