Two brothers grow up together in the same Brooklyn housing projects, but they are as opposite as good and evil. Victor Dunham has a family, works two jobs and leads a respectable life. His 19-year-old brother, Strike, hangs out with his friends on a bench and sells crack cocaine. Strike agrees to kill a rival dealer as a favor to Rodney, the neighborhood drug kingpin, but when the man is murdered, it is Victor who confesses. Detective Rocco Kleine won"t buy Victor"s confession, and begins to attempt to break down the stories of both brothers in order to save Victor.

"Clockers," however, was without a doubt an exception to that rule. The book was apparently the inspiration for HBO's hit series, The Wire. If you enjoyed that show, you will unquestionably love this book (and if you love the book, Clockers book need to check out the show).
The realism depicted on the pages also cannot go without mentioning first.4/4(). "The Wire - in convenient book form" has been my pithy description of Clockers. To expand upon that, it's a character study that does nothing to dispel the popular image of the homicide detective (a world-weary skeptic, partly corrupt, slightly alcoholic, alternately caring too much and too little), but does much to explain how he got that way/5.
Hung loosely onto a mystery plot, Clockers immerses the reader in the drug culture of inner-city housing projects, where wealth and death are equally certain and swift. In the low-income housing. Richard Price is the author of seven novels, including Lush Life, Clockers, Freedomland, and wrote the screenplays for the films Sea of Love, Ransom, and The Color of Money, for which he received an Academy Award won the Edgar Award for Best TV writing as a co-writer for the HBO series The was also awarded a Literature Award from The American /5(19).
