Teaser Tuesday: The Night Gardener

He used her credit card to buy gas for the hack and also for cash advances to buy more rock.  He stayed high and without a plan, except to wait for the police, who he knew would eventually come.
-- The Night Gardener by George Pelecanos.

I'm having a hard time getting absorbed by this book. It is hard for me to go from the fluid elegance of Iris Murdoch's The Sea, the Sea , to hard boiled crime and Pelecanos's lickity split cadence.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
