A novel by

2005 Barry Award for Best Novel (nominee)

HARD REVOLUTION is a rich, dramatic, totally engrossing story of two brothers--one a rookie police officer, one a recently returned Vietnam veteran--caught up in the chaos that engulfed D.C. in 1968, when riots followed the assassination of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Derek Strange is his family's straight arrow, but his older brother Dennis has always had a harder time. Home from the war and in several varieties of trouble, Dennis is in danger of making one bad decision too many. While Derek tries to be there for Dennis, no amount of brotherly love can save Dennis from Alvin Jones, a local drug dealer who draws him into his web. An apocalyptic gun battle and an impossible decision collide in the electrifying climax of the most powerful book yet from George Pelecanos, a novelist who "writes with intelligence and complexity, as well as with a sober recognition of the evil at large in the world."
