Descrizione

“[A] dark D.C. tale with . . . an addictive neo-noir sensibility” by the award-winning journalist and New York Times–bestselling author of Tattoos & Tequila (Publishers Weekly).
 
With a pretty wife, a new baby, and a job reporting for the Washington Herald, Jonathan Seede is the picture of urban respectability. But a secret freelance project is drawing him into places most people never dare to go. Just ten blocks from the White House, on the notorious Fourteenth Street strip, a war is raging over drugs, prostitution, and other deviant behaviors—and Seede is on the front lines.
 
When his family abruptly leaves him, Seede embarks on a journey into his own dark urges. Along the way, he encounters pimps and hustlers, an accidental hooker, an honest cop, a storefront prophet who deals marijuana, a beautiful teenage runaway, a crack-addicted music legend, an A-list gay activist, and a diminutive billionaire who is searching for the answers to life’s greatest questions in a crystal skull.
 
“Mike Sager’s keen, journalistic eye and unique voice transfer to fiction with highly entertaining results. Deviant Behavior is a street-level, symphonic portrait of an American city.” —George Pelecanos, author of The Night Gardener
