My 10 Favorite Audiobooks of 2009: #9

The Way Home
by George Pelecanos
Narrated by Dion Graham
Produced by Hachette Audio

In The Way Home, George Pelecanos, known for his Derek Strange novels and his work on the TV show “The Wire” steps away from the straight up crime fiction novels and tells a more intimate tale about the relationships between fathers and sons. While his signature crooks and criminals still litter the scenes and his dialogue still sings like urban poetry, Pelecanos steps out of his comfort zone with a novel that is both troubling and full of redemption. “The Wire” actor Dion Graham again handles the narration for Pelecanos’ novel, and brings the characters to life without being overbearing.
