Effin' sueet. David Simon, a reporter for the Baltimore Sun, spends one year in with the Baltimore Homicide Unit, and this 640 page opus is his account of the day to day operations of a big city police department and the unique fraternity of homicide detectives. Fans of the brilliant 1990s TV series Homicide: Life on the Street will recognize some of the characters, but this book is so much more than that series ever was. Written in huge, 70 page plus chapters, Simon manages to write with a narrative passion and flow that is stunning. In reading the book you feel like you're in the middle of a 24 hour shift, with all the chaos that comes along with it. Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets is way more than just a standard story of crime in the inner city, it's a stirring, often moving story of the effects of race, class, and information in late 20th century America.
