Homicide : A Year on the Killing Streets (4 Cassettes)by David Simon, Reed Edward Diamond, Reed Diamond
Through wonderfully descriptive writing, Simon details the work of fifteen detectives, three sergeants and a lieutenant charged with investigating dozens of Baltimore's 234 murders that year. Simon takes listeners inside the detectives' lives, describing the frustration of departmental red tape and politics, the bursts of energy and moments of despair.
With an eye for the scenes of slaughter and pursuit and an ear for the cadences of cop talk, both business and banter, Simon gives this brilliant, harrowing account its authenticity and fascinating edge.
Simon plants us so close to these detectives that we see everythingthe Police Department, the prosecutors, the courts, the city of Baltimore itselffrom their angle. This is a never-before-seen look at what it's really like to investigate murders for a living.
