Edgar and Anthony Award Winner

Selected by the Literary Guild

"Remarkable...A true crime classic."

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Enter the workday of real policemen. Follow fifteen detectives, three sergeants, and a lieutenant, whose job it is to investigate Baltimore's 234 murders. You will get a cop's-eye-view of the bureaucracy, the highs of success, the moments of despair, and the non-stop rush of pursuits, anger, banter, and violence that make up a cop's life. Now an acclaimed television series, this extraordinary book is the insider's look at what you have always wondered about.

This is interior reporting at its finest".--"Associated Press". An Edgar Award winner and the basis for the popular television series of the same title.
