At the center of this hurricane of crime is the city’s homicide unit, a small brotherhood of hard men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world. In his first nonfiction book––The Wire (HBO series)––David Simon skillfully weaves together the stories of detectives J.D. “Fig” Newton, Kima Greggs, Jimmy McNulty and Bunk Moreland to create a compelling character study of the people who catch murderers in Baltimore’s most dangerous city streets. In this definitive work, Simon offers an authoritative account of police work and investigates the forces influencing their efforts to solve crimes.

From the creator of HBO’s The Wire, Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets is a gripping inside look at police work in Baltimore. It tells of the infamous murder of three girls; the case that brought body parts to the surface and set deep currents running.

Committed to the belief that a society that can’t tolerate its mistakes is doomed to repeat them, David Simon and Ed Burns have crafted a portrait of criminal law enforcement that is ambitious in its reach as it is engrossing in its detail.
The Homicide Detectives
is a thoroughly absorbing, civilized depiction of life on the front lines of American urban war zones.

David Simon’s “Homicide” is the story of a detective’s hard-won quest for justice in a world gone mad. Simon provides a clear, compelling display of how police detectives work, the plight of the urban poor, and what can be done to help them escape their situation.

About Homicide Book

From the creator of HBO’s The Wire, the classic book about homicide investigation that became the basis for the hit television show

The scene is in Baltimore. Twice every three days, another citizen is shot, stabbed, or bludgeoned to death. At the center of this hurricane of crime is the city’s homicide unit, a small brotherhood of hard men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world.
David Simon was the first reporter ever to gain unlimited access to a homicide unit, and this electrifying book tells the story of a year on the violent streets of an American city. The narrative follows Donald Worden, a veteran investigator; Harry Edgerton, a black detective in a predominantly white unit; and Tom Pellegrini, an earnest rookie who takes on the year’s most challenging case, the brutal rape and murder of an eleven-year-old girl.
Originally published fifteen years ago, Homicide became the basis for the acclaimed television show of the same name. This new edition- which includes a new introduction, an afterword, and photographs- revives this classic, riveting tale about the men working on the American experience’s dark side.

“Remarkable . . . A true crime classic . . . A journalistic masterpiece . . . [A] saga of a brutal, bloody, bewildering year in the Baltimore Police Department’s homicide unit . . . This is internal reporting at its finest.” Associated Press
“We seem to have an insatiable appetite for police stories . . . . David Simon’s entry is far and away the best, the most readable, reliable and relentless of them all . . . . An eye for the scenes of slaughter and pursuit and an ear for the cadences of cop talk, both business and banter, lend Simon’s account . . . the fascination that truth often has . . . . Fueled by coffee, cigarettes, and the drive to ‘put down’ (i.e., close) cases, these heroes keep at it long after ordinary mortals would have lost heart.” The Washington Post

“This may be the best true-crime book, the best-naked look at murder and cops and crime and life on the killing streets of big-city America in the late 20th century . . . . A rich, revealing look at the twisted lives of killers and their victims and at the men who are obsessed with solving the most heinous and baffling murders.” San Diego Union.
