Review:

"Riveting ... extraordinary ... For long passages, it enveloped and transported me more completely than any other work of nonfiction I have ever read" -- Ed Caesar * Sunday Times * "Lucid, revelatory, superbly written, incredibly timely. I was astonished by Jill Leovy's Ghettoside in which police and race in America are examined with forensic skill and furious, exceptional prose. Unmissable." -- Chris Cleave "Exceptional. This book will take an honoured place on the shelf that includes David Simon's classic Homicide" -- Martin Amis "Fantastic. Not just a gritty, heart-wrenching, and telling book, but an important one. Everyone needs to read this book" -- Michael Connelly "The best crime journalism since Serial" * Esquire *

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. THE MULTI-AWARD WINNING INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - AS READ ON BBC RADIO 4 Why would you kill your neighbour? Based on the best part of a decade embedded with the homicide units of the LAPD, this groundbreaking work of reportage takes us onto the streets, inside the homes and into the lives of a community wracked by a homicide epidemic. Through the gripping story of one particular murder - of an eighteen-year-old boy named Bryant Tennelle, gunned down one evening in spring for no apparent reason - and of its investigation by a brilliant, ferociously driven detective - a blond, surfer-turned-cop named John Skaggs - it reveals the true origins of such violence, explodes the myths surrounding policing and race and shows that the only way to reverse the cycle of violence is with justice.
