9781782116301: Homicide : A Year on the Killing Streets

"A masterpiece." (Martin Amis). "The best book about homicide detectives by an American writer." (Norman mailer). Based on a year on the killing streets of Baltimore, David Simon's true crime masterpiece reveals a city few will ever experience. Day in day out citizens are shot, stabbed, or bludgeoned to death. At the centre of this hurricane of crime is the city's homicide unit, a small brotherhood of men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world.

Revue de presse :

"A masterpiece . . . Simon has exceptional literary gifts of eye and ear. Few novelists have written so well about the corrosiveness of the modern American city" (MARTIN AMIS)

"David Simon has single-handedly raised the bar for writing about crime, crime-fighting and the messy and imprecise business of justice to new and nearly unreachable levels . . . a work of tremendous ambition which made everything in the genre to follow irrelevant" (ANTHONY BOURDAIN)

"True genius" ( Sunday Times)

"A hard-nosed classic" ( GQ)

"An extraordinary book" ( Guardian)

"Brilliant . . . desolate, sharp, poetic and passionate" ( Financial Times)

"The best book about homicide detectives by an American writer" (NORMAN MAILER)

"A staggering work that is almost impossible to put down . . . a gripping depiction of America's culture of violence . . . Simon conjures up his subjects' individual personalities in three-dimensional detail. The detectives leap off these pages . . . A raw, revelatory and utterly real account of life and death in Baltimore" ( Metro)

"The real delight is the discovery of Simon's perfect ear for dialogue; his masterful construction and pacing; and his empathy for his occasionally brutal but nevertheless inspirational subjects" ( Observer)

"Simon does an extraordinary job of getting under the skin and into the minds of the police officers" ( New York Times Book Review)

"A remarkable psychological and personal picture of 18 men labouring under immense pressure in traumatic circumstances . . . it is not just a majestic piece of reporting, it demonstrates Simon's instinctive ability to identify how the political and psychological interact . . . It reads like a thriller as he takes you through the desperate world of inner city West and East Baltimore, slaying by slaying" ( Daily Telegraph)

"A reporter who keeps his wits about him . . . A very good book" ( The New Yorker)

" Homicide is as intense a work of observation as you're likely ever to find, studded with Simon's caustic, wry and suspicious personality, as well as the ability to portray people as they truly are, usually a complicated shade of grey" ( Herald)

"Simon has captured the poetry of the meanest streets" ( Los Angeles Times)

" Homicide is a beautifully-written, almost poetic observation of a desperately harrowing subject and Simon deserves the highest praise for going to the darkest places of the underbelly of the American dream and coming out with a gripping account of what it is like to live and work there" ( Tribune)

"Brushes away the accretions of myth to reveal the banality of crime . . . it's a sober, unsurprised account of the desperately sad lives of people who commit most crimes and a quiet testimonial to the people who clear up the mess" ( Word Magazine)

"Remarkable . . . A True Crime Classic . . . a journalistic masterpiece of a brutal, bloody, bewildering year in the Baltimore Police Department's homicide unit" ( Associated Press)

"Certainly one of the most engrossing police procedural mystery books ever written, not only because the crimes and plots and personalities are real, but because Simon is a terrific writer who has mastered the necessities and nuances of his material" ( Newsday)

"The world of urban violence has never been so well portrayed, nor has the day-to-day craft of the detective" --Martin Amis
