Adds depth to the TV series,
By A Customer
This review is from: Homicide: a Year on the Killing Streets (Mass Market Paperback)
A very good read for someone who likes the series. Also adds important lingo for those (like me) who are interested in criminal investigations and the development of forensic evidence. Gives insight as to the motivations of homicide detectives (there's money in murder) and how the prosecutor is so dependent on a good detective for a strong legal case. Shows how criminals and suspects are treated in the system, and the way that a suspect's rights are protected (or not) in this system. Very enlightening! Only reservation is that the book is verbose and meandering at times.
