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.

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:

A phenomenally gripping account of a homicide investigation explodes the myths around policing and race.
