 About the Book 

In a wounded city like Baltimore, the job of a homicide detective like Kelvin Sewell is to try to stop the bleeding. So raw and random is the violence that it’s an impossible job, but the way he writes about it is both more chilling and compellingMoreIn a wounded city like Baltimore, the job of a homicide detective like Kelvin Sewell is to try to stop the bleeding.  So raw and random is the violence that it’s an impossible job, but the way he writes about it is both more chilling and compelling than even the most realistic cop drama on TV.The murders he uncovers aren’t the cleverly plotted fictions of CSI, but the more frightening ones that blossom in poverty and neglect, when teens murder each other for a mobile phone or blindly follow a gang leader’s order and burn a man alive. In these and other cases, Sewell’s street wisdom, ear for absurdity and uncommon humanity, blow them wide open.Sewell’s  gritty memoir of a life on America’s toughest streets is essential reading for anyone remotely interested in how to make our cities safer.David Robinson – Book Editor – The Scotsman Newspaper
