Summary
Based on the best part of a decade embedded with the homicide units of the LAPD, this immersive work of reportage takes the reader onto the streets, inside the homes and into the lives of a community wracked by a homicide epidemic. It tells the story of an 18-year-old black man named Bryant Tennelle, gunned down one evening in spring for no apparent reason, and of the brilliant, ferociously driven detective - a blonde, surfer-turned-cop named John Skaggs - on a mission not just to solve his murder but to end the epidemic for good
