Currently Listening: A Good Month For Murder

A Good Month For Murder-1.inddA Good Month For Murder: The Inside Story of a Homicide Squad
By: Del Quentin Wilber
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.

I am currently listening to this book. As someone who loves documentaries into the real life of emergency personnel, this book is just as a good as watching a documentary on TV. With a full review at a later time, this is how the publisher describes the book:

Twelve homicides, three police-involved shootings and the furious hunt for an especially brutal killer–February 2013 was a good month for murder in suburban Washington, D.C.

After gaining unparalleled access to the homicide unit in Prince George’s County, which borders the nation’s capital, Del Quentin Wilber begins shadowing the talented, often quirky detectives who get the call when a body falls. After a quiet couple of months, all hell breaks loose: suddenly every detective in the squad is scrambling to solve one shooting and stabbing after another. Meanwhile, the entire unit is obsessed with a stone-cold “red ball,” a high-profile case involving a seventeen-year-old honor student attacked by a gunman who kicked down the door to her house and shot her in her bed.

Murder is the police investigator’s ultimate crucible: to solve a killing, a detective must speak for the dead. More than any recent book, A Good Month for Murder shows what it takes to succeed when the stakes couldn’t possibly be higher.

Check back for a book review at a later date!
