The scene is Baltimore. Twice every three days another citizen is shot, stabbed or bludgeoned to death. At the centre of this hurricane of crime is the city’s homicide unit, a small brotherhood of hard men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world. David Simon was the first reporter ever to gain unlimited access to a homicide unit, and his remarkable book is both a compelling account of casework and an investigation into out culture of violence.

Clockers – das sind schwarze Dealer, die weiße Klientel 24 Stunden am Tag, 7 Tage die Woche beliefern. Hier im Slum, wo die Welt rau ist, steht die Polizei aggressiv daneben, die Stadt resigniert. Bis sich die Spannung wieder in einer Explosion entlädt. Richard Price hat dieses Szenarium in seinem grandiosen Meisterwerk »Clockers« umgesetzt. Es entstand ein handlungsgetriebener und vor Spannung berstender Großstadtroman, den Spike Lee mit Harvey Keitel verfilmt hat und der den Grundriss für die gefeierte Fernsehserie »The Wire« schuf.

Intelligent writing, intense characters, a dark sense of humor, innovative editing, and complex plots--Homicide: Life on the Street has raised the caliber of television police drama Homicide: Life on the Street is addictive television. Each week we watch to see who Detective Pembleton will spar with in "the Box," or what conspiracy theories Detective Munch will be espousing as the truth, but more than anything we tune in to see the gritty reality that makes this show the best police drama to ever grace the small screen. There aren't any car chases, rarely any shootouts, and sometimes the cases don't get solved. Instead, these detectives keep their clothes on, have a relentlessly morbid sense of humor, and catch the criminals because they have brains, not necessarily brawn. In other words, they're real. Homicide: Life on the Street, The Unofficial Companion by David P. Kalat--the first and only full-length guide to this Emmy Award-winning and three-time Peabody Award-winning television series--brilliantly captures the essence of this groundbreaking show. You'll Learn About: famed filmmaker Barry Levinson's decision to bring Homicide to television instead of making a film of David Simon's novel Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets the behind-the-scenes anecdotes about cast regulars, including the onscreen clutches that led to offscreen romances the producers' many battles with the network suits over poor placement in the schedule, and the series' repeated trips to the land known as hiatus cast casualties--why they left or were let go the esteemed cast--including Andre Braugher, Ned Beatty, Daniel Baldwin, and Yaphet Kotto, among others--the characters they've created, and their beyond-Homicide careers season-by-season critiques of each episode Revealing, resourceful, and thoughtful, Homicide: Life on the Street, the Unofficial 0Companion is a must-have for any fan!

Das neue, große Kriminal-Epos des amerikanischen Bestseller-Autors Don Winslow. In den Straßenschluchten von New York lässt der internationale Star-Autor Don Winslow ein alptraumhaft realistisches Szenario von Drogen, Menschenhandel, Mord entstehen. Er zeichnet die todbringende Allianz von staatlichen Stellen und organisiertem Verbrechen: Sie sehen sich als Elitetruppe der Polizei, eine verschworene Einheit, ausgestattet mit weitreichenden technischen und rechtlichen Möglichkeiten. Gemeinsam sollen sie für Ruhe und Ordnung in ihrem Revier sorgen, dem nördlichen Manhattan. Und genau das tun sie. Hier gelten ihre Spielregeln, hier geschieht nichts ohne ihr Wissen. Doch die Truppe ist extremem Stress ebenso ausgesetzt wie extremen Risiken ... und extremen Verlockungen ... Don Winslows neues Meisterwerk – erschütternd, brutal und unnachgiebig. "Don Winslows "Corruption" ist faszinierend, eine echter Wurf. Stellen Sie sich "Der Pate" vor, aber mit Cops. So gut ist es." – Stephen King "Mit eindringlicher Menschlichkeit in den tragischen Details und mit einer epischen Monumentalität, die geradezu an Shakespeare erinnert – vermutlich der beste Cop-Roman aller Zeiten." – Lee Child "In diesem epischen Roman voll niederschmetternder moralischer Komplexität blickt Don Winslow durch die Augen eines höchst erfahrenen und korrupten Polizisten tief in die Seele des modernen Amerika. Leser von modernen Meistern wie Don DeLillo, Richard Price und Geroge Pelecanons werden reichlich belohnt werden." – Publishers Weekly "Don Winslow hat das kreiert, was wahrscheinlich zum Inbegriff des Polizei-Romans werden wird." – Booklist

The crime-infested intersection of West Fayette and Monroe Streets is well-known--and cautiously avoided--by most of Baltimore. But this notorious corner's 24-hour open-air drug market provides the economic fuel for a dying neighborhood. David Simon, an award-winning author and crime reporter, and Edward Burns, a 20-year veteran of the urban drug war, tell the chilling story of this desolate crossroad. Through the eyes of one broken family--two drug-addicted adults and their smart, vulnerable 15-year-old son, DeAndre McCollough, Simon and Burns examine the sinister realities of inner cities across the country and unflinchingly assess why law enforcement policies, moral crusades, and the welfare system have accomplished so little. This extraordinary book is a crucial look at the price of the drug culture and the poignant scenes of hope, caring, and love that astonishingly rise in the midst of a place America has abandoned.
