Laura Lippman recruits David Simon, Tim Cockey, Dan Fesperman and others to craft a lurid and riveting portrait of the real city of Baltimore, behind the screen of TV shows like Homicide The Wire. |To live in Baltimore - Bulletmore, Murderland, according to one famous piece of graffiti - is to be aware of killing; we have not enjoyed the sharp declines in homicide rates achieved by cities such as Boston and New York. We remain steadfastly in the top five, per capita, year in and year out.| From the introduction by Laura Lippman
