The Killing Season : A Summer in South-Central with LAPD Homicide Paperback
by Miles Corwin
Meet Pete Razanskas, 22-year veteran homicide cop and Marcella Winn, a rookie detective who grew up in the 'hood.
They're an unlikely partnership whose job it is to attempt to close some of the hundreds of murder cases that happen every year in the gang-infested streets of South-Central LA.
Crime reporter Miles Corwin gained unprecedented access to shadow them for the usual hot summer of endless homicide.
We meet the cops, the victims and the murders (Crips and Bloods, drug dealers, psychopaths and even killer kids), witness their incredible daily lives and hear their stories in intimate detail. "The Killing Season" is a raw, shocking and riveting story of an extreme place not far from the ordinary world where war rages on the streets and life has little value.
