Why would you kill your neighbour? Based on the best part of a decade embedded with the homicide units of the LAPD, this groundbreaking work of reportage takes us onto the streets, inside the homes, and into the lives of a community wracked by a homicide epidemic. Through the gripping story of one particular murder of an 18-year-old boy named Bryant Tennelle, gunned down one evening in spring for no apparent reason, and of its investigation by a brilliant, ferociously driven detective.
A somewhat interesting story

This is a compelling, real-life account of an actual murder investigation in the tough areas of Los Angeles, USA. It has fly-on-the-wall recounts and is intelligently written.
I enjoyed it visceral nature and its historical references which put into context the nature of the activity.
I liked the voice of the narrator.
Highly recommended for those who enjoy criminal narratives.
