Description Ghettoside de Jill Leovy:

"NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER A masterly work of literary journalism about a senseless murder, a relentless detective, and the great plague of homicide in America On a warm spring evening in South Los Angeles, a young man is shot and killed on a sidewalk minutes away from his home, one of the thousands of black Americans murdered that year. His assailant runs down the street, jumps into an SUV, and vanishes, hoping to join the scores of killers in American cities who are never arrested for their crimes. But as soon as the case is assigned to Detective John Skaggs, the odds shift. Here is the kaleidoscopic story of the quintessential, but mostly ignored, American murder a ghettoside killing, one young black man slaying another and a brilliant and driven cadre of detectives whose creed is to pursue justice for forgotten victims at all costs. "Ghettoside "is a fast-paced narrative of a devastating crime, an intimate portrait of detectives and a community bonded in tragedy, and a surprising new lens into the great subject of why murder happens in our cities and how the epidemic of killings might yet be stopped.

"The Boston Globe""" Gritty, heart-wrenching . . . Everyone needs to read this book. Michael Connelly "Ghettoside" is remarkable: a deep anatomy of lawlessness. Atul Gawande, author of "Being Mortal" [Leovy writes] with grace and artistry, and controlled but bone-deep outrage in her new book. . . .

This timely book could not be more important. Associated Press Told with the chilling detail and gripping pace of a prime-time drama. " The Economist" Leovy s relentless reporting has produced a book packed with valuable, hard-won insights and it serves as a crucial, 366-page reminder that black lives matter.
