"Simon does an extraordinary job of getting under the skin and into the minds of the police officers." --The New York Times Book Review
"We seem to have an insatiable appetite for police stories . . . David Simon's entry is far and away the best, the most readable, reliable and relentless of them all." --The Washington Post Book World
