Just finished this. Really good. It's a work of journalism rather than fiction, David Simon of the Wire followed a Homicide department for a year cataloguing what went on. Just re-released in Wire cover styled paperback to cache in on The Wire success. It's really good. Also really nice to see some of the scenes from The Wire in there.

No sign of Omar though, maybe he'll appear in The Corner which is out in paperback later in the year.
