In Ghettoside by Jill Leovy a high-stakes murder investigation uncovers the roots of a homicide epidemic. Based on the best part of a decade embedded with the homicide units of the LAPD, this gripping, immersive work of reportage takes the reader onto the streets, inside the homes and into the lives of a community wracked by a homicide epidemic. It tells the story of an eighteen-year-old black man named Bryant Tennelle, gunned down one evening in spring for no apparent reason, and of the brilliant, ferociously driven detective - a blonde, surfer-turned-cop named John Skaggs - on a mission not just to solve his murder but to end the epidemic for good. Through his gripping investigation, Ghettoside provides urgent insights into the origins of such violence, explodes the myths surrounding policing and race, and shows that the only way to fight the epidemic successfully is with justice.
