Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets

A true-crime classic, Homicide was first published in 1991, and a new Canongate edition is now available in Australia and New Zealand. A few local reviewers have enjoyed it this summer. Here’s what they said:

‘Awe-inspiring…As a crime reporter I found it somewhat depressing to finish this book and realise that one of the things you could hope to do in your line of work has already been done to near-perfection. The set of circumstances provided by such an inhumane society, Simon’s devotion to the task and his gifts of storytelling are unmatchable. Cross that one of the list.’
Ian Steward, Weekend Press [NZ], 3 Jan

‘He is an excellent writer—muscular, humorous, morally alert, but not for the most part moralistic, and over 650 pages his depth of vision has a truthfulness and emotional presence…’
Owen Richardson, Age, 2 Jan
