After gaining unparalleled access to the homicide unit in Prince George's County, which borders the nation's capital, Del Quentin Wilber begins shadowing the talented, often quirky detectives who get the call when a body falls.
After a quiet couple of months, all hell breaks loose: suddenly every detective in the squad is scrambling to solve one shooting and stabbing after another.
Meanwhile, the entire unit is obsessed with a stone cold "red ball," a high- profile case involving a seventeen year old honour student attacked by a gunman who kicked down the door to her house and shot her in her bed.
Murder is the police investigator's ultimate crucible: to solve a killing, a detective must speak for the dead.
More than any recent book, A Good Month for Murder shows what it takes to succeed when the stakes couldn't possibly be higher.
