Cops and dealers (and The Wire)

Dolan Cummings of Culture Wars has written the best review of my book. I don't mean the most positive review (though I'm very glad he liked my book); I mean the best written review. They sure writes good with that there English language in England.

Along with being the first to juxtapose me, Venkatesh, Homicide, and The Wire (which is a natural but he's the first), I actually found myself learning more about my own book through this review. It's outstanding writing (and it's very rare to see a good use of "yadda yadda").

Read the whole review here. It's a bit lengthy, and worth it.
