is this a good book if I like crime and mystery

Josh Although it is non-fiction, Simon manages to pace a lot of the cases like a mystery novel, only with less dialogue and more detail on the way the department works. However, if you are looking for method over madness, I would highly recommend this one as you get a lot of insight into how the detectives solve the crimes by using the system and the clues to their advantage. It is not an action-oriented book, as detectives are always supposed to arrive after the crime has been committed. But the book read like a chronicle detective story featuring many cases than a murder mystery with one big crime.
Matt Jivin This is non-fiction so it's not going to be your typical murder-mystery police procedural. If you're a fan of The Wire you'll love this.
