[An] engaging study of New York City detectives… Well-told tales of true crime, buttressed by clearly wrought descriptions of life on the street, turn it into something rarer: a fascinating peek into a world most of us would not want to inhabit—but can’t resist wanting to hear about.—Mark Kamine, The Times Literary Supplement

There is much to commend Street Stories. It is an engaging and enthralling read.—Martin Innes, Theoretical Criminology
