After gaining unprecedented access inside the LAPD, Miles Corwin hand picked a detective team whom he would be shadowing - day in and day out - throughout the summer. He struck gold with Pete "Raz" Razanskas and Marcella Winn. Larger than life and truly unsung heroes, Raz and Winn are as colorful as any fictional characters. Raz is a crusty veteran of the force and as the "season" begins he is newly paired with the most unlikely partner - Marcella Winn, a street smart young black woman who grew up in the 'hood and doesn't back down from anyone. The Killing Season is shocking, uncensored, and full of real-life drama. Although it reads like a fast-paced novel, this is an important work of nonfiction that offers readers a genuine sense of what life is like for the cops, the killers, the victims, and their families.
