Book cover of A Good Month for Murder: The Inside Story of a Homicide Squad  by Del Quentin Wilberby Del Quentin Wilber

Bestselling author Del Quentin Wilber tells the inside story of how a homicide squad—a dedicated, colorful team of detectives—does its almost impossible job

Twelve homicides, three police-involved shootings and the furious hunt for an especially brutal killer–February 2013 was a good month for murder in suburban Washington, D.C.

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 honor student attacked by a gunman who kicked down the door to her house and shot her in her bed.
