The Book - Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets by David Simon

The Bible for fans of the show. As a result of what must have been very extensive negotiations with BCPD officials, Mr Simon was allowed to follow Lt. Gary D'Addario's shift detectives for a full year. He was allowed unprecedented access to interrogations, autopsies, crime scenes, and the detectives' lives. He's now a staff writer on H:LotS & has written at least 1 episode of NYPD Blue. (We'll forgive him since it was a good one.) This book's well worth the read for any fan of the show or of true crime. Many of the real cases were turned into stories for the show. Coming soon - Cases from the book that have been used on the show!
