By Bill James. The father of sabremetrics brings his unique brand of analysis to major-case crime in America. I've read the book a dozen times, and some of it doesn't work, but a lot of it does, and it recommends a ton of other reading as well.
This hardcover is foxy, but...not in the good way -- cornerwear to the jacket, and lots of foxing/staining to page edges and flyleaves. That said, the page faces are fine and the book sits nice and straight. Will get the job done if you can live with a little mung.
