A New York Times Notable Book

On Devils Night, the night before Halloween, some citizens of Detroit try to burn down their neighborhoods for an international audience of fire buffs. This gripping and often heartbreaking tour of the Murder Capital of America often seems lit by those same fires. But as a native Detroiter, Zeev Chafets also shows us the city beneath the crime statisticsits ecstatic storefront churches; its fearful and embittered white suburbs; its cops and criminals; and the new breed of black officials who are determined to keep Detroit running in the midst of appalling dangers and indifference.
