THE WIRE is one of the most critically acclaimed drama series in the history of television. Over its five seasons it built up a rich and layered portrait of Baltimore: its hardened police force, its corner boys, its dock workers and its politicians. The Wire: Truth Be Told brings the reader inside this world: packed with photographs and featuring an introduction by David Simon, it covers all five seasons in glorious detail.

Review quote

'Episode guides often let you down by being just that: a book of plot synopses. True to The Wire's unsurpassed quality, this 'episode guide' has the synopses muscling for space with essays from the likes of George Pelecanos and a Nick Hornby interview with creator David Simon. Essential stuff.' Empire
