Loved the series, will now try this book, looks good. Only £9.99 delivered from play.com

THE WIRE has been widely hailed as the greatest television series of all time. It portrays the war of attrition between the city's hardened police force, and its drug dealers, and the blurring of good and evil, justice and injustice, right and wrong. Over its five series it has built up a detailed, rich and layered portrait of Baltimore: from its corner buys touting dope and its dock workers facing extinction, through the strained education system and tainted halls of power, to the crumbling media establishment. Rafael Alvarez - a reporter, essayist and staff writer for the show - brings the reader inside this world, detailing many of the real-life incidents and personalities that have inspired the show's storylines and characters. Packed with photographs and featuring an introduction by series creator and executive producer David Simon, as well as essays by acclaimed authors George Pelecanos, Ed Burns, Richard Price, Laura Lipmann, Denis Lehane, it covers all fives series in glorious detail.

Also £10 at amazon.co.uk and W H Smith i think everyone has lowered the price as is was £14.99 before.

Snoop is actually a Baltimore native, she was born a "crack" baby.
Started dealing on the streets, ended up with a murder charge, got out and managed to get a spot on the show through the character that plays Omar!!

Pretty mad stuff, atlhough yea, she does look like a boy.

did she play a boy or girl on the show then?

She played a girl. Check out ]this Guardian interview with her and the actor who played Omar.

Just came across this... perfect xmas gift for the boyfriend. The series is brilliant (working my way through the boxset right now) and we are both addicted. Snoop is supposed to be a girl in the show, just thick skinned etc to make it through life in the hood.
