Hundreds of homicide cases in any given year can shake even the staunchest cities and police departments to the core. The statistics, however, don't paint the real stories and the effect that lingers -- through the pain endured by victims' loved ones, the community impact, and the memories that detectives will never forget. "Homicide City" explores unforgettable murder cases from major American cities, investigations that had law enforcement banding together across metropolitan landscapes in a sequence of manhunts. Each story is told by veteran homicide detectives, local reporters, and the victims' families.
