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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 * *
This comprehensive and inspired series guide is a revelatory insight into the courage, determination and skill that went into making the series. With contributions from the authors and screenwriters, it's a fascinating look at both the fractured nature of modern society and how you go about depicting that on screen. * * Big Issue * *
Not the usual coffee-table photo book, but something substantial, complex, honest, challenging, revealing, funny and also unprecedented, unique - a book, in other words, worthy of THE WIRE. -- Tony Kushner
Rafael, writer on all five series, has produced a companion work that does justice to the original and reveals the depth of its authenticity. * * Waterstones Books Quarterly * *
One of the greatest works of television of all time. * * Independent * *
You either love THE WIRE, or haven't seen it. * * Guardian * *
A vital part of the television landscape. * * New York Times * *
THE WIRE, like its underfunded, workaday cops, just plugged away until it outshone everything else on TV. * * Time * *
