Journalist Stacy Horn is a contributor to NPR’s All Things Considered program. In her enticing narrative The Restless Sleep, she sheds light on the dark world of the NYPD’s real-life Cold Case Squad—a special command of detectives who take on the homicide cases that remain unsolved after their initial period of investigation. Those who comprise its ranks are often characterized as misfits and lone wolves—but brilliant ones, to be sure. Here, their fascinating and deeply troubling stories of cases closed—and others that remain open—are conveyed in chilling detail. Download and start listening now!

    " Slogging through pages and pages of data and police politics to get to information about the cold cases makes this a tedious read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ginny | 1/8/2014

    " I couldn't finish this one. There was just too much about the politics of the NYPD and not enough about solving the cases. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Robin | 11/2/2013

    " They need a star rating for "meh". An in-depth look into a cold case unit that while interesting is poorly written and completely disjointed. Disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Caree | 8/4/2012

    " Thoroughly researched and meticulously detailed, this nonfiction tale takes us on several cold cases in NYC. It also educates the reader on the politics, background, and structure of the NYPD. I recommend this book highly for true crime fans and those who want to know how the NYPD works. "
