I just finished reading Mark Bowden’s latest nonfiction crime book, Life Sentence: The Brief and Tragic Career of Baltimore’s Deadliest Gang Leader.
I've interviewed Mark Bowden (seen in the below photo) several times in the past years, and I hope to interview him again about Life Sentence for my On Crime column in the Washington Times.
Back in 2919, I reviewed another of his true crime books, The Last Stone.
You can read the review via the below link or the below text:
Mark Bowden is mostly known as a writer who covers military conflict in such nonfiction books as “Black Hawk Down,” “Killing Pablo,” and “Hue 1968.” But he also wrote true crime books based on his journalism while he was a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
