The book will also have numerous photos from the show which capture the flavour of the local Baltimore locations. With an introduction by show creator David Simon, as well as contributions by bestselling and award-winning authors George Pelecanos, Laura Lippman, and Anthony Walton The Wire companion book will enhance the show's appeal for readers and fans.
