How It Went Down is an exceptionally well written book that captures the varying emotions of several different people who were affected by one murder. Magoon easily moves from perspective to perspective, which gives the reader the opportunity to understand the in inner workings of gangs, a heart broken family, people in the neighborhood, a killer, and individuals seeking their own 15 minutes of fame. How It Went Down allows you to form an opinion and make the short leap from fiction to reality. Overall, I would highly recommend this book.

Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book
