It's not as if the homicide detectives can haul their current suspect into an interrogation room, or sweat the culprit like so many others, offering a deal in exchange for a confession or catching the perpetrator in a web of lies.

There had been 16 weeks of peace. Sixteen weeks without being called out in the middle of the night to some trash-strewn alley heavy with the sour odors of urine, beer and blood. But now the killing season was on. In 10 days last October, there were five homicides.

Although Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Ray Peavy retired Friday after nearly 40 years with the department, he didn't plan to stay away for long. Peavy is working with Hollywood producers and is pitching a reality television show that would highlight detectives assigned to the sheriff's homicide bureau, at which he spent much of his career. "L.A. Homicide" will document Peavy and other retired detectives as they examine old unsolved homicides and current detectives working unsolved cases.
