Truc Thi Ly Nguyen was learning English and studying for her driver's license. Everyone drove in the United States, so the Vietnamese immigrant told others she wanted to, as well. She worked at T&T Nails, an East Baltimore salon across from a chicken shack and a tax shop. Manicures with color gel finishes sell for $20, according to a sign tacked to the wall near a Safe Streets poster admonishing people to "Stop shooting, start living. " On Monday, Nguyen was crouched at the foot basin of a man receiving a pedicure, when a man walked in, aimed a gun at the seated customer, exchanged words and fired repeatedly.

Times Book. 479 pages. $26Once upon a time, before everybody started staying up way too late, the stretch after the last local newscast was a sleepy little hamlet populated by performing poodles, "Baretta" reruns and a benevolent deity named Johnny Carson.

With that exposure, the well-lit details seen through the window disappeared, giving a clean background for the two subjects.
