Andrew Branca, Esq., has written a very useful little book that eschews the hype and gets right down to the case law. The book is well organized into what the main defenses are for using deadly self-defense: Necessity, proportionality and reasonablness. He points out the unavoidable gray areas that permeate the court room, and show that no matter what the law says, if you shoot at someone, you had better have a pretty good reason. Jailhouse lawyering won't do you any good.
This book is written in a professorial style that requires a college -level reading ability, and even at that it is sometimes slow going. But having hard data available instead of some gun enthusiast's pontification is worth every penny.
The layout is unimpressive, but the information is worth the investment of time and money.
