All InvolvedBook - 2015
In 1991, a black man named Rodney King was severely beaten by white police officers after a high-speed car chase that ended in a suburb of Los Angeles, an event that might have escaped the eyes of the American public had a witness not videotaped it from his balcony. But on the streets of the South Central neighbourhood of Lynwood, the story played out differently than on the national news. In "All Involved," Ryan Gattis weaves a narrative from the perspectives of people whose stories of the riots were never told - members of the gang underworld. Evoking the anger, the uncertainty, and the turmoil of those six days, Gattis turns Los Angeles from merely a setting to a living, breathing entity. With the velocity of a fast-paced thriller and the commanding talent of an incredibly adept writer, this is an epic story of race, revenge, and loyalty.

Violence: The first chapter of this book is a brutal murder narrated in first-person. Not for the faint of heart.
