That's when it hits me. I'm staring at a war zone. In South Central.

On an April night in 1992, Payasa learns that her older brother has been stabbed to death, his body left out in the road to rot. He was never involved. He was innocent. He didn't even carry a gun. And that messes with the rules, even for Lynwood, even for the streets.

But it's the first day of the LA riots, and the city is tearing itself apart. Fire-fighters, graffiti artists, nurses and law enforcement - all of them connected by this murder - find themselves caught in the mayhem. Every cop is distracted, and for the people who see the law as an enemy, it's a chance to settle old scores.

That's just too good an opportunity to miss.

“Brutal and brilliant”

Opening with a truly almost-too-brutal-to-read gangland killing, All Involved sets its tone very early on as a gritty, realistic and compelling narrative of a city in chaos.

The story develops through a wide... More

“It's letters, sure, but it means something more. It's a middle finger and a headstone all rolled into one.”

All involved: Slang for someone participating in gang activity.

Make no mistake, Ryan Gattis has not written a novel for the bystander reader. Dip in a toe, and All Involved is going to drag you under. Don’t imagine... More
