In the aftermath of the verdict that acquitted four Los Angeles Police Officers of beating Rodney King, an unarmed African American man, all hell broke loose in Los Angeles (CLICK HERE FOR A TIMELINE OF THE HISTORICAL EVENTS). Not only were there protests and outpourings of rage over the verdict, but parts of Los Angeles began to burn. This novel is the story of people who took advantage of the madness and those who became the victims of the many unseen, and ultimately unsolvable, crimes. Meth heads with molotov cocktails, gangster with revenge plots, and black ops with orders to maim all roamed the city without repercussion. Even the firefighters who came to rescue people and homes found themselves targeted and attacked.

This book is violent and not at all about the politics of police brutality that sparked the five days of social unrest that brought Los Angeles to its knees. It is a one sided journey into the dangerous underbelly of a system gone wrong. In a city where justice has been absent for too, too long and gangs of all colors and races, including the police, run amuck at will.
