In Gar Anthony Haywood's All the Lucky Ones Are Dead, African American PI Aaron Gunner investigates the apparent suicide of one of the most famous rap superstars on the West Coast, C.E. Digga Jones. The job doesn't exactly appeal to him. After all, Gunner prefers to work for folks whose politics he agrees with--and he's an upstanding citizen, unlike a certain foul-mouthed cultural icon who seduced young kids into a violent gang lifestyle. So Gunner is irked when the Digga's father begs him to suss out foul play in connection with his son's suicide. Meanwhile, his other current employment is equally unappealing: serving as bodyguard to L.A.'s most conservative and controversial African American shock-jock radio personality, Sparkle Johnson, whose life has been recently threatened. But when Sparkle's car gets bombed by a mysterious and deadly admirer, Gunner begins to uncover a complicated web of inconsistencies and oddities--one being the bomber's knowledge of her nickname. And when he gets the eerie feeling he's being followed, he senses that within one of the cases may lie a lethal trap--set expressly for him.
In this installment from this first-rate series, readers get a swift-moving, entertaining tour through the mean streets of L.A. and an inside glimpse of the glitzy, high-powered, and cutthroat rap-music industry. The characters are vividly portrayed, the plot is captivating, and Haywood fans will be very satisfied. --Teri KiefferAbout the Author:
