When Los Angeles detective Russell Poole began investigating the killing of a black off-duty cop by a white undercover cop, little did he know that he was opening one of the wormiest cans in the history of American police enforcement. Before long Poole had established solid links that connected Suge Knight and his infamous label, Death Row Records, to the murders of both Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls and to an alarmingly large number of black cops in the LAPD. "Rolling Stone" reporter Randall Sullivan supports this unravelling of the truth through meticulous journalism, following up hundreds of leads that the LAPD chose to ignore, interviewing many key witnesses and having had the complete co-operation of Russell Poole. "LAbyrinth" offers an insider's look into the worlds of renegade cops, rival gangs and hip-hop celebrities.
