Los Angeles Timesgang reporter Michael Lyons has just left his favorite downtown saloon when he is shot and wounded on the sidewalk two blocks from City Hall. After the initial shock, fellow reporters put together a betting pool. The bet? Who Shot Mike? There are a lot of contenders. When the LAPD's investigation stalls, theTimesruns editorials critical of the police. Then, when detectives uncover an audio tape of Lyons talking to a gang member about the benefits of getting shot, they release the tape. The embarrassed newspaper editor fires Lyons, who then sets out on the streets of Southside Los Angeles with a vengeance to find the shooter. When three seemingly unrelated people are murdered on the streets of L.A., Lyons connects them to his own shooting. The tie-in? An imprisoned, notorious gang shot-caller known as Big Evil, who Lyons made famous in a gang profile and whose younger brother is among the victims. But who is doing the killing?

Streetwise, gritty, and authentic . . . Krikorian takes you on a ride you won't soon forget.

Lee Child,New York Timesbest-selling author ofNever Go Back

The debut novel from Krikorian, a Los Angeles Times crime reporter, is a grim thriller that brings a sense of bleak reality to the streets of Los Angeles. Krikorians language is stark, graphic, and bitterly humorous, not unlike that of George Pelecanos...it moves with speed and purpose.
