Labyrinth by Randall Sullivan is a thrilling, action pact and an addicting read. The book starts with a controversial cop on cop shooting. The story tells how a white cop killed another off duty black cop but at the time of the shooting the black cop was driving erratically through traffic and cut off the other officer. One thing led to another and the white cop shot and killed the fellow officer. Racial tension was at an all time high in the LAPD (Los Angles Police Department) in the mid 1990s. The main character was a detective by the name of Russell Poole who investigates the murders of Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and the origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal and corruption witch he will later find that they are all linked to Death row records and owner of this record company Suge Night. One cop implicated over 50 cops who were involved in all of the following Drug trafficking, laundering money, robbery, and gun sales. I think the overall theme in the book was corruption because the book proves money can win over anyone even the police commissioner. I recommend this book to any one who wants a exhilarating good vs. evil book; it will give you insight on how a few bad cops can grab the department by the throat and bring them down.Was this review helpful?

This book is very multifaceted, yet Sullivan manages to tie the strings all together from police corruption, gang murders, drug trafficing, and a good detective's investigation of the two most promising rappers in history.Was this review helpful?

This book was rather interesting. It makes me question (even more than I already had) the LAPD and LVPD in their investigations and involvement w/Death Row & Suge Knight. I also like how the author talked about Tupac. He didn't portray 'Pac as some rapper w/o a cause and someone who hated everyone like I've noticed some authors do. Over all, this is an interesting book, well written.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
