    The truth at last!

    Who killed Biggie and Tupac? It's a question that's haunted law enforcement, the music world and anyone committed to justice for decades. Now at last the answer is laid bare in this shocking, provocative and courageous book. Murder Rap is the most important and entertaining new true crime book or this or any other season.

    Great Job! What a book!

    Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls were killed in gang-related drive-bys. Ex-LAPD Detective Greg Kading digs deep into gang culture. "Murder Rap" singlehandedly obliterates the racist myth that corrupt black cops conspired with a corrupt black police chief to execute and cover up the murders."
    -Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Chuck Philips "A step by step high stakes investigation, Murder Rap is as riveting as any novel I have read. What makes it all the more powerful is that this mystery story is real."
    -- Michael Connelly

    Highly recommended - its about time!

    Wow! I have been following these cases for years and read most everything about them. I got an advanced readers copy of this book and was blown away. Finally we get the answers we've all been hoping for. Detective Kading ought to be commended.

    Amazing Story!!

    This book is amazing! It digs deep into the rap music world and Kading's investigation leads to some incredible discoveries about these two legends - Tupac and Biggie. Kudos to Kading for having the guts to write this book and shame on the LAPD for their mismanagement of this case. You won't be able to put this book down once you start.

    This book proved to be an invaluable resource in my senior resea

    This book proved to be an invaluable resource in my senior research project which was about the conspiracy behind the Biggie Smalls murder and clearly detailed what investigative work has been done by the LAPD after all of these years. Kading's search for the truth made this book very compelling and informative.
