Overview

After a fatal firebombing, gangsters hire Ivan Monk to prove them innocent
The Cruzado family wakes in the middle of the night, their lungs burning with smoke. Staggering out of bed, the father tries to rally his family to escape their house. When his daughter and mother don’t make it onto the lawn, he goes back in for them, never to return. This small housing development bungalow was supposed to be a new start for the Cruzados. Instead it became a tomb. The logical culprits are the Ra-Falcons, a street gang that holds sway over the Cruzados’ neighborhood. Only gangsters could be twisted enough, the police think, to toss a Molotov cocktail into a little girl’s bedroom. But when the gang’s leader hires private eye Ivan Monk to prove the Ra-Falcons’ innocence, Monk unearths a conspiracy far more sadistic than any violent gang.

Gary Phillips (b. 1955) is a critically acclaimed author of mysteries and graphic novels. Born in South Central Los Angeles, Phillips grew up reading comics and classic pulp fiction, and took inspiration from heroes like Doc Savage when he created his first series character, Ivan Monk, in the early 1990s. A private detective adept at navigating the racial tensions of modern Los Angeles, Monk has appeared in four novels and one short story collection, Monkology (2011). Phillips introduced his second series character, Martha Chainey, in High Hand (2000), and followed that rollicking tale of a showgirl’s mafia troubles with two more books. Phillips has also found success with graphic novels, penning illustrated stories inspired by classic noir and pulps. When not writing, he spends his time with his family, his dog, and an occasional cigar. Phillips continues to live and work in Los Angeles.
