The ALL INVOLVED Podcast

All Involved by Ryan Gattis is a propulsive and ambitious novel as electrifying as The Wire, from a writer hailed as the West Coast’s Richard Price—a mesmerizing epic of crime and opportunity, race, revenge, and loyalty, set in the chaotic streets of South Central L.A. in the wake of one of the most notorious and incendiary trials of the 1990s.

Dennis Lehane describes the novel as “a monumental achievement” and Paula Hawkins (author of the runaway hit The Girl on the Train) calls it “a heartbreaking portrait of a city tearing itself apart.” In this podcast, get exclusive author commentary and riveting stories from each of the six days featured in All Involved.
