All Involved by Ryan Gattis

For six days, Los Angeles is a city ablaze.

For six days, seventeen people are caught in the chaos.

For six days, Los Angeles shows the world what happens when laws are no longer enforceable.

Ernesto Vera is walking home from his job at a taco truck when three guys jump out of a car and assualt him. Ernesto's not in a gang, he's not involved, but his sister is - and when Payasa hears that her innocent brother has been murdered, she wants revenge. As widespread rioting breaks out across the city, Ernesto's death triggers an astonishing sequence of events, not just for the gangs involved, but for the firefighters, nurses and law enforcement who must deal with the consequences.

In April, 1992, after one of the most notorious, racially charged trials in American history, the city of L.A. exploded in violence.

All Involved tells the interconnected stories of seventeen characters over six life-changing days, and transforms the truly extraordinary story of the L.A. riots into vivid, electrifying and addictive work of fiction.
