Master of the crime novel, Gary Phillips knows his stuff. Monkology is a collection of thirteen stories
centered around Los Angeles PI Ivan Monk. Born and raised in South Central L.A. Phillips uses his
hometown as a backdrop for his fleshed out characters and hard boiled plotlines. Phillips has worked as
a union rep, a community organizer and headed a non-profit organization to better race relations after
the 1992 riots.
In this collection you'll encounter starry-eyed sinners, street corner revolutionaries, Hollywood hustlers, over-heated politicians, rightwing assholes, a ghost or two, cavorting cops, architects with issues, and a little old lady with a popgun?all out to make their mark in the city of dreams and despair.
They seek power at any price, and pay with the devil s own coin!
