But a case is a case and Gunner?s investigation into what really happened that night in Los Angeles is bound to please absolutely nobody.

Review quote

?Gar Haywood goes three for three with his latest Aaron Gunner mystery. Battling the cops, the community and bad news, Private eye Gunner yanks the sheet off the American nightmare of race, politics, and murder, LA style. You Can Die Trying is no joke? Spike Lee ?With an opening chapter paralleling the real-life tragedy of the Los Angeles riots, You Can Die Trying hooks your interest and never disappoints. ...The spin Gar Haywood puts on the ball of a police shooting will keep you awake nights, wondering?
