Reviews

"Corrosive, timely, vividly realized scenes of urban warfare and thwarted dreams by a writer who clearly knows his subject: the netherworld of Los Angeles in the early 1990's."--Joyce Carol Oates
"It's a propulsive, sun-baked, blood-soaked read that captures one of the most turbulent times in recent Los Angeles history. It's all the more remarkable an achievement considering Gattis...was barely in high school, in Colorado, at the time three LAPD officers who assaulted King were acquitted."--Interview Magazine
"In the end, this isn't a story about the events of the L.A. riots...it's about the city and its ability to rise from the ashes...Like the historical events it's based on, this page-turner is horrific, heartrending, and-maybe-just a bit hopeful."--Publishers Weekly
"An overwhelming and fully immersive performance from Gattis, who finds the humanity and poetry in the most inhumane of circumstances. A solid addition to all fiction collections, though not for the fainthearted."--Library Journal
"ALL INVOLVED is a symphonic, pitch-perfect, superlative novel. It is visceral and adrenalin-fuelled, yet tender and even darkly comic. It is audacious, unflinching and subversive. It doesn't judge. It swallowed me whole."--David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas
"A heartbreaking portrait of a city tearing itself apart."--Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train
"All Involved is a monumental achievement. Ryan Gattis takes the reader into the broken, outraged heart of Los Angeles during the '92 riots and doesn't blink once at what he finds there."--Dennis Lehane
