Summary
"The plot against hip hop is a noir novel set in the world of hip hop culture. The stabbing murder of the esteemed music critic Dwayne Robinson in a Soho office building is dismissed by the NYPD as a gang initiation. But the victim's old friend, bodyguard, and security expert D Hunter suspects that there was much more to his death. An old cassette tape, the theft of a manuscript Robinson was working on, and some veiled threats suggest there are larger forces at work. D Hunter's investigation into his mentor's murder leads into a parallel history of hip hop - a place where renegade government agents, behind-the-scenes power brokers, and paranoid journalists know a turth that only a few hard-core fans suspect. This rewrite of hip hop history mixes real-life figues with charactes pull from the culture's hidden world. The Illuminati, FBI agents, and West Coast gangstas people the hard streets D Hunter walks down. D Hunter is a tough, black-clad product of crime-ridden Brownsville, Brooklyn, a man whose family has been devastated by violence and who has dedicated himself to protecting people in an age of insecurity. Hunter has his own secrets, his own vulnerabilities, which he fights to overcome as he becomes a reluctant private eye"--Cover
