Leaving L.A.'s Parker Center, Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa, agree to meet at home in one hour. Shane gets there; Alexa doesn't. In the middle of the night, he's called to a crime scene on Mulholland Drive: The African-American victim, who appears to be a Crip gangbanger, has been executed gangland style. Shockingly, the body is in Alexa's car and her gun is found nearby. But Alexa is missing. Shane's frantic investigation into his wife's disappearance soon takes him inside a bitter and violent feud between two rival hip-hop record companies.

At the center of this war is one of the most lethal adversaries he's ever encountered: Stacy Maluga, a trashy, beautiful, Lady Macbeth-like white woman raised in Compton, married to a multi-millionaire rap mogul and known in the gangsta hip-hop world as the White Sister. Shane is no stranger to big trouble, but this time he's met his match in a powerful and media-savvy enemy who could put him in jail, order a hit on him, or utterly destroy his reputation. Worse, Shane fears that his wife may be dead and that the White Sister is behind it. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " this shane scully mystery has it all - drugs, sex, and rock n roll, music in this case is hiphop. a guilty pleasure! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete | 2/6/2014

    " Stephen Cannell is a good crime writer having written some good TV series also. This book is about the vagaries of the hip hop world in Los Angeles. The plot and characters are actually quite good as is the attempts at stylized diction and writing itself. A bit of a curl up by the fire with a good escape book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce Jones | 1/25/2014

    " Stephen Cannell writes fun, page turners. Shane Scully is a flawed LA detective with lots of street smarts. A beach read, but a good one. It is sad the series has ended with his untimely death last year. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 1/22/2014

    " Decent story line. A little confusing trying to keep characters straight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonya | 1/21/2014

    " I love the Shane Scully books. He just really seems like such a great guy. I was sad to learn that Stephen J. Cannell had passed away. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 1/8/2014

    " I enjoyed this book it was probably out of the 6 I have read the 3 or 4th favorite. It deals with events that can really happen and Mr Cannell i a great store teller. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ana | 12/5/2013

    " I didn't much care for this book. It took me forever to read. I skimmed through a bunch of pages just to get to the end. It seemed like I was watching a low budget kind of movie. Not a book I would spend my money on. Luckily, I got this one for free overseas while deployed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corinne | 11/29/2013

    " Best Scully book I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 11/28/2013

    " A good read. The plot gets a bit convoluted and - with the "gangsta" names and aliases of the rap music suspects - a requires a bit of concentrations as to who is who, but a good one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gail/Ladyvolz Bowman | 11/21/2013

    " DNF, did not even get through the first disc. Could not get into it at all "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 5/2/2013

    " reads just like one of his tv shows - great beach material "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 4/11/2013

    " Great storyteller, reads like tv, Lots of detail, the hero lapd detective has a run in with homeless guy, his wife is shot and close to death, he has to clear her by entering hip hop world. Very entertaining - lots of twists "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 3/6/2013

    " Held my suspense, but there were so many names of Rap groups and gangsters, I was a bit confused. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 2/5/2013

    " This is one of my least favorite Cannell novels because there is to much shooting and violence. The novel starts negative and stays negative and I could hardly wait to finish it because I really didn't care about the characters. I rate it 3 out of 10 stars at best... and that may be too high. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 10/11/2012

    " Didn't live up to the jacket cover but still a pretty good read. Although I was happy about the ending, it was a bit disappointing to be "sentimental". Felt a bit like a cop-out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lis | 7/19/2012

    " Just O.K. Got boring/slow in parts, which was disappointing, because I've enjoyed the earlier books in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 4/20/2012

    " Pretty awful, but what should I expect with a title like that? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/25/2011

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Shane Scully; A bad cop is dead, and Shanes detective wife admits she killed him before trying to kill herself; the truth might be found amongst a bunch of rap artists and gang bangers "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 8/22/2011

    " I am a fan on Stephen Cannell's Shane & Alexa Scully books but I have to place this one way at the bottom of my list. I especially grew weary of the constant profanity used by the homeless man who is woven in and out of the book and has little significance to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorothy | 7/26/2011

    " I liked this book. In my opionion, they get a little far fetched towards the end, but it moved along at a good pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 zenbren | 7/13/2011

    " Excellent read.only recently realised that this author gave us tv series such as The Rocford Files.. Really like his work "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suz | 6/15/2011

    " First time reading a Stephen J. Cannell book and I found it to be entertaining and certainly a quick read. I'm going to find some of his other works to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 5/8/2011

    " A great story again in this series. Shane's wife is attacked and almost dies and he spends his time trying to find out what happened, and entangles himself in a plot much thicker than he expected. But it all ends happily for the Scully family, which I was glad to read! "

    " I don't like when you put Alexa in this much danger! I had to skim the book too fast to make sure the author did not write her out as too many tv writers do for episodic series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/25/2008

    " Totally escapist. Apparently not the first in the series, and I was not totally thrilled with the deus ex machina at the end, but for a waste-away-the-day mystery, it was not bad. (I always did like Rockford Files, and this has that flavor -- must mean that Stephen Cannell really DID write RF) "
