    One thought on “Dying Ground”

    1. Set in 1989 Oakland during a particularly turbulent time for gang fighting. It's written almost in vividly described scenes, with a huge cast of characters that I found difficult initially to keep straight. But by the end I cared a lot about the main character, Maceo, a young man who is given the choice of walking away from violence and just can't, and now that I've sorted out the characters I'm looking forward to seeing them again in the next book.
