SPIN Launch Party

  • Hai Y'all 2915 West Cary Street Richmond, VA 23221 (map)

Come celebrate the launch of SPIN, the new mystery/thriller from 2-time Edgar Award Finalist, We Need Diverse Books founding member, and Virginia native Lamar Giles. There will be music, light refreshments, and, of course, a book sale and signing courtesy of Richmond's own Chop Suey Books (www.chopsueybooks.com). Hope to see you there!

One murdered DJ. Two sworn enemies. An obsessive fandom. A crusade for justice that turns deadly. Get ready for a dark & deadly thriller about life & death & hip-hop.

When rising star Paris Secord (aka DJ ParSec) is found dead on her turntables, it sends the local music scene reeling. No one is feeling that grief more than her shunned pre-fame best friend, Kya, and ParSec's chief groupie, Fuse -- two sworn enemies who happened to be the ones who discovered her body.

The police have few leads, and when the trail quickly turns cold, the authorities don't seem to be pushing too hard to investigate further. Only no one counted on Paris's deeply loyal fans, ParSec Nation, or the outrage that would drive Fuse and Kya to work together. As ParSec Nation takes to social media and the streets in their crusade for justice, Fuse and Kya start digging into Paris's past, stumbling across a deadly secret. With new info comes new motives. New suspects. And a fandom that will stop at nothing in their obsessive quest for answers, not even murder . . .
