Description

UPDATED WITH NEW MATERIAL FROM THE AUTHOR

In Labyrinth, acclaimed journalist and longtime Rolling Stone contributor Randall Sullivan ignited a firestorm of controversy with the shocking account into the murders of hip hop legends Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. and one man's investigation into widespread corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department. Now updated with new material from the author, Labyrinth is a compelling tale of a grave miscarriage of justice.

In September 1996, Tupac Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. In March 1997, the Notorious B.I.G. was similarly shot after an awards show in Los Angeles. Neither crime has ever been solved. Also in 1997, highly decorated LAPD detective Russell Poole uncovered evidence that certain officers in the department were moonlighting for Death Row Records--and, when he was placed on the task force assigned to the Notorious B.I.G.'s murder, evidence that these same men were linked to the murders. The first book to bring this story out of the shadows, Labyrinth received critical acclaim, prompted two lawsuits against the LAPD, sparked an FBI investigation, and continues to be the definitive story of two of the most infamous unsolved murders in hip hop history.
