Sinopsis:

IN 1992, LOS ANGELES BURNED Later as embers cooled, the body of a murdered Korean liquor store owner is unearthed during a ground-breaking ceremony at the infamous intersection of Florence and Normandie. Against a backdrop of increasing racial tensions, black private eye Ivan Monk searches for the killer. Then another body turns up. And while the FBI and the Rolling Daltons-the largest gang in the city-dog his trail, Monk questions whether there's more than simple murder happening. Questions that take him from the ghetto to the wealthy confines of the city's powerbrokers. Monk is propelled toward a conclusion that may foment another VIOLENT SPRING in the tarnished City of Angels.

Review:

This rough, strong, very political mystery marks the debut of a new kind of Los Angeles private detective--an Easy Rawlins for the '90s and beyond. Ivan Monk is hired by a group of Korean merchants to find out who killed one of their members for the specific reason that Monk is an African American, and the Koreans see him as a public relations asset. Monk sees himself more as a street cleaner or avenging angel, and on his journey of discovery he finds villains of every race and shade. Violent Spring catches the racial and social tensions of Los Angeles in a completely original way.
