The Shane Scully books are always a great read, and I've loved them all.

Shane's wife Alexa's car is found with a LAPD cop who's an ex-gang member shot dead and his hands cuffed behind him. Alexa is nowhere to be found. To make matters worse, it was proved that it was her gun that killed her. All of the cops think that she's guilty as sin. Well, all of the cops except for Shane. He'll break most of the laws that he's sworn to defend to make sure that everyone knows that Alexa is innocent. While he tries to get to the truth, he's mixed up in the world of rap, it's artists, and producers, and a plot of murder in the wrap world. As if this isn't enough, Shane has to deal with a homeless person. That's the basic plot, there are some other things that happen, but you'll have to read the book to find out. This is a fantastic read!

I love the characters that Cannell comes up with. They're all so true to life and seem to leap off the page.

I highly suggest you start with the first book in this series and enjoy the ride. ( )

Publishers Weekly
With his frenetic fifth Shane Scully novel, bestseller Cannell (Cold Hit) dishes out the action in forklift-sized servings. Casting aside the rules like never before, LAPD detective Scully conducts his own seek-and-destroy mission after his wife, fellow cop Alexa, is found shot in the head. As Alexa clings to life, Scully's efforts to track down her attacker lead him into the violent, vengeful world of rap music, lorded over by two of its most feared executives, Lou Maluga and his wife, Stacy, known in the trade as "the white sister." Without pause to sleep or eat, Scully fights and claws his way along, burning friends, violating laws, using his charm as well as his fists before coming face to face with his enemy in Las Vegas. Cannell's hard-boiled, if at times over-rehearsed prose ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312347367, Mass Market Paperback)

ONE IS his beloved.
Leaving L.A.'s Parker Center, Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa, agree to meet at home…but Alexa never arrives. Then Shane's called to a crime scene on Mulholland Drive, where the victim, an apparent gang member, has been executed--and left in Alexa's car. Her gun is the likely murder weapon.
THE OTHER Is his Nemesis.
As Shane desperately tries to find Alexa, his leads point to a feud between two gangsta-rap record companies, both heavily manned by Crips and Bloods. At the center of this war is a ruthless, beautiful Lady Macbeth-like white woman raised in Compton. Married to a multi-millionaire rap mogul, she is known as the White Sister.
It's his worst nightmare come true…
Shane is no stranger to big trouble, but he's never before been smeared as a "racist cop" or thrown in jail while there's a hit out on him. Much worse is the unknown fate of Alexa, and the fact that in the mysterious White Sister--who holds the clue to a sinister conspiracy--he may have met his match.
