About this product
- DescriptionJohn Shann's son J. J. is a huge fan of hip-hop artist Yousef al-Salaam, formerly Deuce F., who recently converted to Sufism, a mystical order of Islam. The popular musician also happens to be on a terrorist watch list. When al-Salaam is shot outside a Manhattan nightclub, Shann agrees to investigate the murder as a favor to J. J. Was al-Salaam entangled in a feud with East Coast gangsta rapper T-Mo? Or was he caught on the wrong side of Islam extremism? The NYPD has given up on the case and, after a close call with T-Mo's thugs, so has Shann. But something--curiosity, ego, anger?--drives him to penetrate the murky mystery surrounding al-Salaam, whose search for enlightenment reminds Shann of his own quest for personal growth.
