Girl from the hood
28 February 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Shamika Cotton lived in two worlds, her ghetto neighborhood and her nice job as an editor at a publishing house. She's holding a lot of drugs for some of her neighborhood pals. She's found shot to death at her apartment and the question for Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe is from which world did her death come from?

Her boyfriend Al Thompson is a piece of work, but Goren and Eames look in a different direction. The gangbangers and drug dealers from the 'hood' have nothing on these literary types. Three in particular that are focused on are literary agent Fisher Stevens, young author Pablo Schreiber who thinks he's a 21st century Norman Mailer, and older author Peter Coyote who left his muse behind years ago.

One way or another they all have a hand in her demise, morally if not legally. Watch the story and see what I mean.
