Ryan Gattis is a writer and educator. His most recent novel, Safe, is a heist thriller about a DEA safecracker gone rogue, ripping off gang-owned drug safes in order to help citizens hurt during the market crash of 2008. It’s essentially Robin Hood Noir. The book is set in the same world of South Central L.A. as his previous novel, All Involved: A Novel of the 1992 L.A. Riots, which was grounded in 2.5 years of research and background spent with former Latino gang members, firefighters, nurses, and other L.A. citizens who lived through it.
