On December 3, 1976, two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica Concert, seven gunmen stormed the singer's house.The attack wounded Marley, his wife, and his manager. Little was officially released about the gunmen, but much has been whispered, gossiped, and sung in the streets of West Kingston. In "A Brief History of Seven Killings," Marlon James re-creates that dangerous and unstable time as he deftly explores the lives of a host of unforgettable characters - gunmen, drug dealers, one-night stands, CIA agents, even ghosts - over the course of thirty years. The result is a gripping and irresistible novel of power, mystery, and insight.
