I adored this book and the story of a cop and a drug dealer. I still smile when I see bottles of Yoohoo...

Really a touching, gritty, realistic tale.

I recommend this book. It is a complex, fictional book about the 'street-life' of a drug dealer and the police who pursue him. Character development is excellent and subplots are numerous and thick. A long read but worthwhile. I would rate it 8/10.

From The Critics
Playboy
Price propels each scene with vivid dialogue that crackles with realism.

People
Price displays a near perfect ear for street language . . . He gets so deep under the skin of both the cops and the clockers that it's hard to believe he himself has never been either.

Powerful atmospheric; a dark vision of American life. Ricard Price balances head long narritave with moments of insight and perception. An unforgetable picture of inner city despair.
