A disturbing novel that takes the reader right down on "the street" in the drug-ravaged 'hood of street-smart dealer Strike and the brutal and burned out cops who pursue Strike and his ilk. A powerful, harrowing read.
From the Publisher
A veteran homicide cop believes that at least one of two African American brothers charged with murder and drug possession is innocent, and his investigation thrusts him into a harrowing inner city landscape.
From The Critics
Price propels each scene with vivid dialogue that crackles with realism.
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.
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.
