Publisher Comments:

Jimmy James was only twelve-years-old when he tried drugs for the first time. That one taste of marijuana affected him the rest of his life. He didn't graduate from high school, but he did graduate with excellence from the drug game, which eventually led him into the drug dealer lifestyle.

It's that lifestyle that contributed to forty-year-old Jimmy James' arrest for the death of a female friend, forty-four-year-old Lisa Amour. A general laborer in Huntsville, he was charged with first-degree reckless homicide by use of the dangerous weapon of cocaine.

A Line 2 Die 4 provides a firsthand account of his actions and thoughts, his arrest, incarceration, court proceedings, and interactions with police, attorneys, family, and friends. At one time in his life, James felt on top of the world as a user and dealer. But a dealer's life will end in one of three ways: broke and living on the street with no family or money, dead on the street, or in prison. That's the story of James' life.
