Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third and most explosive installment of the groundbreaking True to the Game trilogy will take you on a marathon race through the mean streets of Philly. Starting off where the second installment's dramatic cliffhanger left us, True III will finally reveal Gena's mysterious stalker and savior, as well as introduce a new killer so vicious, so cunning, so ruthless, he'll have you looking over your shoulder with each turn of the page.


The crooked cops are searching for the money, Gena's family members are now the target for Gena who's hiding from everything and everyone, as the race is on for Gena's survival. Will she manage to keep the money, can she get out of town and make a new life for herself, and will her family survive the maniacal killer that is hell bent on tracking her down? Will Gena stay, True to the Game?

Review:

"Urban fiction fans will welcome the melodramatic final entry in bestseller Woods's True to the Game trilogy, which vividly depicts the 1990s drug culture. After a vicious beating, Gena Scott, a child of the Philadelphia housing projects, awakes in a four-poster bed in a luxurious house and is overjoyed to see her drug-dealer lover, Quadir, whom she thought was dead. Quadir, she learns, has been in hiding, protected by the beautiful Dr. Amelia Hopkins, who saved his life after he was shot full of bullets. Gena is torn between her passion for Quadir and her new relationship with Jerrell Jackson, who happens to be Quadir's arch enemy. Fortunately for our heroine, neither a stalker, a rapist, nor crooked cops can thwart the progress of true love. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
