Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The high priestess of the hood, Nikki Turner, is back with the novel fans have been feenin for: the sequel to her #1 bestselling novel, A Hustlers Wife.

Des, Virginias slickest gangsta, is about to become a dad when he is charged with the murder of his own attorney. But with Yarni, his gorgeous wife (and a brilliant lawyer), now calling the shots, Des isnt going back to the slammer without a fierce fight. Even with the heat on, Des manages to take his game to the next level and finds a new hustle, one that will allow him to possess the three things all major players desire: money, power, and respect. He becomes a preacher. Reluctantly, Yarni stands by her man as he trades in his triple beam scale for a Bible and a Bentley and makes his Church of the Good Life Ministry a welcoming place for all sinners to step up to the altar.

But when Dess nephew is killed in the high-stakes heroin trade and Des learns that someone close to him okayed the hit, the dyed-in-the-wool gangsta sets aside the Bible for the gospel of the streets-even if it means risking the one person whos always had his back.

Review:

"Yarni Taylor, a successful lawyer who has dedicated herself to helping 'minority men caught up in the wrath,' fights to keep her hustler husband out of prison in this anemic tale of treachery and dedication among the rich and ghetto-fabulous. After spending 10 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit, Des Taylor is pardoned, released and makes Yarni a wife and a mother. Des also returns to a life of hustling, and after two years of freedom is framed for another murder. Yarni swears to exonerate the man to whom she has devoted her life. As the couple work to keep Des free, they also contend with a myriad of minidramas — an attempted rape, a kidnapping and the murder of a loved one. Turner (A Hustler's Wife) spares no clich in this thin story (the bling quotient is staggering), and readers may feel frustrated at the author's constant and simplistic explication of her characters' thoughts and actions. Fans of Turner's earlier works may find something to appreciate, but the uninitiated will have serious trouble." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In the long-awaited sequel to "A Hustler's Wife," Des finds a new hustle--he becomes a preacher. As success begins to go to his head, and he falls victim to his own game, Yarni now finds both her loyalty to Des as well as her faith tested.

About the Author

“Forever a Hustlers Wife is one of the most-anticipated sequels of this century. Nikki Turner has once again taken street literature to the next level, further proving that she is indeed ‘The Queen of Hip Hop Fiction.”

-Zane

“Always surprising, Nikki Turners prose moves like a Porsche, switching gears from tender to vicious in an instant.”

-50 Cent
