Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the phenomenal success of Essence bestsellers Dirty Red and Still Dirty, Vickie M. Stringer takes readers on another bumpy ride in Dirtier Than Ever with Red, Bacon, and Q—the crazy love-hate triangle who makes the series a favorite among urban fiction fans.

 

Q wished that Bacon had killed Red when he had the chance. Red knew that Q’s career as a hustler was over and he was counting on starting a new legit business with the money he had made. He had once believed her when she promised that the money didn’t mean a thing and she would give it all up to be with him.

 

Bacon returns from prison and suddenly Q is left for dead. With Q out of the picture, Bacon now has Red to himself. His sights are set on being the top hustler with Red by his side. He believes Red has fi nally changed when she reveals the truth about her past.

 

But all comes to a head when the snooping detective, Thomas, suspects Red’s involvement in Q’s getting shot and the murder of Zeke, Q’s best friend. With two murders, a tumultuous love affair, and

money on her mind, Red must make a decision . . . does she turn over a new leaf or revisit her dirty ways of old?

 

Gritty, steamy, and intense, Stringer delivers another page-turning caper about a hustler in high heels who is Dirtier Than Ever.

Review:

"Urban street lit doesn't get any dirtier than Stringer's series (Dirty Red, Still Dirty) about Raven 'Red' Gomez, a former prostitute and drug dealer who keeps making questionable choices. This third entry opens with a desperate Red shooting her mate, Quentin 'Q' Carter, because her perverted ex-con lover, Bacon, wants her to-and she'll do anything to recover her stolen fortune. To reward Red, Bacon subjects her to torture and humiliation. Q hangs on to life, facing possible paralysis, while his mother and Chass Reed, his former girlfriend, stay by his side. Detroit Detective Thomas, who's bugging Q with his investigation of Zeke Morrison's death, now wonders who shot Q. Having reconnected with the trauma of her childhood abuse, Red systematically plots revenge, facing each obstacle and enemy with chilling chutzpah. Stringer's well-paced action and Red's relentless anger keeps the pages turning, but her revenge turns out almost as brutal and nasty as her tormenters' crimes. A cliffhanger ending indicates we haven't seen the last of raunchy Red." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
