Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After serving ten years for armed robbery, Jonathan ?JC? Cole is about to get out of the joint, and he has one thing on his mind: revenge against the three men?former childhood friends, now powerful crime lords?who betrayed him to save their own skins. Richard ?Richkid? Kidman is a Playa with a capital P, at one time controlling a stable of twelve women. Alonzo ?Zo? Johnson is one of the richest drug dealers in the Windy City. And Eugene ?Lil G? Pierce ranks among the most successful con men on the East Coast.

JC feels that the time has come for him to claim what is rightfully his. His misfortune was his ex-friends? stepping-stone, and now it is time for them to pay up?in spades. He doesn?t want to kill them, he just wants to take everything away.

He does this with the help of his woman, Champagne; his best friend, Rat; and Rat?s girlfriend, Shaunna. They form a family of sorts, with JC as the leader and Champagne as the fierce mother hen, together embarking on an exciting journey into the underworld of Chicago.

In the years to come, this literary prodigy may just prove himself the voice of his generation.? David Isay, public-radio producer and co-author of Our America: Life and Death on the South Side of Chicago
