Life is supposed to be easy and carefree when you are young - but if you live in Washington D.C. it's anything but. Flashing back to the 1990s, readers enter the lives of four black men looking to gain money, power and respect. These four brothas come from different walks of life but they have one thing in common: making fast money in the harsh inner city. However, when the money comes too easily there's usually a price attached...the ultimate price.

This is the first book I have completed in a long time. Great story. The writing was average, and there was too much name dropping and explaining of slang. ( If you can't comprehend the slang in here, then the book is not for you.) other than that, I'm happy I purchased the book. I hope there will be a sequel when Red comes home. Maybe Shank becomes a rapper and Butter and Red come for him? ;-)
