He played the wrong game.
The song of preacher, college basketball star Sean "Sylk" Ross prayed that God would get him in the NBA, until he started playing games of love and power. Then the way to fame was leading him toward a mistake that could send him straight to hell...

She never looked back.
Lies, drugs, too many men-- golden skinned singer Topaz Black would do anything to get a hit to the top of the charts, even walk away from her friends and family. But surrounded by greed and lust, the love the longed for seemed to be slipping away forever.

He broke all the rules.
Brought up in South Central L.A., movie producer Gunther Lawrence learned early how to get the wealth and women he wanted-- and to turn his back on his roots. Now, blinded by Hollywood's glitter, his illusions may shatter when he discovers who really controls his career.

As their lives touch, ignite, and explode, three talented African-Americans pursue fame at any cost...and the price may be their happiness...or their lives..

An alternate selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club
