The hottest young voices in urban literature and New York Times best-selling authors of The Cartel series, Ashley & JaQuavis bring you the first in a highly-anticipated new trilogy, Murderville. In the cruel underground world of the human trafficking market your life is not your own to live and love is usually lost at the hands of fate, but for Liberty and A’shai, two youngsters from Sierra Leone, their bond was too strong to break. Nothing short of death could separate the two, but when their past street life comes back to haunt them there is nothing they can do but accept their fate.

Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley and JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities. Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her 25th birthday when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell and the last she will ever hear. As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her though their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of L.A.’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

About the author (2011)

These two New York Times best-selling authors hit the scene at the ripe age of 17 when they were discovered by Carl Weber. Born and raised in the most notorious neighborhoods in Flint, Michigan it was only natural for the pair to write about the street life they knew all too well. During their freshmen year in college they both received national publishing deals and have not looked back since. With smash hit novels “The Cartel 1 and 2” which debuted on the New York time best sellers list, they have solidified themselves as two of the best in their genre, together or apart. With a roster of sixteen published novels and a hefty ghostwriting resume, they have made successful careers for themselves.
