Overview

One bullet changed everything.

Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime, Harlem, NY.

Throughout his entire time in exile the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci. But one bullet changed everything.

When his enemies tried to murder Gucci they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all. While Gucci teeters between life and death Animal sets out on a bloody mission fueled by love and orchestrated by bullets...there would be no more innocents.

Alliances are formed and secrets uncovered while Animal wages his personal war on the streets of Harlem only to discover one great truth....he is but a small piece in a much greater puzzle.

From the Publisher
VOTED ONE OF THE FIVE BEST STREET LIT NOVELS OF 2012 – Library Journal

A must-read for all street lit fans. This is street lit at its best.

Library Journal
K’wan’s epic “Hood Rat” series (Eviction Notice; Welfare Wifeys) about life and death on the Harlem streets focuses this time on Animal, a rapper-turned-killer whom everyone thought had been murdered. The streets are tense as the crews of King James and Shai Clark sense a major gang war is set to erupt. Cruising on the perimeter is Animal, the vicious killer who is waiting to take revenge on the shooter who tried to kill his woman, Gucci. The author displays his writing chops by deftly constructing classic gritty scenes of torture; ruthless execution-style killings; and, of course since this is top-of-the-line street lit, several wild sex scenes. Animal shows no mercy and confides to an associate, “What does not kill me will kill them.” Indeed. VERDICT K’wan’s ear for street slang remains sharp as his major and secondary characters spring to life. He ends his twisty intricate plot with a stunner on the very last page. K’wan is the man for urban fiction, and his fans will be clamoring for this one.

    Very Good Book! Great job K'wan the book is a page turner I enjoyed it from start to finish. The only thing I did not get was the overload of characters. Can't wait for part II but hopefully with less characters.
