Overview

This is a heart throb called Court in the Streets that takes place in Durham, North Carolina. Santonio and Jason Parker are cousins who are living the high life. They're responsible for seventy percent of the city's heroin. Competition is none, and money isn't an object. Life couldn't get any better, but the fairytale ends when a string of home invasions turn their lives upside down. Amia Parker, Santonio's sister, finds herself a victim of a home invasion and a brutal rape. When she identifies Curtis Atkins, one of the cousins' workers, as one of the robbers, the cousins vow to hold court in the streets. Michael Bynum is a homicide detective that's assigned to several cases that the cousins are suspected of. Like every other crime that they are suspected of, the evidence almost does not exist. The likelihood of a conviction is unlikely, so the detective takes matters in his own hands in attempt to end the cousins' spree. When series of events bring on deadly reactions, the cousins find themselves fighting for their lives in more than one way. Not only are the State and Feds after them, they also have an enemy from the past that's determined to beat the agencies to the punch; but in his own little sick way. This isn't a story that glorifies violence and drug dealing, this is a story that shows you the other side of the game and how it affects everbody.

Kevin Bullock's "Court in the Streets" is the tale of two cousins at the top of the drug pyramid in Durham, North Carolina. The cousins seem untouchable until a series of home invasions lead to the brutal rape of one of their sisters. Add to that the fact that the State and Feds are closing in on them. Who will hold court in the streets? This book has an interesting plot with a few twists and turns that will hold readers' interest and have them wanting to know what will happen next. I wish that Bullock had painted a picture with his writing instead of telling readers about the two main characters Santonio o and Jay Parker's traits, as it would have been more effective. I also took issue with inconsistencies surrounding Brown, Santonio and Jay's lieutenant. Parts of the story related to him were flawed. Besides those issues, overall, "Court in the Streets" was a decent read. Reviewed by: Humble 3.5 stars
