Overview

In a country known for its underground criminal organizations, no state in America more so deserved the titled of the city of "Cut Throats".
Cleveland, Ohio is the birthplace of many things, but more infamous for the growth and development of the notorious criminal enterprise simply know as "The Family."
What started out as simply hustling to uproot themselves from their poverty infested environment, soon turned into the formation of a tight knit organization. Known for their go hard attitudes, but feared for the ruthless way in which they rose to power. For several years the "Family" controlled the happenings in the concrete jungle of which they surveyed almost uncontested. Dedication, determination, and discipline is what got it all started. It was the glue that cemented them together, but would it be enough to keep them together.
Now the family's dominance is being tested, by an unknown enemy who is determined to stop at nothing less then complete control of the city. As tension rises, so does the body count.
After several encounters, all of which left a trail of bloody bodies, the family is forced to face the harsh realities, that it's a "cut throat" world full of "cut throat" people and in order to survive, you needed to be the one doing the cutting.
Will the family's dominance prevail? Or will they be dethroned by people who share the same ideology!

This may be Johnson's best book yet, it's like reading two stories, it's incredible how he merged two story lines into one, well written!!

Derrick writes " real urban novels, unlike so many of the other so called urban writers, Derricks books remind us that the place to look for serious urban fiction isn't in the schools of creative writing, but out there in the real world.

Each of Johnsons novels seems a little edgier than the one before. The plot is more intense and the charters are deeper. Such is the case with Cut Throat Mafia, Johnson does a good job keeping the reader guessing... the twist at the end came out of left field for me, which made the book all the more satisfying.

A tense tale of drama and revenge, of payment over due on delayed justice. Derricks Cut Throat Mafia is a story that will grab you on page one and just wont let go.

Derrick Johnson forges new territory, gritty and uninhabited characterizations, gives them life and sprit through down to earth dialogue...accomplished... He feeds our imagination with incredible visual detail. The story maintains a high level of energy with lots of unexpected action and plot twist which lead to an exciting climax and satisfying conclusion.

About two years ago I was introduced to adventure, and that was reading everything Derrick Johnson has written and published. Mr. Johnson had got to be an absolute genius when it comes to having a plot that is so intriguing that you can't put these books down. My only disappointment is it has to come to an end, thank you Mr. Johnson for many wonderful hours of enjoyment.
