From the killing grounds of Gary, Indiana, Dollar goes from a small pup just living and learning to a big dawg learning to live. Dollar decides against joining the typical ballers out on the streets hustling drugs to make a come up. After carefully critiquing the game, Dollar chooses a more concrete type of hustle, straight out robbin' folks. Dollar catches a case at the ripe age of 18 on the first of many planned hustles that he thought would lead him to the good life. The case resulted in Dollar being sentenced to live out the rest of his natural life behind bars. When Dollar encounters Romeo, the hardest cat in prison, he realizes that prison life exists six feet under hell. Romeo takes Dollar's mind on a manipulating roller coaster ride, which almost pushes him to the brink of insanity. In the beginning Romeo instills the fear of death in Dollar, but in the end he gives him life. When the state sentenced Dollar they never expected the affect it would have on the new life he would eventually lead. They never imagined that he would some day walk the streets again and perfect his game. Back on the streets, Dollar manages to drag everyone in his life who means anything to him into his deadly game. His bid in prison taught him one important thing that he would now apply to his hustle, how not to get caught!

THE WRITING IN THIS BOOK IS TO SMALL.THE LARGEST SIZE TEXT IS STILL SMALL. I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS BOOK, BECAUSE I CAN'T READ IT.
Even though this book was full of spelling, grammer and other verb-tense errors, the author told an excellent story. I had this book in my hand while in the tub, cooking dinner, drinking iced tea...it was just that good. I never expected such a great ending. I guess Romeo forget to tell his son that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
THIS BOOK WAS HOT.. IT HAD A COUPLE OF TWIST TO IT....I WAS INTO TO IT ....I THINK IT IS A MUST READ AND SHOULD NOT GO UNKNOWN MY FAVOR PART WAS HIM AND ROMEO
I loved this book. It was a different plot from most of the gangsta books. This is a must read, I couldn't put it down!!
This book is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It told a very realistic story of how guys in the hood live their lives and think. I never wanted to put the book down and when I got to the end I was wishing that it was more to read. The ending is also very shocking and very realistic. The title of the book descibes it to the tee. This book does a great job of describing what guys will do for the almighty DOLLAR BILL.
My goodness! I read this book in 2 days, and was just shocked when I got to the end! Ms. Jossel knows how to keep her reader's on the edge of their seats til the very end! Thank You Ms. Jossel for telling a true to life compelling tale of the streets!
