Friend or Foeby D. L. Moore
Corey 'Cee' Banks wasn't the average ghetto superstar. Unlike some of the other hustlers out there puttin' in work, he was satisfied with how his life of grindin' had turned out. He was kind and fair in the streets and a loving man in his home. Everyone in the hood respected him. Then someone crossed the line and Cee learned the hard way that it sometimes might be better to be feared than to be respected.
When Cee's girlfriend, Keisha, gets killed in a botched robbery attempt, he realizes that his kindness was being misconstrued for weakness. One unexpected tragedy leads to another as Cee's life is turned upside down in a matter of days.
With his mind made up to keep it moving, leaving his past behind, Cee sets out to make his last few moves, and in the process, fight the battle between deciphering whether those he encounters are Friend or Foe.

MY CO-WORKER GAVE ME THIS BOOK TO READ. SHE SAID IT WAS GOOD, AND BOY WAS SHE RIGHT. I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK. FROM THE FIRST PAGE TIL THE LAST THIS BOOK HELD MY ATTENTION. I DON'T COME FROM THE STREETS, BUT WHEN YOU LIVE IN THAT DARK LIFESTYLE I WOULD THINK THAT YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TRUST ANYBODY. PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO TAKE WHAT YOU HAVE, AND YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU WITH ANYTHING. AND THOSE PEOPLE CAN BE FAMILY, FRIENDS, OR EVEN SPOUSES. WHEN YOU ARE DEEP IN THE GAME LIKE THAT, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE LOOKING OVER YOUR SHOULDER. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
The starting line-up...
Cee - a respected hustler of the game
Nutt - a convict; best friend of Cee and brother of Keisha
Tone- a friend of Cee and a hungry hustler of the game
Cris- road dog to Tone and down for whatever
Dreama - Cee's favorite cousin who has his back regardless
Keisha -the love of Cee's life
One of them is not what they seem, but who?
Friend or Foe was a great page turner. It kept me wanting more. With friends like these, who needs enemies? Keep the pages turning to find out who is a friend or foe! Good job D.L.

D. L. Moore's book centers on a the main character Cee, a young playa who is somewhat satisfied in the street game. Off the top, the love of his life, Keisha, is gunned down in a botched robbery at his apartment, before he gets a chance to ask her to be his wife. The story revolves around an unknown arch enemy trying to kill Cee throughout the book, concluding with an interesting surprise added with a twist. The bottomline: you 'gotta' know how to maneuver in a pit of snakes without getting bitten, paralyzed or squeezed to death. This book lives up to it's title. Good job, D. L.!

This book started off really story but the ending made the book great in my opinion the saying power of the pussy is true he was so blinded by his own girlfriends actions. This is a must read book
Well put together and is a real page turner. This book will go down as a classic. Cant wait till d.l puts something else out
I would like to let the readers know that this book will keep you reading because each and every chapter makes you want to continue to read to find out what is going to happen next. I would like to let the author know that the book speaks the truth especially from a person that grew up in the projects. I would like to say job well done.
Although I don't read a lot of urban fiction, this is a solid effort for DL Moore's first novel. If you like hip-hop literature, this book is a good buy! It keeps you engaged and you want to see what happens next. I look forward to seeing what he puts out the next time around.
