    Guilty as Sin: An Urban Thriller

    I read this book as a modern parable about how prison can corrupt a person not just morally, spiritually, but twist him to do horrible things. The world out there is a bitter, cruel world for some. The young man reminded me of Oliver Twist among the perverts taking over the home of the Russian gangster and his family. Someone at Urban Books didn't read the book for the back cover doesn't have anything to do with the story within. It's a street gem about corruption, redemption, and freedom. I liked it. But these guys at the publishers should be more careful. Scary, sexy, and suspenseful.

    Guilty as Sin: An Urban Thriller

    Cole Riley is one of the most grittest street writers ever. He is as wild and unpredictable as he was back in the day with Holloway House. Guilty As Sin, his latest book,is the craziest yet with the brutal snatch on a Russian gangster and his family with the thugs. This is real adult street fiction, not some trash from a plastic fake scribe of hip-hop rants. The book makes some wise comments on race, sex, love, lust, and crime. There are several moments in the book that take your breath away. Still, the publisher should take care with the back cover because it's akin to bait and switch. The back cover is bogus but the novel is not. He's an ace performer, tells it like it is, and the book is worth every penny.
