Taylor sets the emotional stage in the opening chapter with the vicious attack of Heidi "High" Kachina and the death of her fiancé, Jayson. Fast forward one year later and High still has questions about that night.

In another part of Jersey, Shaheed is desperate. He's a marked man; marked for death unless he can pay the bounty on his head.

One fateful night, the lives of High and Shaheed intertwine, and things will never be the same...

If you start this urban drama, you'll stick with it anxious for answers. Unfortunately, you won't find many. Like main character High, I still have questions. What could have been was compromised by gaps in the storyline. There was an overuse of certain words and phrases. Someone was either "shooting" someone a look ("Vegas shot Rafeek a blank stare"; "He shot her a suspicious look"; "Faith shot Heidi a confused look") or having an emotion come over them, ("An ominous feeling came over her"; "A funny feeling came over her"; "A dark feeling came over her") alerting readers in advance that things would not bode well for the character. As a reader, I'd prefer to have things play out instead of being given a heads up of doom.

I did enjoy the two separate storylines. Each had enough to hold my attention and interest. Taylor has a gift for storytelling. But I was disappointed and felt cheated with the ending. The ending leaves room for a sequel that will hopefully address the unresolved issues. However, the purpose of a sequel should not be to complete a book. Readers should look forward to continuing on with the lives of the characters or pick up with a cliff hanger, not looking for answers to questions or issues never completely addressed in the first book. With his future work, by closing gaps and tightening up the plot, I feel that Dashawn Taylor has a promising literary career.
