Overview

In the hood, a snitch is the worst thing a person could possibly be. Rolling over on your best friend who has been with you through thick and thin, hungry and full, freedom and state bids - that's ''the cruelest lie told in silence.'' In this tale that plucks the innermost chords of emotion, jealousy turns to envy then to backstabbing as we observe two friends that have struggled together, hustled together and endured separate prison terms. While Jevon experiences the fruits of the hustle during his partner's first stint, Bilal humbly does his time like a true soldier after taking a manslaughter charge for his ''brother.'' Will their friendship survive the broken bond of brotherhood, or will dishonor come before death?

In the winter of â¿¿85 back in DC an unbreakable bond was formed between Bilal Davis and Jovan Price. At an early age Bilal was taking on grown man responsibilities. Too young to get a job he felt his only choice to survive as a youth was boosting and selling stolen goods to take care of him and his younger bother, Mal-Mal. He also found it his responsibility to do the time for Jovanâ¿¿s Crime. While Bilal humbly does his time after taking the manslaughter chare, Jovan begins to step his game up moving more than the old boosted goods. Jovan feels responsible for Mal-Mal being without his older brother so he looks out for him. A tragic accident occurs to Mal-Mal and Jovan feels totally responsible. Jovan feels he owes Bilal his life sow when there back on the streets Jovan handles his business as an assassin and Bilal doesnâ¿¿t have to worry about a thang. Together on the streets of DC and they are about to get involved with â¿¿the cruelest lie told in silenceâ¿ without any consent and with intentions of permantantly depriving someone of their freedom. Find out will this bond survive or will death come before dishonor. Minus the grammatically errors the story was overall a good read. The errors didnâ¿¿t take away from the story.

Bilal takes a charge of manslaughter for his bestfriend aka brother Javon. Thinking he will hold him down out in the streets he keeps his mouth shut and does his time. In jail Bilal develops and changes alot. Once out of jail he learns that everybody aint your friend and the story truly begins. I dont want to tell it all but I will say I enjoyed reading this book. Yes it has errors and typos but it is to be expected when you get a Triple Crown novel. I would recommend this read to anyone want a good fast paced read.

Although, the book is supposedly 'not' based on a true story, I feel this book is very real in every aspect. I am from D.C. and I can honestly say I knew one person who was characterized in the story. ( I won't say which one) Anyway, Jason Poole is Awesone! He carefully and strategically put this story together which sent chills up my spine. This book is a must-read. I look forward to more material by this author.

This book indeed a good read. I feel that it was based on a true story, it just felt so real. I live in Washington, DC and everything that the book was talking about I can relate to.

I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. This book was very interesting, full of twist and turns, and revealed things that happen in the game. Besides the editing mistakes and the lack of proofreading, this was a great book and I would definitely read another book by this author. This book told the story when you are in the street game you must 'TRUST NO ONE.'

I would say that this book is one of the best that TCP(Triple Crown Pub.) has to offer. Although, there were some typo's and the common grammical errors, I would say you can feel what the writer is trying to express. I also feel that this book was based on a true story because it come across so real and factual. A must read for anyone looking to buy it.
