Overview

MEET CAT

In Jamaica . . . he learned the art of the “jux”: robbing people by studying their everyday movements. By the age of eight, Cat was shoplifting and purse-snatching. By ten, he had his first gun. At fifteen, he committed his first murder.

MAKE THE GANG

In New York City . . . he created The Order: a secret society of thieves who played by Cat’s rules. He taught his crew how to pull off the perfect jux. Made them swear on a bible and a bullet. Robbed dealers, pushers, thugs. And raked in millions. Then Cat was betrayed—by one of his own men.

BREAK THE RULES

In Miami . . . he set up a new operation. Bigger game, bigger stakes. The targets are prime—athletes, politicians, drug lords, celebrities—and the payoff is huge. But the party scene is as dangerous as the ladies are beautiful. Cat has to watch his back and remember the rules: Never trust a thief. Never get caught. And always . . .

RESPECT THE JUX

A novel based on true events, written by a man who experienced it within two degrees of separation.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - A PAGE TURNER!

    Three Reasons Review:
    1) Reasons I chose this book:

    *I have been reviewing books for the Pump Up Your Book Tour and this book is listed on the tour. I have been reading a lot of books by black authors/urban lit, so I jumped at the chance to read this book as soon as I saw it on the Pump Up Your Book Tour!
    *I also was asked by Richarh Tyson a/k/a Daddy Rich to interview Frank C. Matthews for the March issue of Urban Image Magazine, so that really made me want to read the book even more and find out more about the author.

    2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book:
    Reasons I liked this book:

    *Cat was really determined. He may have gone about getting things the wrong way, but he got what he wanted. He was tired of how boring his life was and tired of seeing things other people had that he didn't have. He saw someone with a big wad of money, and he wanted that too. He wanted the easy life. He knew how to pull off a jux, so he just needed to recruit some people to his secret society of thieves.
    *Cat really came up with some good recruits and he was smart. After he recruited the people, he kind of stepped down and focused on finding the jobs so they could carry the jobs out.
    *Cat really knew how to pull off the job. When someone thought that they had everything that they could possibly get from the victim, Cat knew other places to look to make sure there wasn't more.
    *If you have read my blog at all, you know I am all about the sex scenes. This book had some really hot sex scenes in it.
    *I got really immersed in this book and was really rooting for Cat and his recruits, even though what they were doing was so totally wrong. I just got so caught up in the book!
    *This book was a page turner!

    I didn't dislike anything about this book!

    3.) Reasons you are recommending this book

    * I definitely recommend this book because it really was fast moving and a page turner!
    * Need I remind you about the sex scenes :)
    * Frank C. Matthews is a talented writer and you should read his work!

    OG YELLO, OG YELLO, OG YELLO! Is the Author of Respect The Jux a

    OG YELLO, OG YELLO, OG YELLO! Is the Author of Respect The Jux and not this fake frank. Frank has stolen this man's works (20 manuscript) and is living a stolen legacy. Ten Years in prison it seems wasn't enough for Frank to stop being a criminal! He owes OG YELLO more than half of everything he's made. It was The OG who gave him all the ideas that he is now parading as his own. I wonder if VADO knows he's playing the character of the real live author of the book OG YELLO AKA Raymond James! Who is unable to defend himself in the matter because he was deported back to his native country Jamaica. Are things starting to make sense now? Hear is the question I would like to know. Where did this born American (or Liberian) get the idea to write a story about a bunch of Jamaicans while doing ten years in prison? I never before heard of a black american writing about Chinese and Haitians or Indians and Russians. So why did this cat spend so much time writing about Jamaicans in such details? Where did he get all the Jamaican information from in prison if it was not from another Jamaican?!!!!! He has also released another one of OG YELLO"s work titled Below The Radar. Wait till you hear the story on that one.¿
