Overview

The notorious West Philly native Teco Jackson had it on lock when it came to stealing cars. The women were captivated by his good looks and smooth touch. After being on the most dangerous high speed car chase ever, Teco knew it was time to change his life. He tried religion thinking that to be the way out; however, he came to find that crime was in his blood.

The score from his job landed him at the top of City Line Avenue, or so he thought. His homey, Fatboy, was his sidekick. Blue was his come up, until death played a part.

Bashi, GQ, and Cap took Teco into the Strictly Business (SB) crew, which was in partnership with Young Black Mafia (YBM). Gail Indigo Que (a.k.a. GQ), the only female member of the SB Crew, was the enforcer before Teco took her spot. This was a big move for Teco, who was nicknamed Homicide by Bashi, the SB Crew boss. Living a lavish life with money, drugs, and gorgeous women seemed promising until a major take down.

After getting out of jail, Homicide's mission was to find out where Bashi disappeared. Back on the streets of Philly, he heard lots of talk about Bashi's whereabouts and the names of those who were involved. Will the power struggle between Homicide and GQ get in the way of discovering the truth? Now Homicide is on a binge to find who snatched up his boss and to pay them back in a way that no one would ever think. Homicide owed that to Bashi for keeping him off of the streets.

Homicide decided to relocate to Washington, D.C. not realizing that things in the Chocolate City aren't very different from the City of Brotherly Love and that there is always money to be made. Headed to Washington, D.C. on an Amtrak train, will Teco ever answer the question: "The Street Life, is it suicide or murder?"

Editorial Reviews

DisilgoldSOUL Literary Review
The Street Life Series may very well be a novel capable of drawing even the most resistant reader of urban lit to take a peek inside. After all, the cover is certainly a winner, and don't forget the major conflict between Teco and GQ. A showdown is bound to ensue in this fast page turner. If Kevin M. Week's next book, "The Street Life Series: Male Exotic Stage Life" is anything as exciting as his first book, the literary world may very well have a new "Connoisseur of Urban Lit" about to take over. We (YOUnity Guild Awards) had to honor this talented author's work of fiction with the Best New Breakout Urban Lit Author of the Year 2006. The Street Life Series will climb to no.1, and before Kevin can complete the next book, be signed for a major book deal. He allows his characters to stand out more than his true-to-life personality which works. All we have to go by is our interview and this seemingly "look-out-world gaze" from the author's photo on the back of his book. WHO IS KEVIN M. WEEKS? We don't have a clue, but will advise all urban lit lovers to read The Street Life Series. Entertaining, Engaging, Authentic and a WINNER! - JUST IN! This book is dangerous and real!
Writer's Digest 15th Annual Self-Published Book Awards
The Street Life Series: Is It Suicide or Murder? is a very strong debut novel in the urban fiction genre. The plot was engaging, and the pacing was well suited to a novel of this type. The dialogue came off as very convincing, and did a good job propelling the story. The author (Kevin M. Weeks) has a very accessible prose style, which makes the book just plain fun to read. Weeks successfully conveys a sense of realism necessary for a convincing genre novel, through both dialogue and narrative. He excels at combining dialogue and descriptive passages, and keeps the story moving along nicely. The novel will be enjoyable to a wide audience.
