In this "do dirt, get dirt" tale, Al-Saadiq introduces an unforgettable cast of characters. The characters were so real that as I was reading, I felt I was looking right at them. First, you have Miranda, a pretty young thing who's caught up in her man's world not following her own dreams. Miranda shows her loyalty to the fullest to Sha, but is Sha loyal to her? Sha-Rock, a hungry Philly native, is trying to come up any way he can; even if it means taking something that's not his. Then there is Killa Cal, a long lost friend of Sha's who is willing to do anything for him as long as at the end of the day he can pull on his glass pipe. Sha's boy Jimmy is from another state, but is he obeying the street code? Rounding out the cast is Tammy, Miranda's best friend; or is she? Will Sha and Miranda both remain loyal in an environment full of disloyalty and greed?

This book was one of the best I've read this year. My favorite character was Killer Cal, Crazy Cal is what I called him. I was at work and I couldn't wait to get home to the book. I was telling people about Sha, Miranda, Jimmy, and last but not least my man Killer! I also enjoyed Mr.Saadiq's guest appearance giving out three and four pieces, and I'm not talking about crack or chicken. I'm talking about boxing moves. If you have not copped this book yet, you should. It will have you from the first page to the last.

This book was sooooo good that I think I would like to read it again. It was so twisting,crazy, and exciting that If you don't go get it your straight off the chain! As soon as you get throught that first chapter your holding on to your seat to see whats going to happen. You know this is a good book if its good all the way to the end. This book is so good I kept looking for any extra pages that I could read. WoW! My advice to the female out there is to never let a man side track you in anything concerning your future and what it is that you want to do.

Is there truly ever a limit to one's loyalty with love in the equation? This is a wickedly intense ride! As always Al-Saadiq has truly outdone himself! He has you so caught up in the allure of the hustle, and so very desperate to see who will prevail in the end. I mean you're reading and figuring that you know what's about to happen and ((TRUMP)) Al-Saadiq hits you hard! Your knees begin to wobble! I know that when it comes to Al-Saadiq I tend to be repetitive! I mean what else can I say? Truly people there are very few REAL contenders in this genre, and as far as I am concerned Al-Saadiq is sitting on top of that throne! If there are; by some strange coincidence any readers of today's Urban Literature genre who haven't had a chance to partake in what a reality street life is. I highly recommend that you visit True2Life and partake in the thrill of knowing that street credibility is everything! Al-Saadiq is a REAL in-da-street-dude!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet. This book is real good, it definitely keeps you interested from start to finish. It doesn't drag at all or get boring. It is also not one of those 'predictable books' you might think you know whats about to happen but you really have no idea. It is truly amazing! If you liked Coldest Winter Ever by Sista Souljah or Street Dreams by K'wan ----(definite must have) you will LOVE this one!!! Talk about gansta, it has alot of ACTION.
