About the Author

Mr. BANK$, writes in the genre's of Fiction; Crime Thrillers, Drama, Erotica and Special Interest.

He’s a native of S.C where he attended College at Mid Lands Tech.; after college he joined the Army and did a four year tour. During his last year in the Army; Antwan got married then moved to Las Vegas (Sin City). It is from that point that his life took a turn in the opposite direction. Unemployed; he and his wife separated and after some searching; he took a job as a bartender and Dj at a Vegas strip club 4 days a week and worked part time at the USPS during the day. After a few months at the club he found himself addicted to the money, women and everything that came with that life. It was then that Mr. BANK$, fell in love with the adult industry and decided to leave the temp job at the USPS. After awhile in Vegas; he decided to move back down south to open his own Gentlemen's club in S.C. He ran his club successfully for 12 years, although causing much turmoil and headache for law enforcement in the Bible belt area; financially; it was a success and legal to boot. So needless to say; he and the cops would have several run ins through-out his 12 year stay. Threats were made, laws were broken, deals were done and life went on as normal as could be with his attorney by his side; as he counted every hard earned dollar. During that time; Antwan also expanded his business and started an Urban Mens Magazine with offices in Charlotte; N.C and Atlanta; where he worked with several video vixens, Urban models, Hip Hop and R&B Artist and Reality TV Stars. After a while he grew tired of fighting with the cops, the threats, dealing with the competition, etc. So in September of 2010 with earnings lower than prior years; he decided to close the club then moved to Atlanta to take on his first love of being a writer. ANTWAN states that; he use to always say; "Boy if these club walls could talk; Oh; the stories they would tell!"
Growing up down south for Antwan was a challenge; he states that he could remember telling his friends that as soon as he got of age he was leaving because there was nothing for him there. Being his Mother’s only son and with two younger sisters, he seen what his mom went through to raise them by herself and how important family was then. The lessons learned back then molded him into a good husband but the allure of Sin City for a naïve country boy would prove to hold precedent.

To be honest, I am not fond of reading novels, but his story had an exception.His story describes the best ways to success. Cooper had the wildest life experiences, but i enjoyed every bit of it. The details & conversations are breath-taking. Sex, drugs & murder,is exactly what his story all about. Why not learn all about the life in "Sin City". Great job Mr. Ant Banks! I will definitely look forward into purchasing part 2 :).. -Tasha

This book will have you at the edge of your seat from start to finish. The characters are realistic and rings true to those you would encounter in a life of crime. Las Vegas being the back drop makes it that more interesting. This is the first novel released by BANK$ and is in my opinion a best seller when it comes to Crime Thriller. Warning this is not a read for the faint of heart or immature adult, it truly holds the essence of the trio; SEX,Drugs and Murder. Prepare to go on an emotional roller coaster ride and expect the unexpected! I give this read 5 stars...
