    The Diamond family has survived murder, deceit, and betrayal. Through it all, they’re still standing tall, and a new era has begun. After surviving an attempt on her life, Breeze has moved into the queen’s position by Zyir’s side. Zyir has taken over the empire and locked down Miami’s streets; the world is in his hands. But there is always new blood ready to overthrow the throne. Young Carter has retired and moved away from the madness - that is, until he gets an unexpected visitor at his home. This person shakes up the whole family, causing chaos that threatens to bring down the Cartel for good.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cartel 4 to be better than the print version?

    The ending left even more to the imagination. I cannot wait to read the next installment!


    What other book might you compare The Cartel 4 to and why?

    None LOL this story line is absolutely realistic and sexy especially when you have been around this type of lifestyle. It gives a perspective that most people don't even know exists.


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    He is always awesome! Anything narrated by him has to be good as far as I'm concerned, he is batting 1000 with me.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Cartel 4 and why?

    Young Carter and Miamore were awesome with their South American escapades. Money was also quite interesting this time around although I hope that he will be his debonair self in the next installment.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot wait for The Cartel 5!

    Picking up where the suspenseful Payback with Ya Life left off, we’re plunged back into the hip-hop drama, where the men are hot and dangerous, the women know their shoes from their Choos, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. In a game of power and intrigue where the stakes are high and the rewards are dazzling, the losers are gonna discover there’s always a price to pay.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure, It seems that the series that this is a part of is quite complex and the fact that the entire series is not available on audible is a negative for me. There is a barrage of characters and so much to keep up with but all in all the story comes together.


    If you’ve listened to books by Wahida Clark before, how does this one compare?

    N/A I have read the actual hard backs and loved them.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Small’s performances?

    Not excited about it, she is not a good enough narrator to carry characters of both sex. Her voice just did not make this story come alive enough for me. I think that with a male accompaniment she would be perfect. Her voice is sultry and very well suited for any female character. If she and Carey Height were to narrate together they would be unstoppable.


    Did Payback Ain’t Enough inspire you to do anything?

    Nope. Nothing that I have not already stopped doing, dating drug dealers LMAO


    Any additional comments?

    This was not my favorite Wahida Clark story although it was gritty and super realistic as usual.

    Would you listen to The Cartel 3: The Last Chapter again? Why?

    Yes I would. I have the entire series and plan to listen to all of it again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the action and grit of it and the surprising end. The sexiness and danger never disappoint.


    Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?

    Miamore and Carter are always the most entertaining. I loved Zaire as well. Mecca was also convincing as the all encompassing antagonist.


    If you could take any character from The Cartel 3: The Last Chapter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Young Carter of course LOL

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas to be better than the print version?

    I have not experienced the text version (I so don't have time in my schedule right now for actually sitting with a book in hand) but this was phenomenal!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns, the truth of it, the way I could relate to it was amazing. I no devil or angel but I have been through things in my life and come from places that made this book so believable for me.


    What does Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was awesome, he is consistent in the way he portrays the characters and although having a variation of narrators is cool he is a great voice over actor.


    If you could rename The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas, what would you call it?

    I would call it, It Was All a Dream after a Biggie song lyric LOL


    Any additional comments?

    This book had me about to cry so many times it's crazy, I gasped like I was actually watching a movie, and I cannot wait to buy the next book, or 2 LOL.

    The port of Miami brings in millions of dollars worth of cocaine every year, and the Cartel controls 80 percent of it. The Diamond family is a force to be reckoned with, but all hell breaks loose when they lose their leader. The most ruthless gangster Miami has ever seen, Carter Diamond, leaves behind a wife, twin sons, a daughter, and a secret - his illegitimate son, Carter Jones. When young Carter learns of his father’s death, he comes to town and is introduced to the legacy of the Cartel.

    What made the experience of listening to The Cartel the most enjoyable?

    I could picture and unfortunately relate to much of what was going on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite characters were too many to name, all of the Cartel and Mia were all vividly painted and quite entertaining.


    Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?

    Young Carter was the best performance, very cool and sexy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cringed quite a bit. I could predict much of the storyline and dialogue but this did not stop me from listening it was amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    This story should really be made into a movie. Most females don't like watching gangster flicks but as one who watched Scarface and King of New York with my dad I really love this kind of stuff LOL. It would have to be rated NC-17 but it would be well worth it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Minnie and Mrs. Celia Foote were my favorite characters because they were so different yet had so much in common. They were both honest in their own way.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I do not remember the narrator but I know that I loved this production, I cried and laughed throughout as though I were watching before my eyes.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did cry really hard at the end of the book. I was so sad when Ablene had to leave the baby.


    Any additional comments?

    Hilly Holbrook is some piece of work, one of the best antagonists I've ever encountered.
