K’wan delivers his bloodiest story yet.
“One bullet changed everything.”
Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem.
Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.
While Gucci teeters between life and death, Animal sets out on a bloody mission fueled by love and orchestrated by bullets. There will be no more innocents. Alliances are formed and secrets uncovered while Animal wages his personal war on the streets of Harlem, with the end result revealing one great truth: he is only a small piece in a much larger puzzle.

This is an awesome book! The detail of each character is so lively! Cary Hite makes each character seem so real and K'wan makes sure you are left wanting to know more about each of them. After listening to this piece I was completely hooked. Animal's passion for Gucci was animalistic to say the least. Animal's survival was epic and I wanted him to be her hero. But not only is Animal able to overcome but his friends prove to be the most loyal in the jungle streets of the city. Bravo!
Yes. I loved this book.
Very well written and even better delivery. The book is raw and gritty. It gave me insight into the life and thinking of a street thug and gang life. Kids I thought of as clueless and thoughtless I see are far more complicated. No matter our many, many differences we all share similar stuggles. In one world its banking in another it loan sharking.
I have not listened to Cary before but I am gonna look for his other readings. He was awesome. It felt like I was watching a movie instead of listening to a book. He brought each character to life. Absolutly fabulous. I've listened to hundreds of audio books over the last 10 years and Cary ( at least with this reading ) ranks with the best of the best.
I am a writer from Toronto. I am 34 and hooked on audio books.
This is a great episode of the Urban epic. Animal is an awesome character, but so are all the others. Get all of K'wan's books. They all get my stamp of approval.
I don't know - I didn't read the printed version. The audible was very well done though.
Zo-pound. He was just cool. James Bond type cool. He handled every situation with such style. And he was a good guy and a bad guy all at the same time. Great character.
Animal. Great voice acting for this character.
My only complaint about this audio book is that there were too many characters. I would have enjoyed it better in written form because I could go back and remind myself who each person was. But in audio form it was a little annoying because I found it hard to keep track of who was who, especially because I listen in my car over a few days times so it's not a straight-shot listen. I would definitely read more of K'Wan's books. What a fantastic and unique literary voice. I'm bummed that I didn't realize that this was a book in a series. Now that I know there's a series I'll go back and start from the beginning!
Yes, I would recommend this book to others because the storyline has energy.
My favorite character is Animal, of course!
I can't pick a character that Cary Hite performed better or was my favorite.
At least one of the most memorable characters is Frankye. She had pride and guts.
This is a bloody and violent novel. If you have a faint heart, brace yourself!
I don’t usually gravitate toward street fiction, if that is a genre (drug dealers and hustlers). Lately I have come across a few that have piqued my interest, this being one of them. This was a REALLY GOOD BOOK! As with most fiction, the authors throw some stuff in that make you say, “Riiiiight that could happen” (sarcastically). There’s never a dull moment. Well worth my gamble to purchase. I will read more books from this author. The book had, love, loyalty, betrayal, gangster, the opposite of a gangster the security guards, lol.
Knowing I have read a book within a series excites me, because, I know there are more good books to read. I have to go figure the sequence and listen away. Pick them up and enjoy a slice of pie from the other side of the tracks.
I have no idea, there is nothing to work with.
The entire thing.
I have wasted time and money, please do not make the same mistake by buying this piece of trash. It is not even worth investigating. Move on.

story line was poor for any narrator to perform
worst book i've ever tried to listen to.
I couldn't get through the entire book. It just wasn't for me. The book jumped around too much and was hard to follow...too many characters to keep track of.
The performance wasn't the problem.
This book was unorganized. It starts at one point, but quickly goes into another story line without any connection. The story jumps around and you can't tell which person the narrator is trying to be.
