Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance, only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley & JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities.
Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her 25th birthday, when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell—and the last she will ever hear.
As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her through their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, and hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of LA’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

This was a very entertaining and suspenseful story. I love the flow as it moved from one situation to the next. The characters and their plight kept me listening with hope of good fortune to turn up at the next step.
I like the storyline about two people and their difficult journey, how Asi was determined to reach back and help Liberty.
Liberty. I would want to hear how psychologically she is impacted by the enslavement.
Just waiting for my next credits so I can get the rest of the series! I would like to see this as an HBO/Showtime feature!~
Started off slow put picked up quickly. Love Cary Hite narration. I could listen to any book he reads, because he knows how to bring all of his characters to life.
I have been reading reviews for this book for the last several months and placed it in my wish list. After a birthday in the first half of April I used birthday cash to purchase three extra credits. I couldn't resist getting this book. I was kind of ticked off on how the story started. I really don't like stories that start with the end, then give the back-story as the plot. It's a major pet peeve for me. Plus I knew the book was going to dog-out my hometown of Detroit. But as I vowed to turn it off, I kept saying one more chapter then I'll turn it off. Before I knew it, I was more than halfway through the book and hopelessly hooked.
This book tugs at the essence of being a man. As a man, it is primal to protect the ones we love. However, our ability to protect our loved ones is fleeting at best, as the recent tragedy in Boston and the book illustrates. That's what this book is, it is the flight or fight reaction, courage in its rawest form and love. The book doesn't disappoint and doesn't hold back, it is true life.
I thought the ending borrowed too much from Shakespeare, but other than that, this one had my heart racing, cussing out characters during my commute and spending a lot of time reflecting on my own upbringing in Detroit, Michigan. I miss my hometown something fierce.
Yes, I would. The storyline is gripping. Very exciting and action packed.
Has some of everything- constantly holds your attention. Never a dull moment.
Life to each and every character. You hear and feel all emotions.
Definitely, didn't want to to put it down.
Can't wait for Part (Book) 3. Want to know what going on!!!!
I'll have to say 1.75. The Gideon series by Eric Jerome Dickey is still my #1 series.
When A'Sai's mom, Willow, was taken fron him. That question is a migraine due there being so many.
This is my 1st listen to Cary Hite. He is a narrator that will have me follow his work which will introduce me to other authors.
Without a doubt this book was mind blowing. The thrill and action of the street had me grinning and jumping. The drama that A'Shai and Liberty went through from beginning to end had me so mesmerized.
I went out into the field looking for a book to read. Murderville 3 kept being mentioned and how everyone is waiting for it to be released. The 1st one didn't catch my attention but w/ Ashley and JaQuavis being one of my favs I finally gave in. The. book was so good I read it in one day and then went and listened to the unabridged version. I had to turn my phone off both when reading and listening to it b/c my trance kept being broken. Like a good movie the narrator, Cary Hite, sparked their masterpiece. Get ready to be put into another world.
Addicted to Audible!
The storyline was great. Exciting from beginning to end.
The connection between Shai and Liberty.
He did a great Job!
Avid listener... I love street fiction, erotica and romance novels... I also enjoy books that challenges you to think outside the box.
So far probably in my top 5.
My favorite character in this story by far was Rocco... all the others just seemed so naive or vindictive he maintained his hood swag and loyalty to the end.
Yeah he's cool... Cary's voices made me laugh... born and raised in the Islands I always find it funny to hear Americans try to do other accents. The sound effects are great and makes the listen more interesting.
Probably Dalia... even though she is incredibly coniving.
Liberty should not have been that naive after all she had been through. It's one thing to be victimized but another to be that danged dumb for that long.
I love this book I told every one at the office now they love it
The cartel my favorite trilogy
He is the best
Yes both cried screamed clapped I did it all
Please bye u will feel like you are there
I enjoyed this book but I had just read 'Animal' and found it a more rounded book than 'Murderville'. Some aspects of the ending were predictable but that will not stop me from looking forward to the next story. The 'love story' was nicely woven into the life experience of the two main characters supporting the layers of the overall flow.
As a senior 'whitebread' male his interpretation of the dialogue enhanced my understanding of the various characters experience.
For me Liberty would make for a far more interesting dinner companion as her path was more intriguing and heartbreaking and getting a deeper feel for her survival would be fascinating.
