The Last Street Novel tells the tale of Shareef Crawford, successful African-American author of steamy romances, and his journey home to Harlem, where a search for literary inspiration leaves him in the crossfire of a world of thugs and their deadly turf battles. Besieged with more material than he could have imagined, Crawford must fight for his life before he can even begin crafting his narrative.
Filled with hardcore action, violent gang disputes, and passionate characters from the gritty inner city, The Last Street Novel promises to expand Tyree's fan base exponentially.

"The pacing is fast and the dialogue snappy....Tyree's latest should fare well and add to his substantial readership." (Publishers Weekly)
This audiobook had all the elements of being a great production -- intrigue, a good story line, a narrator with a pleasant voice, plus interesting and well thought-out characters etc. But somewhere after the climactic scene, it fizzled out into a dud. It was about an hour too long for my taste. An abridged version would have sufficed.
Good first effort for Omar Tyree as he ventures into the urban crime genre. Uneven at times with the pacing and the message can be heavy handed but I appreciate the intent. Ending wrapped up a little too neatly for my tastes but it was still an entertaining Story.
