Publisher's Summary

The kingpins of Oklahoma City, one from the north side and one from the south side, push pounds of weed, gallons of PCP, and kilos of cocaine through the corridors of the OKC, using very different methods to keep their people in line. King is the leader of the north side crew. Along with his protégé, Tippi, he runs his crew with deadly force. Each member knows there is no room for error when it comes to getting money on the north side. Flamboyant, the leader of the south side crew, is the opposite. His crew is tight out of loyalty, not fear.

King and Flamboyant know nothing of each other, especially the fact that they are both doing business with the same connect. The money is good for all involved, and it's a win-win situation for Charli and Toni, the suppliers. They keep the reins tight on both leaders, because a war on the streets would be detrimental to their thriving business in Oklahoma City.

Everything goes awry when Flamboyant's woman, Shayla, becomes torn between her current man and the one who used to rule her universe - King. Once the lines are crossed, there's no going back, and the war that Charli and Toni are trying to avoid becomes a reality.

A love triangle fueled by two men who would gladly give their lives for the woman they love is causing death at an alarming rate. Is Shayla worth losing what these two men have built? In the end, which kingpin of Oklahoma City will remain standing?

Not Serious

The narration voice threw this book completely off. I couldn't even finish it. The story was already struggling and the narrator took it over the "this book sucks" ledge.

OK Story

I do understand what the author wanted us to understand, but this book was extremely too long and drawn out. The characters were well developed but in my opinion this is a typical story about 2 different King Pins working for an organization and wanting power. All in all it is OK in the OKC.

Thrilling

Starts off slow, but ultimately grabs you when you least expect it. Will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

Who You Think Is Not Who You Think

Would you consider the audio edition of Carl Weber's Kingpins: Oklahoma City to be better than the print version?

No, Doubt Miirron Willis does an exellent job but as funny as this may sound it seems like I fell into a movie. Its like I start reading then I hear and see everything, I forget I'm reading I'm in my own world. I see the surroundings , hear the voices.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Ooh ya. As both kingpins gave you definitions of one what one it had me on edge that they were going after the same THINGS.

Which scene was your favorite?

Thats hard to chose. 1 isNo doubt when Flamboyant, and King were right next to each other at the food bar in The Golden Corral.

Who was the most memorable character of Carl Weber's Kingpins: Oklahoma City and why?

Thats a hair puller to just pull one. Lets say Tony b/c as soft as he may seem he stands by his word!!!!!!😎

Any additional comments?

Like a movie. I movie I read the book first then a month later I listened so loved it loved b/c I new I knew Mirron Willis was do amazing like he does with his other narations.
