Publisher's Summary

He watched as she screamed and yelled with every strike that the man made to her face. From her mouth, she spit blood that was rolling down her face. He continued to watch the man repeatedly hit and kick the woman in the stomach, again and again."Noooo stop! Please stop!" as she yelled his closed fist went upside her head. Michael knew he had to do something to stop the man from beating the beautiful woman, with tears running down his own face he yelled, "Daddy stop! Daddy stop!" as he ran his six year old frame between his father and mother. "Daddy stop hitting mommy!" All he felt was his father's big black hands grasp him around his neck and squeeze until he couldn't breathe. Then he threw him across the room. Michael sat on the floor crying. Partly because of the pain he felt, but mostly because of the beating his mother was getting. How does Michael, child of a crack head, fight to stay alive? What will he face and those he truly love? And do they survive the terror of the man they call Black Ice. This book tells the story of countless beatings, killings, lies, infidelity and betrayals of a crack head and how a mother and child survive the street life.

    "Wow! That's all I can say is wow!!"

    This book had me captivated from start to finish!! Beautifully written. Could have less sex scenes because of the storyline but still an excellent read.

    "Best audiobook I have listened 2 in years!"

    This book is awesome from start to finish! I love how the author wasn't afraid to "go there". Larry Herron is the best narrator I've ever had the pleasure of listening too. I didn't want this book to end.

    "Great Story"

    I'd thought this book would focus on the struggles of a child born with an addiction to drugs! OMG! I was shocked with the great story line and plan to complete viewing all parts of this book!

    "A child of s creakhead"

    This was my first time listening to a book, but the experience was a good one. My sister in law always wanted me to try, but I was either to business with homework or just working. I really enjoyed this book and now I'm about to listen to part two cant wait.
