Publisher's Summary

He set out to be the good son, but the streets had a different plan.

Born to one of New York City's most notorious crime families, Shai Clark has always managed to be a good kid. A college hoops star, Shai shunned the world that his father had created and focused on his dreams of going pro. Tommy, Shai's trigger-happy older brother, is next in line for the throne and rules under his father through brute force. But Poppa has bigger plans for Shai.

The situation soon turns ugly when Poppa is murdered and Tommy is removed from the equation. Suddenly Shai finds himself at the head of his father's empire, and the streets are thrown into chaos. Unable to sit idly by while the Clarks' underworld empire is pillaged, Shai takes up his father's mantle and brings his game to the streets. He quickly learns that there are two sides to every coin, and the streets hold no mercy for the weak.

Great story, but...

It's a great story. Very entertaining, however it seems clear that Ms Jones hadn't read the story before recording. Mispronounced dagos, Mac 11's, and 357's aside, it just didn't flow. She constantly stop/starts during sentences. I see she has narrated many books, so perhaps this was a one off. Either way, it didn't work.

please re-think your narrator C- at best each time

Its hard listening to Ms. Jones. Kind of nerve wrecking. You have to know what I'm referring to but it seems maybe she does it free. 😏

I couldn't listen to it.

I'm sorry, the narration is not good. The narrator's voice hurts my ears. I can't say how good the book is, I couldn't finish it.

the narration made the book boring and feel long.

I love donald goines but ice berg slim and k'wan just don't equal up.

soso read

this story was like the Godfather but the black version... not very creative two brothers one with a bad temper one a civilian but is more fitting to run it .Father wants his younger son to stay in school.It was too familiar
