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.

It was long with a lot of characters

I liked it. It was a very long listen and I had to keep rewinding the last chapters because it started moving really quickly as they were closing out all the characters.

Hoodlum bok 1 is a great book to read

I loved this book because it tells the story of Shai Clark and how he got his start. it goes to show how the one you least expect and the one that you groom can trade places in a matter of seconds. this book is top of the line when it comes to gangsta and action packed. I hated that poppa clark dies in this book. It shows how anyone in the game can be touched. I approve this book for anyone who wants a great read.
