Essence best-selling author Victor McGlothin's knack for crafting superb noir fiction was showcased in the Black Expressions' selection Borrow Trouble. With this sensational novel, McGlothin brings back notorious hustler Baltimore Floyd for more seamy intrigue.

In 1947 St. Louis, Ms. Etta's is the place where a sinner can get all the boozy action he craves - that is until ladies' man Baltimore Floyd rolls into town and falls in the sack with the wrong woman.

Fantastic!!!

Where to begin? I stumbled upon this book while looking for a romance novel. Let me first say that Ezra Knight can do no wrong when it comes to narration of a book! He is by far one of the best to ever do it. He actually performs the stories. He doesn't just read. Now to the book, this was my first listen by this author. However, it certainly won't be my last. I can't wait to listen to everything he has on Audible. Generally, I don't listen to books without any Audible reviews , but this was a winner! Though there are multiple characters in the book, the character development is so good that you feel like you know each one of them personally. I was invested in each one of the characters lives. I actually cared about what happened to them. Baltimore and Penny were my favorites. Grab this book quick.

Hang on to your hats, you're going on a ride

I loved this book, it felt like watching a movie with all of the details that we tend to overlook when we're watching it on screen.

Great storytelling

Loved this narrator. Deep gravelly black male voice and smooth female. Felt I was back in the 40’s. Not too hard to take the mistreatment of the era - woven in a believable way - at least the way I wanted to hear it. Will look for more from both author and narrator

GREAT BOOK!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration was on point. At times it seemed a bit comical, but overall all it was a good book.
