At the edge of my seat

This book was a great ending to the THE CARTEL series. I enjoyed the way the authors put the series together: the first book was the intro into the life of the Diamond family, the second was the back story to the mind of the killers that we met in book 1 and the difference between fantasy and reality, and this last chapter was the final answer to all the questions you have wanted to know and seeing how things would really play out. The narrator CARY HITE is dabomb.com I appreciate the animation in his voice and the way he has brought this series to life it's a truly amazing talent. I think this duo is great together on the way they have created their stories and I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to listen to a story that has you wanting more and more. There were a lot of violence, some sex scenes, and the language was crucial but to me that is what makes this a great book. I found myself relistening to the book to mentally relook at different things that I may have missed and answer questions that I may have not been clear about. I also made sure that I bought all 3 books before I started listening so that I didn't miss anything. GREAT BOOK INDEED.

Rat-a-tat-tat-tat...Blown Away By The Cartel3!

This book didn't let me down. It was action-packed and full of suspense and still able to keep it's "street swag". I was glad that Breeze was finally rescued but can she overcome her forced addiction and live to have the happily-ever after with Zaire or has he moved on? Will Mecca get out of the game--without paying for his sins? Can Carter get The Cartel through another war, this time with the Mexican mafia? Will Murda avenge Mia's death and take down The Cartel definatly or will Carter succeed? WHAT A GREAT LISTEN! My only question is will there be a Cartel 4--so much was left open.

Very pleased

Ashley and JaQuavis are my new faves. From "Murdah Mommas to "The Cartel" series I am hooked. Mecca was like a cat with nine lives. My fav character was "Z". Im not happy about the ending though. The narrator gives me life with his different accents. Loved it and can't wait to see what I'll read next from them.

Sleep with the fishes!

Following the astonishing twist at the end of the prior volume, everything changed. We find MiAmour still in the basement enduring unspeakable torture. Robyn and Aries continued their murder operation in Los Angeles. Murder met the women in L.A. after his release from prison. An unexpected delivery will take them back to Miami. Breeze is still a captive of Matee. A natural disaster grants her freedom but unfortunately, from the frying pan into the fire. Through a highly unusual and completely improbable situation, Carter discovers Mecca’s secrets. The turmoil in Carter’s mind was almost unbearable. The Feds got their hands on Carter but Carter and his associates are too slippery to be held for long. While in lockup, Carter meets a new contact that puts The Cartel back in business better than ever. In speaking with his new contact Carter said he didn’t believe in exploitation but isn’t the act of supplying drugs a form of exploitation? Carter’s new contact possesses one more unbelievable surprise for Carter. So many things for the Diamond family had gone terribly wrong, it was long overdue for something good to happen. But their lives were not destined for good times.
