Now, I enjoyed books 1 & 2. They were gritty, they were full of action and betrayal. Plus, I love a good shoot out scene. Dekari up the ante with book 3.
Do you want a gangster? Then you want Voorheez. I think Dekari did a good job of developing the characters by giving us some backstory it humanized them. You get some insight into the challenges that were faced just because of the color of their skin. The running them "Black Lives Matter" was well captured and ties directly into the fight for racial equality that still exists today.
As expected there was a lot of action and the potential for an unexpected romance. Batman was a standout character for me as well.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting a well-written view of street life. You can get your copy below and support the author by leaving a review.
