Chronicle

Chronicle Chronicle by Black Mamba

Synopsis-
Meet Chronicle, a ruthless and ambitious young hustler aiming his sights on conquering the drug game and building a criminal empire at all costs. We take a look into his upbringing and learn how Chronicle received his rites of passage from the streets at a very young age. Growing up in the hood of Southwest Philly through the 80's and '90s taught Chronicle that anything and anyone can be used as a pawn to accomplish his goals. He is highly intelligent, seductive, and has a cold-blooded drive for success. What will happen when Chronicle faces off with the streets, a powerful and dark Vodoo priestess, the Italian Mob, the Feds, and his own demons. Will his conniving, cold, calculating ways lead him to unrivaled success, or will narcissism, lust and manipulation be his downfall? It's easy to get lost in his story as you come face to face with Chronicle's crew, and his many seductresses each and every character is unforgettable and every scene is more intense. Please be prepared for graphic sex, profanity, and scenes of horrific violence as they are vividly portrayed. This is not your average urban literature, this is a one of a kind street novel of epic proportions. You have read stories about the streets before but never one quite like this.

Book Review-Chronicle Miller as a young man was indoctrinated into street life early. This book centers around his growth and him facing off with those who are plotting against him. Chronicle is as intelligent as they come when it comes to how to manipulate and move in the gritty streets of Philadelphia. I think the author did a great job of painting a picture of Chronicle's world. He was ruthless in his dealings. He was voracious in how he satiated his many appetites, including his lustful ones. He also has what if you know anything of those who move in the streets as true hustlers, he has the gift of mental manipulation. He does it relentlessly and well. I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. The novel touches on so many issues from socioeconomic and racial disparity to misogyny. The grittiness reminds me of another street fiction author. Both have a talent for painting the story with what I can only assume is a touch of realism. The story moved well. The characters were developed and the plot well thought out. The only con I had were some of the transitions between scenes and/or dialogue. 
I think if you enjoy gritty street fiction, you will enjoy the story of Chronicle. It's a long one so settle in for the ride.  You can get your copy below and support the author by leaving a review.
