Lace up your chucks and take a walk through these North Long Beach streets with Mitch and his gang.

B0ok Review - The story opened with action. We are introduced to  Roddy as the police are trying to arrest him. The action continues all the way through with "dump and dash" scenes like the one with supporting characters C'Mac and Mitch who knew that the Feds had been tailing them,  I loved the messaging of this story that you don't have to be limited by your current circumstance. Your possibilities are limitless. He displayed this with Mitch's storyline of becoming a published writer.  The author did a good job with character and plot development.  Detective Boxer was written extremely well. His vendetta against Mitch, Roddy, and the like was palpable. I think James delivered a rich, gritty tale of street life that you have to experience on some level to fully appreciate.  I will say that there were a few times that I had no idea what certain terms or phrases meant, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment of the novella.  The ending had me on the edge of my seat. I'm rooting for Mitch.  But don't take my word for it, you can get your copy below and support the author by leaving ar review.
