Editorial Reviews

Review

“After twenty years a man walks out of prison and into as vivid and powerful a story as I have read in a long, long time. From the first sentence, you know that this is the real thing. The writer understands crime and desperation and anger, and the secret places in the heart that hide behind the violence. What an extraordinary ride!”
--Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of Hybrids

Format: Paperback
Lots of action and violence and a decent plot. Good gangster, hustler, jailhouse, street life type book. Not too much sex or too much "character development" which is my personal preference. I prefer more action and dialogue. Speaking of which, Ice could have used some help with the logistics or simply have based it in California. The language is more west coast and maybe even a little southeastern or southwestern. The dialogue is not really that of the northeast and definitely not NYC, but that is a small thing. I believe he and his co-writer are both from the west coast. Why they chose to use NYC for the background I am not sure. All in all, I enjoyed it. There is a follow up to this one, "mirror image," that I look forward to reading. Good job.

It's like American Gangster meets the Soprano's meets Pulp Fiction. Terrific, well drawn characters with great dialogue give this glimpse at the the modern underworld of NYC an entertaining and compelling vibe. I recommend it to anyone and and look forward to the sequel.

I picked this book up because I was intrigued by the cover and the synopsis - it reminded me of GTA. The story within is filled with action and drama as Marcus "Crush" Casey begins his intricate plot to overthrow his once loyal friend turned most hated enemy. The beginning keeps you guessing, wondering exactly how his plan will come together? How long can he dodge the gangs with a bullseye on his back, and stay a step ahead of his sneaky parole officer who seems to have a trick up his sleeve? The words of wisdom he recalls from his prison mentor gives Casey the feel of a Jedi warrior on a mission, torn between the blood thirst of the streets and his higher calling. At times it seems he is smart enough to want more, but in the end I think he falls short. As strong as the story began, along with some of its powerful pieces throughout, the ending could've had more impact than it did - but entertaining.
