I could relate to the grit and the humor!!!

I appreciated how Fred Brown intertwined several important or main characters all at once instead of focusing on just 1 person throughout the story.

Money and Murder is one of those books that once you start you can't put it back down.

In his debut novel, Money and Murder, author Fred Brown introduces readers to a world of drugs and money. Money is the boss of the biggest drug ring in New York, who does not play games and does not mind eliminating his competition. Money's business runs smooth because he has loyal soldiers that are more than willing to do his dirty work. Once he is informed that two of his soldiers have been hit, Money realizes that he has a problem and every problem has to be solved.

Murder is a young and talented basketball player who is college bound. He is used to making money, dealing with the street life, and knows the streets do not have feelings. Murder has his drug trade running smooth in Delaware but he is ready to move up in the game. Chanelle, Murder's girlfriend, happens to have just the connection that he needs. Will Murder get more than he bargains for?

Alex Ramos is a detective heading for retirement. Ramos has made it his mission to find the leader of the drug game polluting his streets. He will not retire until he finally gets Money off the streets. The problem is no one knows what Money looks like. Ramos starts to up the anty in his investigation of the invisible drug boss. Will he be able to catch the man and clean up the streets?

Money and Murder was a fast-paced and suspenseful read, I could not put down. It incorporated the same street-lit mentality as those I read before it but also included the true meaning of not trusting anyone. I appreciated the realistic action within the book, which made it easier to visualize. The author's portrayal of the characters made me believe that he witnessed it up close and personal. I would recommend this book to those readers who enjoy street-lit fiction.

Money & Murder was the perfect name for this book because the body count
was high & the amount of blood money made was in the millions.This was my first book for 2010 & the first time reading a Fred Brown joint & it easly earned a
four star rating.The action & bullets start flying before your done reading
the 1st chapter.A decent storyline keeps the action moving & the pages turning.
Each chapter starts off with a quote by the author that is related to what
that chapter is about.The story takes place in the 5 boros of NYC which made
this book more enjoyable,very easy to follow & relate to because I'm from one
of those 5 boros,Bklyn,NY.One complaint that I have about this book,character
developement must be work on because more detailed information about all the
main characters was needed.The way this book ended you know there will be a
sequel in the near future because the author left too many doors open & way
too many questions must be answered about the fate of all the main characters
that are still alive.For example does Murder go on to play ball in the NBA,
does Chanelle deliver a boy or a girl,where is Mooch who is now on the run the
police,is Stacks going to spend the rest of his life behind bars & what about
Money who is now laying real low until things calm down.Mr Fred Brown did a
good job writting this raw urban street tail that comes at you like an entire
season of HBO's The Wire,desparately waiting for the sequel,I'm out!!!

I LOVED THIS BOOK! Anyone who loved HBO's "The Wire" would love this book; it's ACTION PACKED and simply REAL TALK! Each chapter begins with a quote, followed by an easy read that is relative. There's a kid named Money and a kid named Murder in all of our communities. We see them every day but how much do we really know? Read this book and you'll begin to understand the mindset of those labled "Lost" or "Menaces to Society". The world is what we make it! Thanks Fred for the reality check and I can't wait for Part II.

This book very realistically portrayed life in the urban drug world. I appreciated how Fred Brown intertwined several important or main characters all at once instead of focusing on just 1 person throughout the story. It was interesting watching how so many different people came together and had their lives collide with others as the story progressed!!! Brown also tests your shock level with several "surprising" encounters and situations that you just NEVER see coming :) Very enjoyable! I loved his play on words - those of you who read it know what I mean!!
