Format: Hardcover
This is the story of friends growing up in Orange Mound, an area in Memphis, Tennessee, known for drugs and shady dealings. Ant, a small time marijuana dealer, decides he's had enough and wants to pursue his passion to open a restaurant, Elaine's, named and dedicated to his deceased mother. He soon discovers some people he may consider his boys are really just out to pull him down and he has a choice to make - leave it all behind or get caught up in the street games. Which will he choose?

I found Jay Fingers' "Orange Mound" to be a fast paced and good storyline. I loved the connection Tuffy and Ant made. There were some unanswered questions. A few things were a little sketchy and left me trying to figure out how to tie everything together, but I anticipate the author is not done and things about GiGi, Kendra, Wallace and even Ant and Tuffy will be answered in the future. This one screams sequel, Mr. Fingers!

I think readers will enjoy this novel as I did. There was romance, some humor, and readers get to see the dark side of some of the characters. There was deceit, drugs, dirty cops, money and action all rolled up in this novel.

I loved the story and how all the character's plot lines were weaved in and out of each other. I would highly recommend this book and look forward to more stories from this author.

Format: Paperback
When you combine elements like revenge, suspicion, love, struggle and the desire for a better life, you are basically combining the simple ingredients that make Orange Mound so entertaining. Set in a gritty neighborhood of Orange Mound, located in Memphis, TN, the story follows very recently retired hustler Ant Sanford as he tries to live behind a life of the streets and focus on a legitimate career to better himself. Ant is supported in the story telling by a very compelling cast of characters, some very scary and some very comical, who add depth to the story and engage the reader to actually care about the outcome. Jay's development of the characters works to the story's advantage, because he shows different sides of everyone's true nature, sometimes leaving you skeptical of who the true hero and the true villain is. I would recommend this book to everyone, as it is highly engaging and very entertaining from the start to it's shocking finish.
