More Money Brings More Problems
on October 5, 2010
Wahida Clark is at it again in her new installment, The Golden Hustla. Nina Coles has chosen to run away since the death of her brother and best friend. She wants to start over but hustling has been her game and it is hard to let it go. Nina tries to convince herself that leaving behind her past will not affect her future. After getting settled into a new city, Nina runs into her old boyfriend, Akil, who wants to make amends by helping her gain employment. Nina starts to realize that his help comes at a price, but not one that she is willing to pay. On the other hand, she has become a valuable salesperson at her new job. She is making good money, living comfortable and is tired of everyone wanting handouts. Nina soon finds out that she is knee deep in affairs that need immediate attention. Will she be able to save herself in time?
Rinaldo is the owner of an advertising empire and does not take kindly to slackers. He is in the business of making money and must do so to satisfy his wife, Rochelle. She demands to be kept in the lifestyle she has become accustomed to. Rochelle also has something up her sleeve if everything works according as planned. Rinaldo's urges to make money, his cloudy judgment, misguided dealings and his non-caring attitude toward his employees just might ruin him if he is not careful.
Detective Houser wants to retire but a murder case lands on his desk from an advertising company he has been watching and he just cannot pass it up. He believes something is not right with WMM Advertising and he will do whatever it takes to find out, even if it means asking an unlikely person for help.
The Golden Hustla will take readers on an exciting ride with its unsuspected twists and devious characters. The author gives readers an action-packed novel that is full of juicy details. I enjoyed the mindset of these characters because just when I thought I figured one out, the character was doing something else that had me in awe. It is a fast-paced book to read, but I definitely recommend this book to others.
