Book Description

They Don’t Mind Dying…Those who reside there already know the saying. To everyone else—welcome to New Orleans—to be more specific—welcome to the Ninth Ward. They Don’t Mind Dying is an intense psychological thriller that chronicles in explicit detail, the inner workings of an inner city drug organization from its violent rise to power on through to its ultimate demise.
Forced out of his home and onto the streets by his aunt at the age of fifteen, Ben Holland meets two youths, Manny and Oscar, who would change his life forever when they introduce him to a life of crime. They Don’t Mind Dying tells the story of Ben Holland and how he and his friends rose to the top of the drug game and the violent lifestyle the gang’s members had become accustomed to. When events within the organization begin to unravel the gang’s solidarity, however, no amount of money in their possession, nor the police on the crew’s payroll, could stop the wheels of retribution from rolling in their direction. Ben Holland and his crew fight to remain atop the city’s drug trade, but the price of success is starting to exceed the effort; retirement is looking more and more appealing. Can Ben Holland and his crew stay alive long enough to exit the game? Or will fate have a say so in matters?
They Don’t Mind Dying is the first installment in The Holland Family Saga, a saga that will chronicle the Holland Family’s history along with the people who would shape their lives over many years. Starting with They Don’t Mind Dying, the creed in which Ben Holland and his cohorts live by throughout their violent reign, and traversing forward, the saga will reveal over time, the Holland Family’s struggles, injustices and inner demons as their lives come full circle and many secrets are revealed. The Holland Family Saga is more than fiction…It is real life in print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Enjoyed! June 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am always skeptical of books that claim to be about New Orleans. I am a New Orleans native & current resident & usually the books that claim to be about the N.O. really don't have a clue. Not this one. It was so real! From the neighborhoods to the way the characters talked and interacted! I really enjoyed this book. It caught my attention & keep me eagerly anticipating every page! This book had me rooting for the crew to make it. It broke my heart, made me happy, made me sad, & made me angry all at the same time. You won't be disappointed with this one! I absolutely can't wait for part 2!

I thought the book had to much bad language and to much sex. I also thought it was well written and over all I do believe it is a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Check it out December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i read this book and it was an ok read. It started off a little slow but it picks up. the story line was pretty good, but for me it had too many details at certain points and it threw me off, however, it didn't stop me from reading the book. I think the author does a good job with the story line and making a connections with his characters, i just didn't like all the extra details. i would recommend for others to check it out.

A pretty good opening to The Holland Family Saga. Mr. Black seems to has his own way of penning a story that caught my attention from the beginning. This crew of teens put together a organization that was one for all and all for one. I've had this one in my Kindle since 2012 and just got around to reading it. I will be continuing with this series and reading anything else that Mr. Black puts out.
