"Street legend Woods goes hardcover but stays True to the Game
."—Library Journal on ALIBI
"Street-lit pioneer Woods (True to the Game
) makes her hardcover debut with this gritty, botched robbery tale. While giving a sympathetic voice to her financially desperate heroine-who entertains no fantasies of knights in shining armor and uses sex to get what she wants-Woods observes that easy cash comes with a steep price. Her fans are sure to demand this; buy multiple copies."—Library Journal on ALIBI
"Woods writes with feeling and a strong sense of her Philadelphia setting; in addition her characters manage to become more than just stereotypes they initially appear to be. Fast-paced and exciting, Alibi
is an action-filled story about the desperate life of one urban girl and the of consequences trying to break away. Woods' following will snap this up, but it can find a wider audience with thriller readers who like George Pelecanos' The Turnaround
and with fans of the urban crime drama The Wire
."—Booklist on ALIBI
"This New Jersey author has the urban fiction genre locked up."—Sunday Star Ledger on ALIBI
"Urban fiction fans will welcome the melodramatic final entry in bestseller Woods's True to the Game trilogy, which vividly depicts the 1990s drug culture."—Publishers Weekly on TRUE TO THE GAME III
"Woods keeps it raw in this gutsy sequel that features the round-the-way girl who fell hard for Quadir, the millionaire drug dealer."—Essence magazine on TRUE TO THE GAME II
