Publisher's Summary

Lamin Michaels learned at his mother's knee the importance of chasing paper, so it's no surprise he gets into the drug game when he's just a teenager. When he meets Zion, a product of the New York City foster care and prison systems, Lamin knows he's met the perfect partner in crime. Together they build a huge narcotics empire.

Then Lamin falls hard for a beautiful girl named Lucky. Lucky makes Lamin realize there's more to life than cash and more cash. When Lamin goes legit with a career in the entertainment industry, Zion tries to keep their business going on both the street and the boardroom. It's not long before Zion becomes the target of a corruption scandal involving murder, extortion, and money laundering. Once the dirt is exposed, will Lamin and Zion be able to remain one step ahead, or will their paper-chasing days haunt them forever?

    "Couldn't Finish"

    I usually push through, but I just couldn't finish this book. No real plot to keep me interested. Based on the positive reviews, I'm not sure what I missed; however, it just didn't keep my attention.

    "Vulgar"

    This is extremely vulgar. That part totally caught me off guard. The story itself isn't too bad. I just don't personally care for the underprivileged ghetto stories.

    "Cliché"

    The best part of this book was the ending. I don't want to spoil it, but it's a different way to end what could have been just another cliché. The characters and plot line did fall under this category, however, which made the whole thing pretty tedious at times. The most realistic character was Papa.
    Overall, I wouldn't recommend it. I think you can find something of a similar nature that's just better written and doesn't fall flat, as this does.

    "👍👍👍👍"

    This is my first time hearing the works of Tracy Brown. I can truly say I enjoyed this book and the narrator Nicole Small did a great job.

    "Stereotypical story"

    Narration was good, but story was so weak. The overall story reflects poorly on blacks by characterizing most of it actors to be most concerned with sex, drugs and vanity. even the best character, Papa, who helped guide Lamin and the family , did so without seeming to offer any set of moral guidelines, but rather how to get out while the getting is good. I don't feel I came away from this story better understanding how another culture lives their lives.

    "1st book I have ever wanted to return"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    you will only like this book if you like terrible narrators with voices that just irritate you


    What could Tracy Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not write it


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I could not listen to them they drove me crazy


    What character would you cut from Criminal Minded?

    all of them


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I have not been able to get through. Some in the past have come close but this one wins as I could not get through any more than 6 chapters. awful

    "unable to finish"

    I was unable to finish this book. I did not like the language used. It was probably correct for this situation but not something I enjoy.
