Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back - though the price will be bloody and terrible...and there will certainly be hell to pay.

Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography is an intimate look at the day-to-day dealings of a drug kingpin in the heart of the ghetto. It's also the story of a boy born in poverty in Texas who grew up in a single-parent household in the heart of South Central, who was pushed through the school system each year and came out illiterate. His options were few, and he turned to drug dealing. This untold autobiography is not only personal, but also historical in its implications.

I was introduced to Freeway Rick Ross via the Joe Rogan experience podcast.

Rick provides a fascinating insight into a world that most of us will never know.

This story of an illiterate young black man growing up in the tough ghettos of South Central LA, becoming Americas top Cocaine supplier and his eventual downfall makes for a great story.

His subsequent efforts for self education, his release from prison and successful post crime life and work to help the youths that are in the position he was before his life of crime are inspirational.
