Brian Gibbs a rising star in the literary world

A remarkably gifted writer and narrorator Gibbs is a rising star to keep watching. This a brave no holds bared author Gibbs gives an inside look at the dark violent and seductive side of the hard N.Y city streets during the height of Regans drug war. His mission is clear cut and unwavering Crime Does Not Pay and to help teach our youths a different route other than crime death and prison. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a first person account of what the streets were and still are like today

Must have!! Gripping, real and truthful tales.

Loved it! Follow up from volume 1. I highly recommend !
The stories can be used as a deterrent from a life of crime. Most if not all ends bad which is highly realistic. I commend the brother for going into such detail.
