“Hip-hop culture, interracial relationships, and the AIDS crisis, among other issues, all combine in this vividly written noir thriller. From the beginning, there is nonstop action and excitement. D. is a man trying to survive the mean streets and do the right thing, even if it’s sometimes hard to know what the right things are.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
