Overview
A raw and true-to-the-street portrayal of the underground by godfather of urban lit Donald Goines.

Trapped in jail for a petty crime, Prince hatches a scheme from his cell to make it big. Once Ruby, the only woman worthy of his brutal ambition, joins him on the outside, they take down Detroit one hustle at a time. Dealers, pimps, police, and politicians--in the blink of an eye the hood is theirs. Now the only thing certain is the cold hard truth of the streets--because with enemies waiting behind every corner, there's only one way to stay on top of the world.

"The voice of the ghetto itself." --The Village Voice

"He lived by the code of the streets and his books vividly re-created the street jungle and its predators." --New Jersey Voice
