Review: This is my first read by this author. Held my attention from beginning to end. Enjoyed the storyline and it was well written. Insight into the life of a young man in the gang life. As a young man his family life and the things that happen, played a major role in his actions. Will he ever find peace or forever be searching. Good job N.M.K.
