Darren took the fall for Diamond Tony, the notorious head of the city's drug cartel. Now, two years later, Darren's finally out of juvie and determined to get even.
Working as an informant for the police, Darren infiltrates Diamond Tony's operation. But falling for sweet, innocent Jessica was not part of that plan. She's a distraction—and a liability. She's also everything Darren dreamed about while he was locked up, and with her he has the promise of a fresh start.
When a deadly turf war breaks out between Diamond Tony and the Bloods, Darren gets caught in the crossfire. And the cops think he's playing both sides. Any mistake could be his last. Darren has to stay on his game if he's going to protect Jessica—and if he's going to stay alive.

My new book, TAKEDOWN (formerly THE GAME) will be hitting the shelves in September 2013. It's a gritty urban book — like STREET PHARM and SNITCH — about a teen drug dealer who becomes a police informant to get revenge on a gang leader for sending him to juvie.
Stay tuned for cover art, sneak peeks and more.
STREET PHARM and SNITCH will also be coming out in fresh new editions. So if you already have copies, hang on to them, because soon those editions will be phased out…
