    Damn, but this was good and hell of enjoyable It moves fast, it s got that pulp feel where you always know the color of the whiskey label and the size of the man s lapels It made me think of Gil Scott Heron s The Revolution Will Not Be Televised and this is a tale of revolution pure and simple, taking everything positive in the biggest baddest gangs and turning them into a force for a racist government to reckon with For just a taste of the prose Drop those names doctors I have known, lawyer Damn, but this was good and hell o...
