Publisher's Summary

A violent past. An uncertain future. The blood on his hands may never rinse clean....
Outsiders call Manuel a villain. After spending his youth entangled in inner-city gang warfare, he’s lied, robbed, and murdered his way to the top. His path was set long ago, when two killers massacred his family in front of him....
While Manuel was able to take down one of the murderers, his bloodlust has grown for the killer who got away. When he gets the chance to complete his vengeance, the city cowers beneath his thirst for retribution. As he retraces his old scars, Manuel has one chance for vindication. To succeed, he’ll need to take a hard look at the life he’s built upon the ashes of his childhood....
The Testimony of a Villain is a dark crime novel set on the unforgiving streets of the inner city. If you like graphic realism, complex characters, and an unapologetic look at reality, then you’ll love Aaron G. Harrell’s poignant tale.
Listen to the audiobook today to see a frightening villain in a whole new light….

perfectly written and narrated with Percision!

From the introduction to the last page of the book, I stayed on pins and needles. This narrative gave the feel of the Non-fictitious Life of maintaining and surviving as a person of color. Exposing the struggles and the oppress ion that fuels most to make choices that lead to successfully overcoming the obstacles of an oppressive life. I have every intention of listening to this narrative again and again…. I actually wanted the villain to win!!!

Intense, Dark & Memorable

I was surprised by this story. Was it a tragic ending or not? You'll have to judge for yourself. The story of Manuel is at once heartbreaking and shocking, especially for those of us sheltered from a life of violence and/or unspeakable tragedy. Manuel survives a horrendous beginning and finds meaning in his survival through vengeance and then later, more basic human needs. He tells both a sympathetic and a villainous, evil tale.
The narrator has a nice voice and does an excellent job. I was mesmerized when intense moments or turning points were punctuated with background noise or effects.
I would not recommend this audiobook for anyone who can't handle or doesn't want to hear about graphic violence or sex. This is overall a dark story but it has purpose and it's a worthwhile book...if your up to it.
