Publisher's Summary

Have you ever had everything you love snatched from your hands in the blink of an eye? Do you know what it's like to watch helplessly as those you cherish burn to a crisp? Have you ever heard a mournful cry for street justice and then realized that the only person left to heed the call was you?
Pearl Baines is a straight Harlem stunna. She and her twin sister, Diamond, are chased by some of the most notorious ballers in New York City. But while their father, ex-gangsta Irish Baines, devotes his life to rehabilitating young thugs, his sexy twin daughters fall hard for the glamour and glitter of strip clubs and street life. Unlike Diamond, though, Pearl is able to shake off the trappings of the hood in search of a better future. After graduating at the top of her class, Pearl becomes an FBI agent and plans to get as far away from the grime of Harlem as possible. But fate is cruel, and the streets always get their due. On what should have been the happiest night of her life, Pearl's family perishes in a ball of merciless flames - flames intentionally set on the orders of Mookie Murdock, her father's archenemy and the most ruthless gangsta in Harlem.
Crazed with grief, Pearl becomes unzipped. Hell-bent on retribution, she prepares for battle in New York's urban jungle. With the help of Menace, an ex-lover who once trampled all over her heart but was deeply loyal to Irish Baines, Pearl puts her FBI training and tactical skills to work in a murderous mission designed to do what her father wasn't able to: take down Mookie Murdock, and his entire crew, one at a time.
Noire is an author from the streets of New York, a #1 Essence bestselling author, and the editor-in-chief of NoireMagazine.com.
