What the Critics Say

"Treasure Blue continues and solidifies his position as the true heir to Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines. A book full of gritty realism, violence, drug abuse, and hope; the book is simply off the damn hook!" (African American Literary Book Club)

WOW, A Must Listen, Really

This was by far one of the best books I have ever listened to. The narrator did an excellent job and the story was well written and flowed nicely all the way through. You must take this journey with Keyshia and Clyde!

The Power Of Love

As I type this review, I can hear Luther Vandross singing in his low and silky voice "thats the power of love a song that I was never all that fond of. My teenage daughter was helping me browse titles since I had two credits burning a hole in my cyber pocket. She saw this title and squealed with delight, Mom, get this one! You'll like it, I promise!" She said the same thing about The Coldest Winter Ever, so I told her my paswwrd and had her xpress pay. I streamed it, not wanting to wait for the download and was captivated. The love story was so poignant that it brought tears to my eyes at several parts of the book. If you cry when love and justice pprevail, read this book. If you root for those who can overcome insurmountable obstacles, read this book. If you still believe that a mothers love is one of the best gifts in the world, read this book.
