Publisher's Summary

The port of Miami brings in millions of dollars worth of cocaine every year, and the Cartel controls 80 percent of it. The Diamond family is a force to be reckoned with, but all hell breaks loose when they lose their leader. The most ruthless gangster Miami has ever seen, Carter Diamond, leaves behind a wife, twin sons, a daughter, and a secret - his illegitimate son, Carter Jones. When young Carter learns of his father’s death, he comes to town and is introduced to the legacy of the Cartel.
Miamor is a woman who uses her beauty to enhance her skill as a contract killer. She is the leader of the Murder Mamas. When her crew is hired to take down the Cartel, they slip up, and Miamor loses her sister in the process. She is determined to get revenge. Unknowingly, she meets the son of Carter Diamond - and he immediately catches her heart. She is sleeping with the enemy, and when she finds out, she is torn between love and revenge.
Young Carter and Miamor lead two different lifestyles. They are on opposing teams, and when their worlds collide, the truth will be unveiled in an unpredictable ending.

Entranced and ready for more

This book was such a thrill to listen to. I have been waiting for more Ashley and Jaquavis audiobooks because after I had listened to Murderville I was definately hooked on their story line and the way that these to authors draw their characters and play out their story with so many twists and turns throughout the book things you would have never imagined how things would turn out. Cary Hite is amongst one of my most favorite narrators, the way that he can change his voice and go in and out of character is amazing. It seems like there are a lot of uptight people who comment on books with a lot of sex scenes or harsh language, but I loved everything about this book. It was raw and uncut gives you a taste of the real world and that is another reason that the author's have captivated me. If you don't like to hear detailed sex scenes or murders or don't like crude language then dont listen to this book. I love all the gorey details and can picture the scenes in my head, pain and pleasure. My favorite characters were Money aka Monroe and Lena and that twist in the book. I never expected what happened to happen so once you hear that part you will know what I mean. This family's story had me at the edge of my seat and I am ready for parts 2 and 3 which are downloading right now and will be commenting on them shortly. I give this book two thumbs up along with two big toes.

- Dream "LIFE just happens that way sometimes!"

A terrible waste of a credit

What would have made The Cartel better?

Stupid story. Unbelievable. Characters shallow. Writing poor. Narrator can't read. The "sound effects" were ridiculous.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ashley & Jaquavis again?


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Can't read. Mispronounces dozens of words.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Regret that I had purchased it and had to listen to it because it was the only book I had on a long airplane trip

Any additional comments?
