i read this book in a day and thought it sucked until i realized, "hey! i read this book in a day!"

I really enjoyed this book, Donald Goines has never let me down. However after finishing the book realized I started on the second book in the series, smh (note to self) check to make sure the book I'm reading isn't one far down the series line if so start from book one. On to Crime Partners which means I might have to read this one again before I read the third book
I love Donald Goines, but Death List is most assuredly not his best work. This book picks up where Crime Partners left off. Kenyatta is leading his gang of murderers/black seperatists against Detroit's white drug lords and the intolerant white police officers of the Detroit PD.

The problem with Death List is that there just isn't much of a plot. Most of Goines' books portray real life events while this book is more fantasy/wishful thinking. It just comes across as something of a pipedream rather
Good setting of the novel. Captivating.

I don't think it was his best work for sure and i couldn't finish it. It was very slow and seemed to be aimlessly telling a story that seemed to be going nowhere.
