This book is cold. It's one of the shorter Goines tales but also one of the most entertaining. It's interesting that the only praise-worthy character is the Polish writer of Jewish ancestry. Everybody else are selfish hustlers, con-men and drug dealers. The background characters were not spared Goines contempt, including the man simply trying to get some decent sleep in Pawlowski's building. Does this tale reflect the way Donald Goines view of his community? I wonder.

Unlike some of his other tales, this one has a happy ending.
