I really enjoyed this book. It was not what I was expecting. Great story line with a characters that were easy to follow. The story took you through a man's development into himself and how he evolved into a better person while still maintaining his friendship with his good friend a notorious drug dealer. I would recommend this read to anyone looking for a different read.
