Elliot | 3 comments Think I read this book around 10 years ago but not sure of when it was published.

The book is fiction about African American twin brothers who grow up committing crime in America. One becomes a politician (maybe mayor of NY) and I believe the other continues to commit crime until given the death sentence.

Seem to remember the book being quite hard hitting. (May of been because I was young). Detailed scene about miscarriage, regular drug use etc.

The criminal brother may get death penalty for a crime he didn't commit.

Elliot--I've removed the all caps you used in your thread title. Please use all caps sparingly, since it is viewed as yelling at people.

What genre would you call this one Elliot--literary, thriller, mystery? I'm basing the last 2 suggestions on the fact that you said that the criminal brother got the death penalty for something he didn't do.

Do you have any memories of the cover?

Elliot | 3 comments Applogies, I would say genre would be crime/thriller. But the book focuses more on the relationship between the two brothers and how they are now on seperate paths. I have no memory of the cover unfortunately

Elliot | 3 comments That's the one! This is where I've been going wrong all this time, searching for twins instead of triplet's! Thank you Kris.
