A showcase of different approaches to values, business, and hip-hop seen through a lens that feels personal.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
This dark, rollicking mystery is the fifth in George's D Hunter series . . . D's point of view, his self-confessed vulnerability, and his deep appreciation for music, from R&B on, make this thoroughly satisfying reading.-- "Booklist"
George's passion for, and encyclopedic knowledge of, hip-hop suffuses every word of this smart, stylish novel. Although the author deftly deals with issues of predatory capitalism, government corruption, and the senseless murder of black men by America's cops, it's his handling of the tale's sex trafficking and #MeToo subplots that deserves special acclaim.-- "Mystery Scene Magazine"
