Catch a ride on the roller coaster and what a ride! The title is what drew me in. I love these kind of books and I wasn't disappointed. This book, as soon as you open the cover, starts that ride and there will be a fast up and down track to follow. This is a journey has developed characters that didn't leave out the strong, minority females that are sometimes left by the wayside. We get a variety of characters, drug dealers, lawyers, murderers, gangsters, WOW, what a variety. The author doesn't give you a chance to get bored. You're wanting to know about these people, what drove them to become what they are? Some of these characters started out widely know for their accomplishments and somehow, through the fate of time and circumstances, their lives did a 180 and CHANGED drastically. But, would they be able to do the reverse 180 and gain back what they had before fate stepped in? I always like when an author gives you characters you can relate to, characters that have that friend, relative, person you know or have known. This book has them all. You could know these people. I know that possibly the language at times may offend some readers but looking at the characters and their surroundings, it's very normal. I just want more and to me that is the sign of a good book. Hoping there will be another follow up book. Don't miss out on this book. It's definitely a read worth reading.
I received a complimentary ARC copy of this book from the author, Koffi Hallman in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
