Donald Reynolds Book Greed,Lust and Vengeance, available now at Amazon | CIRCLE OF HOPE | Scoop.it

Excerpt of the Back cover

In the grimy slums of Charlotte, North Carolina, two reputed rival drug lords find themselves obsessed with a beautiful, seductive and very pregnant exotic dancer named China, who's also a mistress of deception. Both men, armed and dangerous with extensive histories of violent criminal behavior, discover themselves virtual slaves to their uninhibited lust for the sheer pleasures China gives them.

Slugs begin to fly when Raven seeks to unleash his jealous rage upon his sworn adversary, the passionate and charming fugitive Lamont King, for unsuspectingly moving in on his extremely profitable drug turf with a much higher quality of dope. Driven by greed and unable to obstruct Lamont's meteoric rise to power in the drug trade, Raven brings in the help of his gangbangin' cousin and his crew from Memphis's notorious LeMoyne Garden housing projects to settle the score. Meanwhile, Lamont develops a close-knit bond with China's crack-addicted father Irvin, and during the blood-letting and struggle for power, money and China's heart, unexpected circumstances arise that land both Lamont and Irvin in one of the most dangerous and barbaric-like federal penitentiaries in the entire U.S. for an armed bank robbery that they didn't even commit.

The direct appeals are timely filed, but will they make it out of prison? And if so, dead or alive? If alive, vengeance is definitely in order.
