Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Johnson’s novel celebrates family, blood, courage, loyalty, power, and being tough.” USA Today
“Marvelously entertaining…this would be cheap pulp fiction, but the gifted Johnson gives sweep and emotional resonance to the action-packed hijinks.”   Publishers Weekly
“Partly an African American version of The Godfather, with a similar body count… achieves [a] high standard of page-turning readability.” Library Journal
“A fast-paced saga of violence, revenge, and redemption.” Booklist
