 Growing up on the cold, mean, inner city streets of Baltimore is Netta,
leader of an all-girl clique called the Pussy Pound. With no father and a dope
fiend for a mother, Netta learns at an early age how to use beauty and her body
to get the things she wants, money, cars, and jewelry. Chasing the almighty
dollar, Netta meets Black, a local drug dealer with a deep-seated hatred for
new Yorkers, who falls head over heals in love with her. With a broken heart,
Black discovers that Netta is only after his money, and he seeks the ultimate
revenge against her life.

One of Library Journal's Best Books of 2015

"Holmes...is a noted pioneering street lit author. His smooth-flowing narrative mixes crime, sex, and sassy street language, giving his protagonists a true life-in-the-streets feel. This will more than satisfy serious readers of urban fiction."
--Library Journal (Starred Review, Pick of the Month)

"I read this book in one sitting....It's a great way to escape and be entertained for a few hours."
--Baltimore Times

"Pure entertainment."
--Hawt Reads

Dixyn Greene has it all. She is a hustler's wife, the mother of a beautiful daughter, and she owns a town house and a nice car--she's living the life. But when the feds arrest her man, Dixyn's whole world begins to crumble. Quickly things go from bad to worse--as the bills begin to mount, her ability to continue to maintain her lavish lifestyle is put to the test. Strapped for cash, her good intentions lead to bad decisions.

Enter Brian Winters, B-Dub, and her one saving grace, or so she initially believes. In Dixyn's time of need, B-Dub turns out to be no more than an opportunist with his own agenda. Dixyn becomes indebted to him and is forced to do his bidding in order to survive. With B-Dub on her back, she submerges herself into the murky waters of street life and is soon entangled in a web of lust, betrayal, blackmail, and deceit. She ultimately discovers that there are no rules in the game. In the game, loyalty is limited. Trust will get you hurt and love will get you killed.

Infamous Books, curated by Albert "Prodigy" Johnson from the legendary hip-hop group Mobb Deep, is a revolutionary partnership that pairs the Infamous Records brand with Brooklyn-based independent publisher Akashic Books. Infamous Books' mission is to connect readers worldwide to crime fiction and street lit authors both familiar and new. Releases include works by national best sellers JaQuavis Coleman, K'wan, Miasha, Prodigy, and many others forthcoming.
