The deadliest ride-or-die chicks in Memphis have a new rival. Meet the Cripettes. They’re the realest of the real—raging war with both the Queen Gs and the Flowers. But when all’s said and done, only one gang can reign supreme…

The streets of the Dirty South have never been meaner as the ruthless women of warring hoods are just a few body bags away from total domination. Determined to rain bullets on Shotgun Row, lieutenant Lucifer teams up with Profit, head gangsta of the Vice Lords and a man bent on revenge. Good girl gone bad Ta’shara sets her sights on knocking her evil sister off the throne—but she’s unprepared for what’s ahead. Qiana’s deal with the devil to take ambitious Yolanda out of the picture plants her at the center of a manhunt that will jeopardize her own position. And as Queen G LeShelle’s list of enemies multiplies, the final knockout may come from the last person she expects. While the war zone expands, these gangsta divas take no prisoners for the chance to rule it all…

Praise for De’nesha Diamond

“Diamond tells it like it is.” —Publishers Weekly

“A nonstop, hard-hitting page-turner.” —Tu-Shonda L. Whitaker on Hustlin’ Divas“Diamond’s ear for street talk comes across loud and clear … a violent and profane tale, which launches a gritty new series. The divas here are realistic characters, and the pacing zooms. . . .” —Library Journal (starred review) on Hustlin’ Divas
