"The voice of the ghetto itself." --The Village Voice

A fistful of revenge, street-style, from Donald Goines, the godfather of urban lit. . .

Eldorado Red has it all--new cars, women, and plenty of money. But when you're the top dog, the sure bet is that someone--everyone--wants to take what you got. You just never think your own flesh and blood will pull the trigger. Now Eldorado's son, Buddy, is on the run. The thing is, Eldorado wants to let him go, but in the law of the streets, retribution has a mind of its own. . .

"He lived by the code of the streets and his books vividly recreated the street jungle and its predators." --New Jersey Voice
