Donald Goines, the originator of urban lit, never lets up with this raw portrayal of one man’s fight to rid the streets of drugs and crooked cops…

If you want to rule the streets, you can’t get bum rushed. Kenyatta’s got the guns and the soldiers, an army prepared to fight the power by any means necessary. But the cops have located Kenyatta’s hideout—and they’re coming in armed. Kenyatta is not giving up without a fight, so now it’s time to man up and go to war.

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