Another grim and tragic tale from the pen of Donald Goines. A very realistic and all too common of a tale that shows what happens when families of enemies become pawns in a street war. Situations like this are all too real and Goines goes the extra mile in adding realism, three dimensional characters and authentic dialog in the novel which ends in a Lovecraftian way,
