Description


Growing up on Philadelphia’s gritty streets, Jermaine Banks was used to fighting, but life has now thrown him some unexpected hooks and jabs. Almost thirty years old, with a three-year-old son who worships the ground he walks on, a pregnant girlfriend whose family hates every breath he takes, and a slain best friend whose death racks him with guilt, Jermaine realizes it’s time to change. But can he step up to the challenge, or will he continue to be a trouble man?

About the Author


Calvin Sharpe is living proof that money is the root of all evil. He sacrificed his family for his pursuit of the almighty dollar and used money to solve all his problems. But now his two biggest secrets—shady business dealings and an abandoned child—have been exposed, and his bank account can’t save him. When both his family and the FBI demand answers, Calvin goes on the run. After hitting rock bottom, he decides it’s time to face his responsibilities—to both the law and his family, including the son he left behind.
