This book is about Ray Carney. Since his father was a criminal…he chose to lead his life legally and be better than what his father was. So, he owns a furniture store in Harlem & is happily married with children.
His life seems to be going great until he finds out that his cousin Freddie volunteered him to be a part of a heist to move stolen goods. From here you read about Rays constant struggles and what he is going to do to reach his goals in life.
I found this book to be hard to follow. There was a lot going on and there seemed to be many parts of the book that didn’t seem to have any connection to the actual plot. There were a lot of slow parts of this book as well. Maybe this is a book that I need to pick up and read again in the future, but this played a huge part in my rating. The writing itself was great.
