Description
FREEZE IS THE COLDEST NEW AUTHOR ON THE COME-UP.
Nikki Turner
Love him or hate him, Arkadian Kay Frost has made his mark on the streets of Baltimore as the leader of a close-knit group of friends: Mike, the ladies man; Tank, the funny guy with a short fuse; Apache, the wild one with artillery expertise; Gee, aka Dread, a cold piece of work; and Dre, who doesn t drink, smoke, or cheat and trusts no one.
Bank robberies are their bread and butter. But when a heist goes wrong, Kay ends up in prison. After serving time, he's ready to get back to his boys and start the game again. But they ve moved on to big-time drug dealing, and Kay can t duck its lure. The money is flowing, but when someone in Kay's inner circle secretly betrays him, the friends divide and engage in a full-blown war. Kay wants out before more people die, and the only person he can trust now is his woman, ShuShawn, who is not only beautiful but is as street-smart as he is. Together, Kay and ShuShawn go against the grain. It seems no one can touch them . . . except perhaps the Feds, who have been watching everything.
