Twenty years ago, Marcus “Crush” Casey was the leader of the Vicetown Kings, the most powerful crime syndicate in New York City. Then he was betrayed by his second-in-command and sent to prison.
Now he’s back on the streets and he has a lot more on his mind than just getting even.
He needs to take back everything he lost: Find the friend who betrayed him and killed his only son, keep the cops at bay, and resist the one woman he knows he can’t have. His time on the inside gave him a conscience and he also wants to help clean up the crime-infested neighborhoods that used to be his home.
Crush will take back the Vicetown Kings and guide them to protect the city and its citizens…or die trying.
Ice-T’s experience with crime and gangs in Los Angeles and his years on Law & Order: SVU make him the perfect person to tell this thrilling story of revenge and redemption. Kings of Vice marks a new entry into the type of urban fiction immortalized by writers like K’wan, Elmore Leonard, and Donald Goines.
Ice-T was born in Newark, New Jersey, and moved to Los Angeles, California. After graduating from high school he served in the United States Army for four years. He began his career as a rapper in the 1980s and was signed to Sire Records in 1987. He’s since sold more than ten million records. Ice-T formally began his acting career in the film New Jack City. He has played Detective Odafin “Fin” Tutuola on the NBC police drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit since 2000. Ice-T currently resides in North Bergen, New Jersey, with his wife, Nicole “Coco” Marrow.
