(From the publisher):
Marcus Clay is proud of his small chain of record stores, and proudest of his new store, right in the old neighborhood - now the epicenter of the drug trade. But a black man can't get a break, even on his home turf, when the whole town is going crazy. Even his best friend, Dimitri Karras, who manages the store, is coming to work with his jaw wired tight from his newly acquired cocaine habit. A bad situation turns lethal when a car crashes in front of the store and Marcus sees someone grab a bag out of the backseat and run. The local drug lord wants what's in that bag - and will do whatever it takes to prove that he is the law in this neighborhood. Nobody, certainly not a small-time businessman, is going to stand in his way. In searing confrontations, Marcus and Dimitri must defy the darkness close to home - fighting for their lives, their livelihoods, for the very soul of the city.
