A raw and true-to-the-street portrayal of the underground by godfather of urban lit Donald Goines.

Trapped in jail for a petty crime, Prince hatches a scheme from his cell to make it big. Once Ruby, the only woman worthy of his brutal ambition, joins him on the outside, they take down Detroit one hustle at a time. Dealers, pimps, police, and politicians—in the blink of an eye the hood is theirs. Now the only thing certain is the cold hard truth of the streets—because with enemies waiting behind every corner, there's only one way to stay on top of the world.
