Brown (Criminal Minded ) packs her latest New York street fable with titillation, betrayals, violence, sex, histrionics and an amazingly improbable redemption through true love. An extremely fed up Celeste Styles sets her beloved salon, Dime Piece, on fire in an attempt to head South and start her life anew, away from her married boyfriend Rah-lo, a dealer. Meanwhile, Ishmael, Rah-lo's business partner, best friend and confidante, tries to forget his feelings for Celeste with a relationship with Nina—and a rekindled affair with Robin. Brown keeps the drama flowing and the pages turning as the love triangle converges explosively in Atlanta. (May)
