Professional reviews

"You might not like the hero of this novel. He's selfish and misogynistic, and he treats women like dirt. But there's no doubt about his credibility as a character. Richard Allen makes sure no one will easily forget this book. His silky voice paints the story of Shareef, a highly successful black romance writer who suddenly decides to write a "street book" on Harlem to prove his manhood. Allen takes listeners on an audio tour of Harlem, a once black neighborhood now going upscale. His portrayals of Shareef's old neighborhood friends are perfect. There's action, romance, big business intrigue, and, in the end, a kind of reckoning as Shareef realizes what it truly means to be a man. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
