There was no sharper con man on the streets of Chicago than Elijah Brookes. Women were his preferred prey-but no mark and no bankroll was safe when Elijah was on the prowl. Cool, beautiful Toni warned him, "Elijah, brothers be playin' games so hard sometimes they don't know when to stop. You know what I'm sayin'?" Elijah Brookes had to learn the ultimate lesson the hard way. So many games to be played, so little time.
