Following in his big brother’s footsteps, this bad boy can’t be trusted around his two most favorite toys – automatic machine guns and hunting knives. Trying to keep Ivan in line proves to be an on-going nightmare for Dmitry as he realizes that his brother might eventually be the end of him.
And while love was never on the agenda for Dmitry, the woman he cared deeply for has recently gotten engaged to a common wife beater. When Dmitry finds out, there might be one murder in Moscow for free.
While most kids are learning how to drive and going off to college at his age, Dmitry Medlov is cutting his teeth on murder, sex and mayhem.

Note from Latrivia S. Nelson:
I truly hope that you enjoy my latest addition to The Medlov Crime Family Series. This book is different, because it's a stand-alone. If you have never read the series, you still will be able to follow the characters and the plot of this book without having read Dmitry's Closet or Dmitry's Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen. So don't worry.
For those with sensitive reading eyes, there is no rape scene. However, for those hopeless romantics, there is plenty of love? You'll see the complex relationships between father and son, husband and wife, mother and daughter, best friends, etc.
Also, at the end of the book, you will have a few questions. They all will be answered in the last book of the series due out December 2011.
This book was written with the suggestions that have been given over the last year in mind. Each and every review has been taken into consideration, and I'd like to thank all of you for your continued support of my work.
It is my most sincere desire to get better and better at writing stories that take you from your everyday life. We have enough on our plates to keep us anchored to reality. Why not have something to pull you away for awhile? With the Medlov family you get a chance to enter into a world of make believe where you jet set across the world to foreign locales with handsome, powerful men and beautiful women, go on exciting adventures and still arrive back at your home in time to fix dinner and wash clothes for the next day?
I encourage you to read the books and share your opinions. And if you have something you'd like to share with me, email me at Latrivia@LatriviaNelson.com. You will always get a response.
Thank you again and God bless,
Latrivia S. Nelson

But like many men, Grey is a slave to sex. Marriage to Ivy would win the seat, but his desire to continue as a single man creates waves when he breaks off their engagement only to discover he wants her back. Italian lover, Lt. Nicola Agosto is one of Memphis' top cops. Living life on the edge and sleeping around is a past time he enjoys when he's not serving as the Mayor's henchman.
