"The Streets Have No King" is one of the best books I have ever read. Before I read this book I rarely if ever picked up street lit. The story reminded me of a Shakespeare play I once read. I am glad I read this book. It was almost too good!
I recommend this book to anyone who likes Shakespeare and wants to read something more modernized. I also recommend this to someone who is in love with street lit or even to someone that is just looking for something different than they are used to. It's a great first time book.
The Story: "The Streets Have No King" is about a child who meets his mentor after the mentor gets out of prison. The mentor Kane Garrett decides to take Basil under his wing. But after making more money than Basil ever saw as a child he falls in love with the one thing Kane forbade him… Kane’s daughter. After things go horribly wrong he discovers things the hard way. Who is on top one minute will be gone the next. The streets truly have no king!
A street thriller of kidnapping, murder, trickery, and love that will have you at the edge of your seat.
After 7 years of prison, multi-millionaire drug mogul Kane Garrett is back on the streets. But instead of diving back into the drug game, he’s teaching a college class, infusing business principles with his signature ruthless edge he developed in the streets. When a student—and heavy heroin dealer—named Basil catches Kane’s eye, Kane takes him on as a protégé and together, they build the biggest, smartest drug trafficking business the state has ever seen.
But when Basil meets Moriah, Kane’s only daughter, lines get crossed and their dominant business union becomes a deadly rivalry. Welcome to a world where the kings meet their end and no one stays at the top for long. The crown always lies heavy on he who commands the streets—and Kane and Basil will fight to claim their rule, before power is toppled again, in The Streets Have No King by New York Times bestselling author JaQuavis Coleman.
