The Winner

Book's Awards


Camie at 14 is a wild Detroit street girl on the run from an abusive suburban home. In the underbelly parlance of Motown, she is a babytrick and ready to do anything to survive.

Ella is a beautiful black attorney and former cop, who finds herself accused of the murder of a wealthy businessman she used to date. What do these two very different female protagonists have in common in this fast-moving noir tale? More than you might ever imagine.

When they meet through Mark, a Rolling Stone free-lancer in town to write about Coleman Young's final term as Detroit's first black mayor, all three become the target of a vicious ghetto hitman and his brother. Ingeniously plotted and written with verve and dash, this third dark urban crime thiller in The detroit im dying Trilogy can be read as a standalone and will keep you guessing until its final line.
