Bloodthirsty and thrumming, an original take on the source material. ... The writing is skillfully evocative, and readers will appreciate the excitement of a high-stakes power play - Kirkus Reviews
A brilliant retelling of William Shakespeare's Othello with an urban twist by New York Times best selling author SLMN
Trust no one, not even those closest to you, the brothers you grew up with on the corners, the woman who lies beside you at night. Make the mistake of trusting them, you die or they die, because the only way for two people to keep a secret is if one of them is in the ground. Same as it ever was.
When a new power rises up on the streets the game changes. Othello announces himself in furious violence, taking down the old gods and gangsters of the city. His crew are at his side, he is the man, but unseen around him fractures are forming, loyalties breaking . The only way to become the king is to kill the king... and he has a target on his back.
