I’ll be celebrating the release of my 2nd Justice Hustlers novel, THE BOSS, tonight at Laurel Books in Oakland, where you can get signed copies! But if you can’t make it or aren’t local, THE BOSS is available at bookstores and available at online retailers. For those of you who liked UPTOWN THIEF, the second book in the Justice Hustlers series focuses on Tyesha, as she and the crew find themselves in another caper.
Here’s the full description: Tyesha Couvillier seems to have escaped her disastrous past on Chicago’s South Side. She’s finished graduate school and stopped working as an escort. Now she’s director of a Manhattan women’s health clinic, and as the new boss, she’s called to lead in labor crisis. The dancers at the One-Eyed-King want to unionize, but the chain of strip clubs is controlled by Ukrainian mobsters with no regard for any laws, least of all labor codes. Meanwhile, Tyesha’s high drama relatives from Chicago have moved to Brooklyn, including Tyesha’s teenage niece who’s trying to break into the rap game. She begs Tyesha to rekindle her romance with a rap star she used to date. Tyesha initially encountered him as a rude client too drunk for sex. He became a promising suitor until he expected an easy lay because of her profession. According to his latest album he’s changed. But can she trust him? She needs a clear head to deal with her more dangerous relatives and the deadly anti-union thugs who threaten her, the strippers, and the clinic.
Come help me celebrate!
