When you blend the work of a highly skilled author with one of the heroes of spoken-word recording, you ought to get a slam dunk. And there’s no disappointment here as both deliver in spades. William Caunitz knows his subject from the inside out and takes readers on a hair-raising ride into some of the darkest places of the inner city. Low-life crooks deal drugs. On-the-take cops spawn a drug war. A young mother doubles as a contract killer. Frank Muller takes listeners deeper inside Caunitz’s characters by delivering the gritty, streetwise dialogue in the voices of the people. African-American jive talk. Crime-family confrontations. Working-cop slang. All are delivered with the force of a sledgehammer. Caunitz and Muller deliver a compelling experience. T.J.M.
