"The voice of the ghetto itself." —The Village Voice
Shocking, thrilling, and absolutely unforgettable—Donald Goines returns with another classic urban tale about one woman who is living life without any rules. . .

Almost since the day she was born, Sandra had to fend for herself on the streets of Detroit. Crime and pain were her closest companions. Then someone she had no business believing in waltzed into her life—a man willing to watch her back and show her how to make easy money. But when Chink gets caught, Sandra commits the ultimate act of love to keep her man out of jail. For a black girl lost, murder was always in the cards. . .

"Goines's narratives offer a painfully vivid account of the black underworld, where Cadillacs, crooked cops and dilapidated buildings abound and whores, corner hustlers, pushers and thieves thrive." —New York Times
