Two men think they've found the perfect opportunity--a chance to rob the stash house of Simon Shuller, one of Philadelphia's biggest drug lords. But their plans are spoiled when one of Shuller's men catches them as they break into the stash house. Temperatures flare as the men capture Shuller's worker, Poncho, and force him to show them the goods. What they didn't expect was for Poncho's partner to be armed and very dangerous. An altercation breaks out and when the smoke clears, Nard, Poncho's accomplice, is the only one left standing. Thinking quickly, Nard cleans shop and makes his escape, but not before being spotted by a few neighbors. Not wanting to kill anyone else, he makes a mad dash for the streets but wonders if the witnesses will give up his identity. What he needs now is a plausible alibi. If he doesn't come up with one fast, it could mean life in prison, or death on the streets.

Teri Woods resides in New Jersey with her two children. She is hard at work on her next novel.From AudioFile:
This is one instance when the narrator's performance far surpasses the story itself. Three dope dealers are killed in a move to rob a stash house. The killer escapes but needs an alibi for his whereabouts during the shootings. Enter Daisy, a 22-year-old stripper, who provides the killer with said alibi--for two thousand dollars. Allegedly, they were in a bar together all night. But Daisy runs when she realizes what she's covering up and is pursued by the killer, the law, and another interested party. Most of the characters in this depiction of 1986 Philadelphia are African-American, and Paula Parker-Martin's supreme efforts run the gamut--from the hard-nosed dope dealer to the streetwise but weary Daisy to a grandmother figure who rings true to life.
