Random House, Inc.
In this, his fourth novel, Goines tests the tensile strength of a ghetto spawn who clawed his way to the top and fights like hell to stay there. He's known as "Earl the Black Pearl," and he's left the homeboys behind—way behind. He's cool, sharp as an ice crystal, and it seems that no one can touch him. Until someone even higher up puts the heat on and his friends begin dropping like flies—of lead poisoning. That's when Earl fights back...and all hell breaks loose!

"He lived by the code of the streets and his books vividly recreated the street jungle and its predators." —New Jersey Voice

Baker & Taylor
Clawing his way to the top, pimp Earl the Black Pearl believes he is untouchable, but when someone put a hit on his friends, he has to fight back to save his own life.
