About Book

Gage Fargo is a man of great power. His ability to eliminate the opps was impeccable, which earned him the rights to the streets and the respect of the most dangerous hitters and secret society—The Assassin Association. When he meets Constance, he steps out of the life, goes legit, and seems to be living his happily ever after. But, there’s always trouble lurking in the shadows.

Returning home from a business trip to the unthinkable has him on a fast pace seeking revenge and retribution. Gage does whatever is in his power to murder the man he believes brought turmoil to his doorstep. When he meets the beautiful Legacy Matthews, the daughter of his enemy, things change. Indecision takes place, and he is torn between love and revenge.

Book Review

Gage Fargo has a great ability eliminating the opposition which has earned him beau-co rights on the streets and the respect of the most dangerous. Gage wants to go legit, and tries to get his happily ever after. But, there’s trouble 

He meets Legacy, the daughter of his enemy and Gage is torn between love and revenge. Will Gage be able to successfully avenge the wrongs of his enemy? Or will he choose love over murder?

From cover to cover this author  grabs your attention. After his first wife’s death Gage had to learn to let Karma do her job because if you get in her way, she’ll take you out. I think we all need to learn that lesson and this author brought it home as she pulled Gage’s demons and turmoils to the surface which ran much deeper than you originally thought. 

This book was suggested by the EyeC U Bookclub on Facebook. I found it hard to find out information about this author. I couldn’t find a social media account and that was disappointing.

About This Author

I’m a native Detroiter, raised amidst the harsh conditions of inner-city urban life where I saw the worst of dark times and the best of bright times. I went on to attend college, embarked on a career in Corporate America. Then one day, I was reflecting on how I used to enjoy the art of writing. So I decided to stop thinking about it and start writing again. It is the trilogy of my experiences in urban, academia and corporate life that provide the unique style in my literary expression, culminating in my debut novel, The Kokuran
