Urban Fiction Street Literature (Philadelphia, Pa- July 17, 2013) - Anitbeet Productions and the author Yani bring to you an Urban Tale filled with drama, love and suspense. A Thug's Redemption tells the compelling story of one man's attempt to make amends for his wrongdoings. When his best friend is murdered in front of him, Jamal takes matters into his own hands with the help of his cousin Samir, a well-known and well-connected drug lord in Philly. But Jamal’s need for revenge leaves him caught in the middle of a drug war that is beginning between local drug dealers, corrupt Philly cops and Columbian King Pins, who are trying to muscle their way into North Philly territories. The three book series begins in inner city Philadelphia with the main characters being close friends who all have a common goal of making it out of North Philly alive. The teenagers are- Chanda, who has the unfortunate experience of seeing her younger brother gunned down right in front of her; Tamera- who still feels the sting of her mother’s death and lives with an over bearing abusive father; Deisha, an ambitious study freak who is hell bent on not becoming a carbon copy of her drug abusive mother, the brothers- Jamal and Shawn, who are in way over their heads, caught up in the street life due to Jamal’s need for revenge and lastly, Maurice, who out of them all, seems to be the only level headed person who stays out of trouble. They all manage to stick together and help one another out when they each face their own crisis. A love affair that begins between Jamal and Tamera humbles his destructive nature and pulls him away from the street life, showing that the love of a good woman can have a positive impact on a man’s life. But when Jamal’s past comes back to haunt him and threatens the love he shares with Tamera as well as the bond he has with his younger brother Shawn, Jamal reverts back to his street mentality ways in an effort to protect them both. A Thug’s Redemption is a story of love, revenge and the dangers of North Philly streets. It also is a story that demonstrates how the law of Karma works. Jamal will soon learn that revenge has its price and it will cost more than he can afford. It ends with him suffering from the most heart breaking tragedy, but prepares him for what he must do in the sequel- A Thug's Redemption 2: Jamal's Return
