A debut novel that screams sex, thrills, and crime

From the sandbox to the grave—that’s the motto for Johnny Ivey, Johnny Dobbs, and Larry “Sparkle” Stith. In the mean red-light district of Atlanta, the lifelong friends and partners are known as the Three Amigos. One for all and all for one.

Newly released from jail, Sparkle is ready to lead a life free of crime and violence. His lover, Beverly Johnson, is now the city’s police chief. But she is battling her own personal demons in search of peace while secretly protecting her friends and her political career.

Meanwhile, Sparkle’s dream of reform is cut short when vengeful adversaries go on a mission to take over his friends’ turf, drawing him back into the streets he was trying to escape. The three must navigate a labyrinth of trickery in order to keep their territory, their sanity, and their lives.
