OVERRIDE

Kings of Vice

Ice-T and Mal Radcliff

Forge Books

Twenty years ago, Marcus “Crush” Casey was the leader of the Vicetown Kings, the most powerful crime syndicate in New York City. Then he was betrayed by his second-in-command and sent to prison.

Now he’s back on the streets and he has a lot more on his mind than just getting even.

He needs to take back everything he lost: Find the friend who betrayed him and killed his only son, keep the cops at bay, and resist the one woman he knows he can’t have. His time on the inside gave him a conscience and he also wants to help clean up the crime-infested neighborhoods that used to be his home.

Crush will take back the Vicetown Kings and guide them to protect the city and its citizens…or die trying.

Ice-T’s experience with crime and gangs in Los Angeles and his years on Law & Order: SVU make him the perfect person to tell this thrilling story of revenge and redemption. Kings of Vice marks a new entry into the type of urban fiction immortalized by writers like K’wan, Elmore Leonard, and Donald Goines.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

He carried a small nylon sports

REVIEWS

Praise for Kings of Vice

“After twenty years a man walks out of prison and into as vivid and powerful a story as I have read in a long, long time. From the first sentence, you know that this is the real thing. The writer understands crime and desperation and anger, and the secret places in the heart that hide behind the violence. What an extraordinary ride!”
--Whitley Strieber, New York Times bestselling author of Hybrids
