St. Martin's Griffin

Kenny "Ken-Ken" Greene left his days as a hustler behind him when his wife was killed during a scam gone bad, leaving him with a baby daughter.  Now he's a cab driver, doing what he can to put food on the table and give his daughter, Destiny, everything she needs.  In spite of his past or because of it, he's willing to do whatever it takes to keep Destiny off the streets.  But when he is shot and paralyzed during a robbery while on the job, Destiny knows that she has to step up to the plate to take care of the father who has provided for her.  Allowing herself to learn from one of the fiercest street hustlers, Destiny becomes his lover and soon her skills rival his. But the longer she stays in the game, the deeper into the game she falls.
