More informationSolomon Jones is an Essence best-selling author and Kirkus Reviews raves that Pipe Dream is an “impressive debut.” Black, formerly known as Samuel Jackson, is a crack addict caught in the violent world of the drug trade on Philadelphia’s mean streets. But that doesn’t mean Black is guilty of murdering city councilman Johnny Podres. And his innocence doesn’t mean that he won’t be tried and convicted for his crime. He and three other of his friends are going down for the killing, and Black has only one chance to turn things around.
