Taking place shortly after the first book, Take It for the Truth, two brothers fight to remain on the streets of Baltimore. With time running out, they must decide whether to stay in the game or get out before it is too late. TRE is the voice of reason. He knows that the best thing for them and their loved ones is to become legit. He thinks that they have done enough to live comfortable lives. GINO, on the other hand, lives for the game. There can never be enough money for him. This is what he was born to do. After Gino almost dying after being shot by some rivals, Tre has decided that it is time to stop. But is it too late? With SHUK still hot on their trails, the brothers’ time might have just run out. Can they trust the women in their lives? Their business partners? Once the Feds start their arrests, loyalties become nonexistent. Gino finds himself facing a much larger sentence than Tre. After BIG COBB learns that the Government wants to put him to rest, will he give up the Mexicans, Ray and Twenny?
