Notes:  I’ll admit, I was really wanting this to be better than it is.  The cover is Blaxploitation at its best, so I was definitely expecting this to be a 4 book rating!  And although it’s good, it just didn’t live up to my hope.

It’s kind of like watching Black Caesar AFTER seeing Superfly and Shaft.  Although BC was a good movie, it just doesn’t measure up to the other 2 classics.
