Deadly Phine: A Tale of Urban Terror
Darrell King

Each chapter has a statistical fact about the truths about deadly diseases such as AIDS and that make each chapter more informative and conversational.

Valentino, a former soldier, had a very troubled past. He sold dope and was also involved in prostitution as a way to make lots of fast money. He was also the carrier of HIV5x an aggressive form of the AIDS virus. If there’s one thing that this story will do is to make you think about having safer sex and becoming more aware of the company that you keep. This book is an eye-opener on how serious the spread of this disease really is.

This story has a very fast paced story line, and has multiple characters that sometimes made it difficult to keep up with in addition to grammatical mistakes that were at times distracting. The writing style is very urban and very ghetto. The author is applauded for tackling a very serious topic in a manner that not only educated the reader but also entertained. However, if you are not into ghetto urban books than this may not be the book for you.
