Korey Taylor, a.k.a. "Killa Korey" and his ace, Hammer, were sentenced to serve two decades in federal prison, but after an unexpected change in the crack cocaine sentencing laws, Korey is released. Now he's on his way home to Charlotte, North Carolina.
Like Hammer, Korey is a thug with a violent nature, nothing to joke around with in the cold streets. However, while serving his time, Korey took classes that he hoped would help him become someone other than a drug dealer. Armed with a new way of thinking and a deep desire to reconnect with his teenage daughter, Korey wants to wave goodbye to the game.
When he immediately links back up with Hammer, who was released months before him, Korey finds his most sincere intent to go straight challenged. He is reminded of their brotherhood and the street oath that he and Hammer vowed to never go back on. Korey is left with a serious decision to make in their world, where disloyalty is an unpardonable fault.
Partnerz in Crime is a high-powered street tale of unbreakable love and loyalty.

OMG this story ROCKED
When I say Kareem totally shocked me. I am not lying. This is my first listen and I am glad to be introduced to such talent. He is a young man with a huge vision. I felt like I was watching the entire movie as I listened. From the voice changes to the gun shot sounds, I am convinced this author is ready to top all black male authors and give them a run for their money.
The title... loved it. It goes so well with the book. And knowing the meaning behind it, I am glad he chose this title to depict a great tale.
Cover art... ehhh, could've been deeper and not include the gun. These guys were more than gun tooting fools. They were business men so a suit and tie with a set of twins as the backdrop would've been great.
The story was read by someone who annunciates perfectly. Big ups to the narrator.
The story itself packed a powerful punch and one lesson that trumped all: loyalty. As an author myself, my characters remain loyal to their friends and family. There was no backstabbing, no arguing, no black woman fighting black woman, and no hood crimes. this book was a showcase of what it's really like when a father over loves his daughter, his wife and his woman. Being that I believe in polyamory, Kareem did a great job depicting how a man can take care of two families in different homes and not pit one woman against the other.
I would recommend all of my own readers to grab this hard copy or ebook and dig in.

Well this book was okay. I did like how the book jumped ahead eight years. I also like the relationship korey and hammer was true brothers. I did like there relationship. If there is a book two I will probably buy it. I did like the ending.
