The Street Life Series

Jet through the streets with Teco Jackson.

Kevin M. Weeks introduces a new series of steamy, suspenseful, and realistic drama from the streets. In the novel, Teco Jackson joins the Strictly Business (SB) Crew and gets the alias Homicide from the SB Crew boss, Mujaheed Bashi Fiten. When Bashi promotes Homicide to be his right hand man, Homicide gets into a major power struggle with the only female and toughest SB Crew member, Gail Indigo Que, a.k.a. GQ. Living an eventful life from cars, women, and money seemed promising for Homicide until there is a major take down. After getting out of jail, Homicide's mission is to find out where Bashi disappeared. Back on the streets of Philly, Homicide hears lots of talk about Bashi's whereabouts and the names of those who are involved. Will Homicide and GQ set aside their differences to discover the truth? Now Homicide is on a binge to find who snatched up his boss and to pay them back in a way that no one would ever think. The street life, is it suicide or murder?

Street Life Series: Is It Sucide or Murder? By Kevin M Weeks: March 7, 2007
Reviewer: Shay C of PeoplewholoveGoodBooks.
Teco Jackson grew up on the mean streets of Philadelphia. Street Life is the only thing he knows, Teco starts off as a car thief but after a chance encounter, he finds himself a member of the notorious SBC (Strictly Business Crew). Teco becomes a good earner for the crew and soon gains the nickname of "Homicide" as he is afraid of nothing and doesn't back down from anyone. As a result, he becomes the right hand man to SB boss Mujaheed Bashi Fiten. Teco earns the respect of all the members of the crew except one--the only female in the crew, Gail Indigo Que aka GQ. Teco soon finds himself in a power struggle with GQ as she is not thrilled over an outsider being promoted before her. When things finally calm down, and GQ and Teco appear to have called a truce, Bashi turns up dead. Soon, Teco is in the fight of his life, as he tries to find out who killed Bashi and why as the clues begin to point to him. The killer will shock and surprise you! The Street Life Series: Is It Suicide or Murder is a fast-paced, drama-filled story that captures the reader's attention from beginning to end. Kevin M. Weeks is an author on the rise and I look forward to reading more from him!


Taking it to the Streets, December 26, 2006
Reviewer: OOSA Online Book Club "O.O.S.A."
Teco Jackson aka Homicide loves the life as a petty thief and stealing Johnnies. Sleeping at the houses of different women and having just enough to get by has been a way of life for as long as he can remember. With a chance encounter with Bashi, the leader of the infamous SB crew, Teco must step up his thuggle in order to survive the life that is currently not his own anymore.

Gail Indigo Que aka GQ is the right hand woman to Bashi. She will break a sucka down like lightening and enjoys being the go to person whenever Bashi is not around. As Homicide joins the crew, GQ is not impressed or enthused about the pretty boy thief. GQ also cannot stand by while the position that should be rightfully hers is weaseled right from under her.

Bashi knew the moment that he laid eyes on Homicide that he was meant for his crew. With only a few members, Bashi could easily mold Homicide into the ranking of second in command. Bashi also knew that Homicide and GQ would eventually go toe to toe and only the one left standing would prevail.

The first installment of Street Life is a good beginning to what seems to be an entertaining series. At times, I felt like putting my hands around Homicide to let him in on what was really going on. I figured nobody in their right mind could be that stupid, but maybe that was the author's way to making you get into the book and characters. In any event, I look forward to the second part.

Kevin your book sounds very interesting!

Although there is adult content I my opinion, I believe you were conscious

enough to put the parental advisory, which is a good point!

Henceforth, I concur that your book could be used to fill the generation gap that can/does exist between parent-children, and grandparents.

Wishing you the best,
