Chaser [sound recording] : a novel
Miasha, 1981-
Adult Fiction MIASHA

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Library Journal:

In the slammin' opening chapter, Leah Baker is in trouble. Her boyfriend, Kenny, is pounding her body-and not in a good way. He's determined to kill her, but before we learn why, the novel flashes back five months earlier as Leah, whose toxic relationship with Kenny is all about being draped in money, is angry at Kenny's lack of attention. She sexes up one of Kenny's helpers, Nasir, who is a chaser running a scam on accident victims by towing their cars to a shady repair shop. Verdict For those who don't know Miasha (Never Enough), it's time to get on board with this outstanding writer. Her bold strokes balance the violence of drug dealing with fellas making quick cash any way possible. By cleverly alternating characters' points of view, Miasha lets readers know what's going on, but the players remain in the dark. What makes her latest soar is the spot-on slang and trash-talking dialog, which is both joking and profane. Plus, tension crackles off her pages. Street lit fans will be thrusting this title into their friends' hands, demanding that they read it. Buy multiple copies.-Rollie Welch, Cleveland P.L. (c) Copyright 2010.
