ZAVION "ZAY" MILLER is a boss hustler with a quick mind and a sometimes vicious heart. But that's what it takes to survive in filthy game that spares few. Zay knows that in the streets, betrayal is much more common than love and loyalty. One wrong move can cost a man everything he loves, including his family, his freedom, or his life. Faced with uncertainty in both the game that made him and the wife that gave him everything, only to see it all come crumbling down, what will Zay do? Does he wilt under the pressure or will he crush those who have undermined him. Will CARMEN remain his rider or will she abandon him when he needs her most? When all of the cards are stacked against a man, and he's facing life in prison, does he honor the code of the streets? Or will everyone around him become a victim of A HUSTLER'S DECEIT?
