I picked up this book the last week of May and I finished it in 3 days This book was well written and a definite page turner Not often found in most memoirs or biographiesI m not one to read many biographies or memoirs or at least until recently I was surprised at how intriguing and interesting this book was The narrative voice drew me in If you don t know much about Nicky Barnes the basics will do He s a notorious drug addict turned drug kingpin from one of New York s most famous neighborhoods Harlem After 10 years in the life of narcotics Barnes deemed Mr Untouchable by the cops because of the legal system s inability to convict him It all came to an end after Barnes posed for the famous cover of the NYT Magazine President Carter sent the Feds after him and Barnes was incarcerated for life without paroleBarnes story didn t end there however He went on to set up and entrap hundreds of fellow colleagues including members of his version of the Black Mafia called The Council and two of his main womenBarnes takes readers on a wild ride journey One that he begins at the height of his career before the big fall He segues from prison into the earliest days of his life in Harlem his years as a junkie several prison terms and finally his beginnings as a drug kingpin The final act of the book one of three acts focuses on his last years in prison and the downfall of his organization and his decision to snitch and how he went about itThe details of the novel were uite enjoyable Barnes doesn t hold back when it comes to the material goods he enjoyed during his days at the top His Maserati Citroen the various penthouse apartments across the city and tri state area the fine liuor and drugs he inhaled and the designer duds he and his women woreWhat was most charming about Barnes story was the incredibly charming narration Barnes was witty and funny ualities one would not expect from one of the top heroin sellers of his day For those of us not born during his generation it s hard to imagine that this is the same man that had helped destroy a whole community of families But one in which we must not forgetLastly one of my complaints about the memoir was that I felt that Barnes conveniently gives the reader anecdotes and history about his fellow Council members that portray them as inadeuate and often goofy compared to himself It helps to create this pile of infractions that would inevitably lead Barnes to set up and take out his brothers in the Council Barnes portrays himself as really not having a choice in his final decisions To be honest I m just not that convincedOverall I give this book 4 of 5 stars There was a lot unsaid in this memoir but it was a good read and I recommend it
