  • I found it somewhat difficult to follow due to the use of the street lingo of the era. I'm familiar with some, but not all of it. Iceberg Slim tends to use it, almost exclusively, in this one. But I love the way he weaves a tale. He's very detailed.

  • This story revolves around Jesse Taylor and some dude named Jimmy, an Italian guy. I forget his last name. The story was fast paced, characters solid and both had a back story. Very interesting and hard. You can compare this one story to the Kenyatta stories like Crime Partners, Death List, etc. It amazes me that everything that takes place in this one story is comparable to a whole series. This story paved the way for protagonist in the Dutch series. A lot of fighting, a lot of guns, a lot of dying. I would suggest anyone reading this to get ready sit back and enjoy the show.....the gun show.

  • But otherwise in good shape. Watch for the condition classifications carefully

  • "Death Wish" by Iceberg Slim is a fantastic piece of work, one of which gave Robert Beck the title of Best Black Author. The action is fast and real, you get an inside view of the Mafia vs Black dope dealers, and the gritty manner of deaths these opponents killed with. Lives are lived, torn, family and friends sacrificed, and lives lost - all in the hope of becoming the biggest member of either side.

    For anyone who has never read Iceberg Slim, I highly recommend it. If you are a fan of the late Donald Goines, I guarantee you will be a bigger fan of Iceberg Slim.
