City Within A City-A Gangster's Story
Author: Sherry Clark Thomas.
A tell all book of the life of a criminal, his prison stays, his love life and an amazing interaction with the spiritual world that was part of his life since his childhood.
This is a most unusal crime story. It is laced with sexually explicit details, intrigue, drugs, prostitution, Mafia connections, and abuse. It will also take you to the limits of what a man does to survive to live as a criminal and how he becomes a chameleon to people around him with so many personalities that no one is the wiser of who he really is. This story will also show you the limitless boundaries a woman will go to when she becomes trapped in the charms and lifestyle of a seasoned felon. The truth is stranger than fiction in this raw, human story.
