Blood Behind the Smile: Black Mafia Blood Prince Book One
Blood Behind the Smile is a fictional account of a supposed decimated Philadelphia African American crime group called the Black Mafia. The men who resurrect this "evil" have walked a Pennsylvania state penitentiary red-clay yard for ten years, planning the return to the top of the organization.
Two of the Black Mafia's cofounders have given this responsibility to a particularly nasty piece of work, who they dimly refer to as their Blood Prince—formally known as Frank "Dry Ice" Hall.
Dry Ice has learned the Machiavellian tactics of leadership from his mentor Paul "Sir Willie" Reed, one of the Black Mafia's most astute thinkers and feared leaders.
Blood Behind the Smile is not your ordinary urban novel. It has it all—love, betrayal, death, family, and misdirection.
This story is told over a three-book series: Blood Behind the Smile (Book One), Blood Behind the Smile (The Boatman On the River), and Blood Behind the Smile (The Brotherhood).
