In Jersey City the code of the streets is simple. No matter what, you don't talk to the cops. You don't snitch. But when young bus driver Andre Bolden witnesses a murder on his route, the code gets personal and every decision leads him deeper into worlds that he never intended to enter. In this rich story that ratchets up the tension and suspense at every turn, the reality of life on the street is infused with spiritual truth. Gifted storyteller Booker T. Mattison's realistic tale of revenge and redemption offers hope about the strength of community against violence and intimidation. Early Praise for Snitch:"Snitch absorbed me to the point that I felt that my life and the lives of my family were at stake. It's just that good. Snitch should be required reading for anyone with a pulse and a conscience. "Lisa Cortés, executive producer of the Academy Award nominated film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire"Amazing down to the last line. Bravo!"Victoria Christopher Murray, Essence bestselling author
