Paperback Writer today spotlights author Darrell King, and his latest urban/street lit novel, Mo’ Dirty (Urban Books – Kensington, July ’08), as he virtually tours the blogosphere in November on his first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion!
About the author:
During the 90’s, Darrell was attracted to and inspired by the lurid tales of inner city crime and drama that he read on the pages of novels by great writers such as Donald Goines and Iceberg Slim. This prompted Darrell to begin writing his very own stories of urban crime and inner city drama.
Darrell resides in Prince George’s County, Maryland with his wife, Sonya, and their five children. He is also the author of “Dirty South”.
About the book:
Peola’s famous top cop, Police Chief Mickey O’Malley vows to assist Daufuskie Island’s fledgling police force with training and recruiting to crack down on the sea island’s rising drug trade. O’Malley’s success as a police chief is well documented in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Peola Counties, where his hard-edged, highly unorthodox style is policing has brought both praise and criticism his way.
“The controversial police chief stated, ‘Criminals are criminals. It doesn’t matter whether they’re punk kids vandalizing churches with spray paint, or millionaire drug cartels flying coke into our country from Colombia. They’re all scum to me, and their crimes can’t be tolerated for any reason. I live to lock these animals up and see to it that they’re taken off the streets for a helluva long time, ’cause I don’t want ’em in my town, my state, my region, or in my country. Period.”
