He uses his power as a cop to rob inner city drugs dealers on a regular basis. The tax free money is the path to keep Sandra happy and she continually asks for more and more expensive items.
Phats places himself in risky situation on a daily basis to keep his wife happy. He loves the feeling of power he receives from manipulating drug dealers on the inner city streets. Why should they be the only ones collecting tax free money? He thought to himself. The streets belong to him and he’s willing to do what ever it takes to prove that fact.
My Review: The first think you'll notice about this book, the chapters aren't numbered. They are titled. I always seem to enjoy that more.
This book is something that most everyone can relate to. It's not an overdone and unbelievable character. Most all of us know someone like Sandra. There are definitely times you want to slap the greedy Sandra. In this book Daryl makes you laugh, there's humor in it. But there's also the underlying tone of what greed can do.
A great book to pick up for a weekend read.
