No matter how much you stay in your own lane and keep your eyes on your own paper, life will find a way to knock you down and dare you to bounce back. Aniqa learns that first-hand when she tries to put Je’Marcus in her rearview, only to come face-to-face with a mother’s worst fear. Linc has just enough reach and rule to dead even the most powerful foe, but will it all be enough to end Aniqa’s nightmare?

When Linc learns that Aniqa was dragged into a business vendetta, it’s even more reason for him to make the streets feel his wrath when someone takes revenge a little too far. Will Linc even the score in time, or will this latest attack bring the Carmichaels to their knees?
