As the kingpins of the notorious DFL (Dogs for Life) family, Dayvon and Ty have lorded over West Baltimore's thriving drug trade for years. But things change quickly when Ty gets sent to prison on a suspect charge. Dayvon has decided he's had enough of the game, and he wants out. Of course, going straight is much easier said than done. Feeling as though he's been left in the lurch, and wondering whether Dayvon had something to do with his incarceration, Ty plots a brutal revenge. Dayvon, of course, isn't about to lie down and let Ty play him without a fight. To complicate matters further, Lil' Jay and Stink, a volatile pair of up-and-coming crew members are preparing to make their own bid for control of the DFL family. A Thug's Life is a wrenchingly emotional, action-packed thriller that promises to rivet readers from the first page. Against an unrelentingly bleak urban landscape, author Thomas Long mixes an explosive cocktail of sex, drugs, murder, and crime. He mines the troubled interior lives of Dayvon and Ty as they wrestle with their outsized demons and ultimately face off in a vicious battle of wills. As the novel races toward a brutal culmination, one thing becomes chillingly clear above all else: when it comes to the thug's life, no one truly escapes without paying the steepest of prices.
