Love always comes with a price.

After the murder of a dirty Los Angeles detective St. Louis Alexander aka Lou-Loc found himself a hunted man. Trying to stay one step ahead of the gas chamber he flees to New York to try and pick up the pieces of his life.

Fate throws him a curveball when he meets Satin Angelino and finds himself head-over-heels in love. Satin is young, fine and keeping a secret that could cost him his life.

In 2002 K’wan hit the scene with his debut novel Gangsta. What started as a therapeutic release went on to become a part of urban-lit history and an Essence bestseller. Over a decade after its original release Gangsta is back and in digital form for the very first time.
