Since Rae Kwon Lake's parents passed away, he had to learn to survive at an early age. Taken in by his Uncle Snookey,Aunt Melissa, and twin cousin's Dawn and Shawn, Rae Kwon's life isn't that much greater. Introduced first to the drug game by his Uncle Snookey, Rae's life goes from the small time to the big time, but on the way up he get's affiliated with criminals, drug lords, murderers, and of course the FEDS.
Rae's life goes from bad to worst just by chasing that mighty dollar in the game. If his twin cousin's is not starting chaos and keeping the guns loaded, his Uncle Snookey is. Running from turf to turf and eliminating anyone in the way becomes the name of the game and trying all along to make Uncle Snookey proud is the object. Uncle Snookey's object is getting rich by any means necessary and that includes taking out his own flesh and blood. From the small peddlers, drug lords, to the mafia, Rae Kwon gets dirty with each one and while doing this he learns the game changes and staying loyal to Uncle Snookey is no longer the object.

Dirty South was an ok read. I think at times it was way too much narrating of the story. If the author would of let the characters tell the story it would've been much more of an interesting read. The author had a good plot, but the characters were somewhat under-developed. Dirty South is still a story you would want to read and once you finish Darrell King will have your mind wondering is this fiction or non-fiction. Good read for Mr. King's first debut and a recommendation for all to read.

Hidden beneath the long-held facade of the genteel South is the reality of the DIRTY SOUTH; a world of drugs, drug lords, murders and bloodbaths.

Rae Kwon Lake was fourteen years old when he was first introduced to drug deals and power, and the intoxicating feeling each gives. The death of his parents allowed him the opportunity to live with his only uncle, where he was introduced to the high-ballin' world of drugs, fast money and fast women. All of which sets his life on a downward spiral. During the eighties, at the height of the crack-cocaine epidemic, he was only sixteen and had been dealing drugs for two years.

Rae received honors, awards and trophies while in high school, but those things never impressed him, he wanted to hustle; it would get him out of the hood. Rae and his new family moved from New Orleans to Peola, Georgia trying to escape the Feds and embed their dominance in the South's crime infrastructure. Life was good, according to his gauge, but clashes with too many women and other drug lords would bring violent resistance and hostile takeovers. At the age of twenty-five Rae had lived a lifetime, his personal life was falling apart, and he no longer knew whom he could trust.

DIRTY SOUTH is raw, gritty, and ruthless. It gives a surprising view of the life of drug kingpins outside of the typical setting of Northern urban cities. And it emphasizes how in the South, multimillionaire drug lords do power lunches with Southern aristocrats. While King presents a shockingly credible account of the geographical differences of drug life, at times some of the characters and situations seemed a little thin. Still, this is an eye-opening, even believable read on how to reach your potential in spite of a turbulent past. For a real account of some of the hardness and redemption of a slightly different drug scene, I invite you to visit the DIRTY SOUTH.
