The "Essence" bestselling first novel in a gripping trilogy.
Wahida Clark's "Thugs" trilogy is set to be a classic, with "Thugs and the Women Who Love Them" and its sequel "Every Thug Needs a Lady", storming the "Essence" bestseller lists.
In a 'hood boiling over with sex, brutality and crime, three friends are at a turning point.
They can surrender to the streets - and the murderous men who rule there - or walk a totally different path.
But nothing is simple for women addicted to life on the edge. And everything has consequences. Angel, Jaz and Kyra are all leading double lives, torn between working hard to leave the ghetto behind and being dragged back in by the lying, pimping, drug-dealing men they can't seem to let go.
From jealous rampages to bloody turf wars and rage-fuelled vendettas, a tangled web of sex and violence binds these women to the place that could destroy them.
