Harlem Confidential by Cole Riley
Book DescriptionIn the underworld of New York City, an old pimp is looking for atonement. The old school meets the new breed in this novel of loss, longing, redemption and hope. Roy 'Cootie' Hodges, an old school pimp and thug, has served 10 years from a 15-year sentence for the murder of a drug dealer. Famed throughout the hood, remembered by the old and new alike, he's back on the streets, reclaiming his old moniker "The Barona" and getting up with his connections. The legend of The Baron has survived his 10-year absence well. Renowned for his style, elegance, street wisdom and the decent treatment of his women, Cootie has become a watchword for class amongst the new generation of younger pimps, whose operations work in ways Cootie doesn't understand. For one thing, they got female pimps now - one of whom, Silky, knows a good thing when she sees it, falling in with the old man when she spots him walking the edge of her turf. Cootie and Silky start running the streets together and soon Cootie is telling the young pimp about his past - the hot sheet hotels, the four stars and, finally, his missing daughter. As the bond between them grows and reports of his daughter with a mysterious, freakish pimp begin to filter through, Cootie enlists Silky's help in a search for the missing girl. The Baron is back - and he's out to set things straight in his past.
