I enjoyed Tracy Brown’s novel White Lines so much that I decided to pick up another title by her to see if it was just a fluke! Nope, it wasn’t. Twisted was a great read as well. In Twisted, we get a more intricate look at the money, glitter, and glam, that pulls people into a life in the drug game. Why risk your life, breaking the law? Well, easy money seems to be the answer. However, Tracy Brown breaks down the motivation behind the men and women whose lives are intertwined in the drug game. Instead of portraying them as one-dimensional criminals, Tracy Brown somehow manages to tell their story with fairness and criticism.
By the end of the book, we care about what happens to the novel’s lead character Celeste, even if we don’t agree with all of her choices. Brown’s characters have misadventures in both New York and “Hotlanta” as Celseste’s past affiliations with powerful men catch up to her. This book has an ending that I never saw coming & just like her previous novels, this story is more than a regular urban drama- it has a plot that gives substance to the trials and errors of the characters. The only flaw that I found in this book was that some of the actions of the characters were unbelieveable at times, but I would tell the reader to stick with it because the novel is definitely a shocker at the end.
