Baker & Taylor
After he and his aunt's plan to use a loan-shark loan to finance a credit-card scheme backfires, Greg "GP" Patterson must figure out a way to get the money back to so he can take care of his family--and save himself from getting murdered.

Simon and Schuster
In this fast-paced multicultural drama, an honest family works to survive the pitfalls and struggles of economically fraught times.

An entertaining cautionary tale for today’s economically fraught times

The bills are due again for Greg “GP” Patterson, but this time, they won’t get paid. He and his wife are facing robbery charges after a simple assault gone bad. After a few days in jail, the Pattersons risk losing their children forever.

Luckily, Aunty Jewels bails them out, but GP must make some serious moves if he is to provide decent shelter for his family again. A visit to Squeeze, a villainous loan shark, leads to killer interest rates and a murderous default penalty. Nevertheless, GP accepts the terms.

When he gives Jewels the loan money to flip in a high stakes credit card scheme, she gets robbed for every single dime. Now GP has to figure out how to pay his debt and gain the respect of his family again, but Jewels has already figured out how to make everybody pay.
