No Exit by Al-Saadiq Banks
Three young men from the same ghetto with similar upbringings but they all have different goals and dreams. Through the "game" they slowly climb the ladder of success, but the closer they get to the top, the more obstacles they have to overcome. The life, fast cars and fast women; tax free money is what they call it, although that is not true. There are taxes to be paid; murder and life long jail terms. Are these young men prepared to pay up?
