Publisher Description

Lamin Michaels learned at his mother’s knee the importance of chasing paper, so it’s no surprise he gets into the drug game when he’s just a teenager. When he meets Zion, a product of the New York City foster care and prison system, Lamin knows he’s met the perfect partner in crime. Together they build a huge narcotics empire.

Then Lamin falls hard for a beautiful girl named Lucky. Lucky makes Lamin realize that there’s more to life than cash and more cash. When Lamin goes legit with a career in the entertainment industry, Zion tries to keep their business going on both the street and the boardroom. It’s not long before Zion becomes the target of a corruption scandal involving murder, extortion, and money laundering. Once the dirt is exposed, will Lamin and Zion be able to remain one step ahead, or will their paper-chasing days haunt them forever?

“[A] fast-paced tale…a page-turner. Each character’s perspective illuminates the misguided decisions the others make. However, despite their bad choices, readers will root for them. The language and situations are occasionally explicit, but also perfectly in character for these Staten Island young adults. While some of the story lines are pulled from a variety of rap videos and rapper bios, the plot also has unique twists that will keep readers going. Urban fiction is hotter than ever with teens of both sexes, and this is a strong entry in the genre.”

— School Library Journal 


  • “Criminal Minded is, hands down, the best book I’ve read in a long time. Tracy Brown has created a masterpiece…a banging story line.”

    — K’wan, award-winning author of Eviction Notice and Animal
  • “Tracy Brown is back with a vengeance! Criminal Minded is a must read, can’t-put-down smash hit!”

    — Keisha Ervin, Essence bestselling author of Me & My Boyfriend
