T.H. Moore has written a book that literally jumps off the pages with imagery and emotion. “The End Justifies the Means” is such a breath of fresh air from the typical urban crime book. The reader is introduced to the main character Jalen, when he is a young boy and he saw his father beat his mother on a regular basis. A tragedy occurs and Jalen and his mother relocate to her hometown of Camden, New Jersey.
As a teen, Jalen is regularly beat up and brutalized because he had made the choice to focus on his academics and leading a “straight” life rather than joining the drug game. Jalen’s older cousin, Kevin, looks out and protects him since he does have street credibility. Kevin is a drug dealer but once his girlfriend becomes pregnant he realizes he wants a better life for him and his family. Kevin decides to join the Camden police academy.
Jalen helps Kevin turn his illegal money into legal money in various real estate ventures. But, Jalen’s world is once again turned upside down when Kevin is shot. Moore then takes us, the readers, into an adventure to see if Jalen will continue to life his life on the straight and narrow or will he succumb to the family “business.”
Very well done T.H. Moore!
