This is book number 5 in the Beautifully Unbroken (TM) series.
The SWAT swarm Mona Blaise's house like heavily armed black bees to a honeycomb. They surround the exits, the windows, the basement door. With bated breath, they wait for the take down. This take down will be one for the history books. For the notorious Mona Blaise, drug kingpin, is defeated and finally shut down.
Or so it seems.
Mona is indeed arrested, tagged, booked, and chained. Yet she accepts her fate with a wink. She knows full well that her paid workers, many of whom are police and judges, will eventually release her. Mona is fearless and strong. Powerful and intimidating. Loveless.
Such traits do not pass on to her sixteen-year-old son, Tyler Blaise. Tyler's innocence is real and palpable. He is not like most teens his age. His mind is slower. His heart bigger. His intentions, child-like and pure.
Like Mona, Tyler is also arrested in the raid. He is caught with 84 grams of cocaine hidden in his cargo pants. He is mercilessly charged with drug dealing. He is thrown into a juvie jail cell like unwanted black trash.
Tyler's court-appointed attorney is convinced of his innocence and works diligently to drop the charges against him, but the wheels of justice begin to whirl in the opposite direction. His attorney soon realizes that at every turn in Tyler's past and present life, he is failed by someone in the position of authority.
But Tyler's hope proves to be of no match for his dismal circumstances. After Tyler and his attorney struggle with lying police officers, crooked judges, bloodthirsty prosecutors and a vengeful mother with everything to lose, Tyler miraculously wins his freedom.
As Tyler moves on to a new life, he leaves behind a trail of people forever impacted by his hopeful and determined spirit.
