The world is plagued by sin and in the gritty streets of New York, the seven deadly sins reign prevalent in the drug world. Manuel "Madness" Fils- Aimé, is a Haitian immigrant who came to New York City as a teenager and within a few years time built up one of the most lucrative and bullet proof cartels the game has ever known. Under Madness' regime, money came hand over fist and everybody ate with no problems. All while eluding some of the hardest working federal agents the state had to offer. With and undeniably bad bitch on his arm and the drug game at his feet, everything was going perfectly until a blinding light is cast on one of his deepest, darkest secrets. Now, Madness struggles to keep himself and his brand reputable as new alliance form against him and the number of people who want a front row seat at his demise increases by the minute.
Kyree "Havoc" McKissick has been grinding and playing the back as one of the top distributors in Madness' Black Reign Cartel network for years when he is finally called up the ranks and is requested to be the right hand man to the boss himself. When Havoc stumbles across a key piece of top secret information, he sees it as a prime opportunity to make an even bigger move than the one he was offered. Kyree and his longtime ride or die Vonnie come up with a plan to snatch Madness' throne right from underneath him just as the organization's foundation becomes unsteady. The problem comes, however, when their plans change drastically and abruptly...putting all parties in a position they never saw coming.

Her problems are only amplified when she's forced to pay for the sins and secrets of those around her while seeking solace in unexpected arms.
With skeletons toppling out of closets left and right with each secret being more explosive than the last, the members of The Black Reign Cartel and those closest to them will never be the same again.
