Chris Champ Napier was only four years old when he witnessed his father's murder. By the time he was thirteen, Napier had lived in seven different homes in seven different ghettos. Biologically and socially, he was raised in a pool of piranhas, barbarians, and sharks. At eighteen, Napier was convicted of killing a man and was sent to prison. This memoir narrates Napier's story as he navigates a childhood of poverty in Prichard, Alabama; serves more than a decade and a half in prison; and transforms his life by becoming Muslim and devoting his life to Allah. We were so broke I had to eat dry saltine crackers or ketchup sandwiches with the end parts of the bread and drink sugar water, when we didn't have kool-aid. These times were hard for us. I can recall a lot of times on the weekend that someone from the club or from somewhere would burglarize our house and we would have to play like we were asleep until they left. The only thing they could not steal was a small black and white TV and portable radio.

People who think they know everything are not willing to change anything. Some people think that all they have in life is what is in front of them. So they settle. They stay weak. Looking at Mary Thompson, she has it all in tact; the perfect painted face, the perfect hairstyle, and is well dressed, however, underneath the woven layers, lays dormant, a killer of souls. He is all she knows, or is it? Mary Thompson never expected to grow up the way she did, abused, misused, and rejected around each corner. All grown up, looking in the mirror, is when her true enemy reveals himself to her. She discovers that he is her family's enemy too. Only Mary stands a chance of saving them from an eternal death. But can she save them? Can she even save herself from sliding deeper into a dark pit, only to have the enemy ravish her again? Will she have enough strength to carry that endless burden? Psychologically destroyed, unstable and inexperienced in the strategies of spiritual warfare, Mary stands on a thin line between fear and faith, death and life. Will the dark side's gauntlet of trouble and turmoil keep her in bondage? Or will the grace of God, and her prophetic dreams lead to her deliverance?
