About the Author
STYLES P (David Styles), a Queens-born, Yonkers-bred emcee, first stepped on the scene as one-third of the famed hip-hop trio the LOX (aka D-Block), a group he formed with childhood friends Jadakiss and Sheek. After guest-starring on multiplatinum singles like "We'll Always Love Big Poppa," and "All About the Benjamins," Styles and the LOX released their albums Money, Power & Respect and We Are the Streets, before the group's members began focusing on solo projects. Styles P’s solo projects include A Gangster and a Gentleman, Time Is Money, and Super Gangster (Extraordinary Gentleman). Invincible is his first novel.See all Product description

Jake Billings has no idea how he goes from being a low-key weed hustler opening his own store staying out the lime light to being a target for everyone he loves wanting him dead. Jake goes to jail for attempted murder and has no idea the hand he is about to be dealt. Instead of folding he holds his own.
Once he hits the county jail, he receives anonymous murder threats. So let the games begin, Jake decides to shut the tv down and give it to whomever in the jail want it but he is not and he repeats not going to be a sitting duck for no one!
One attempt after another on Jakes' life has not stopped his pursuit in the truth, they want war then its war its gone be is how Jake feels. Mr. Styles' made the character seem real, made you root for him thru out the entire story.
I highly recommend this book, the timeline was a little off is the only bad thing I can say about it. It has you actually routing for Jake to come out of it no matter how much dirt he has to do to survive.
As a debut novel this is a great achievement for Styles. Any fan of Styles P will enjoy this book. Any fan of guns and drama and prison and hood tales will enjoy this book. It's not too long, which is good in a way, but it packs in a lot of twists and turns.
Can't wait for the next one.
