Mistress of manipulation Diamond Reed always gets what she wants. As a single mother to her teenaged son, Diamond transforms into a vicious cougar with an insatiable appetite for men less than half her age. She preys on her son's friends for sex, molding them into a team of young men who line her ever-growing pocketbook with the spoils of crimes they commit under her leadership. Dante Reed, although always against his mother's promiscuous and conniving ways, somehow gets pulled into her web of deceit under the pretense of motherly love. But when Diamond and Dante are busted for a plan gone wrong, their lives hang in the balance as they face life in prison. The stakes are high, there are too many loose ends, and Dante begins to doubt the flawless love his mother has hypnotized him with for so many years. What will it take to turn blood against blood, friend against friend, brother against brother? What will it take to shatter the veneer of the Diamond Syndicate?
