Timmie Tom finds himself homeless with no means of supporting himself, violating his parole. A old high school pal sends Timmie Tom to a cousin's house in Dallas, TX where he can earn some money to hire a decent lawyer to address his legal woes.

To his dismay, he finds out that his buddy's cousin is in the "game" of dealing meth and hustling stolen goods for cash - not the life Timmie Tom wants for himself any more.

Backed into a corner, he finds himself doing what landed him in prison all those years ago - cooking meth - but he vows only to do it long enough to raise enough money to hire a qualified lawyer.

Along the way Timmie Tom meets his soulmate, Destiny Lehayne, along with two crooked cops trying to force him to stay in the game after he cooks a single batch of the best rainbow meth the world has ever seen. His meth is so powerful that has the ability to inspire a whole new epidemic.

Together, Timmie Tom and his beloved Destiny embark on a dangerous adventure to clear his name as he delves deeper into his spirituality to find that the words 'loyalty' and 'honesty' do indeed mean more to him that his very life.
Best part of story, including ending: I enjoyed this story because of its real-world possibilities. The story displays how a person can certainly be different today as opposed to who they used to be.

Best scene in story: Near the end, Timmie Tom and Destiny have a chance at real redemption - helping others who have been or might be lured into the very same circumstances they amazingly survived.

Opinion about the main character: The name of the main character itself - Timmie Tom. What kind of a grown man with volumes of life experience walks around introducing himself with pre-teen like name?
