Respect the Jux
In Jamaica . . . Cat learned the art of the “jux”: robbing people by studying their everyday movements. By the age of ten, he had his first gun. At fifteen, he committed his first murder. In New York City . . . he created The Order and taught his crew how to pull off the perfect jux. Robbed dealers, pushers, and thugs. And raked in millions. Then Cat was betrayed—by one of his own men.
In Miami . . . he sets up a new operation. Bigger game, higher stakes. The targets are prime, the payoff is huge, and the parties are off the chain. But now more than ever, Cat has to play by his rules: Never trust a thief. Never get caught. And always . . .

Forced to split up, the crew plans to reunite in Miami and team with party promoter Gamble to pull off the biggest jux any of them has ever seen. Will their pasts catch up with them before they can pull it off, o see more
