The story takes place during the late 1980's into the 90's within various towns in Long Island, N.Y. and is based on the lives of Jermaine and Derrik who against their mothers wishes and struggles fall victim to a life of crime and self-destruction.
Both young men evolve into streetwise teens, with new identities, (Derrik "Infinite," Jermaine "Blaze"), and within a few yrs become major players in the street scene. Through Knowledge a cat that Infinite became acquainted with in the slammer they link up with him and his brother Knowledge Knowledge, and members of a crew called M.P.R., Kareem, Takim, Freedom, Jasheem and Divine. The nine of them form a syndicate, friendship and bond that will change their lives, and those they encounter forever.
This is a work of fiction, but the events in this story take place just as they would in real life. There's no entertainment in the reality that these two young men and their friends are willing to gamble with their lives to obtain riches. The harsh reality is that many of our young are living the same reality today, and will pay the same price that these young men do.
"No Love Lost" is a story, which will entertain and educate.
