On the streets of Jersey City there is a simple code. You don't talk to the cops. You don't snitch. Period. But when bus driver Andre Bolden witnesses a crime on his route, he is compelled to make a choice. If he keeps silent, he might lose his job and be gnawed by his conscience. If he snitches, he could lose his family--even his life.

This explosive story explores the clash between a working man and the code of the street. Gifted storyteller Booker T. Mattison has crafted a realistic tale full of tension and raw suspense yet infused with spiritual truth. Snitch rewrites the rule to mind your own business, peers into the hearts of those who seek revenge and redemption, and celebrates the ability of a community to triumph over violence and intimidation.

Snitches get stitches...The phenom of 'snitching' in the black culture runs deep. Please join Denise Bolds, MSW author and parent educator with her special guest Mr. Booker T. Marttison as we discuss Booker's laterst book, Snitch. What is a snitch and how does a snitch impact black life?
