Summary
  • "Sugar, that rare commodity an honest thief, is as loyal and tough as a pit-bull. When Sugar is found packing a gun during a rape investigation, the cops throw him in a line-up and encourage the victim to finger him. The cops know he wasn't involved in the rape but they also know his alibi puts him at a jewelry heist across town. They don't care whether he goes down for the rape or gives up his accomplices and nabs a get out of jail free card. Trapped between his integrity and selling out, Sugar does the only thing he knows: He takes the weight for a crime he didn't commit. Jail is nothing new to Sugar. He can walk the walk. It also doesn't hurt that he is over six feet of solid muscle. But when he gets out the mastermind behind the robbery, Sully, leans on him for a favor. Sully asks Sugar to go to Florida on a job. Sugar takes the job, wondering whether he's being set up and what he finds that not only is he strong physically, but cunning too. From the mean streets of New York City to the sultry nights of Florida, The weight takes readers on a riveting journey of a theif professional who for better or worse is on the last job of his criminal career."
  • Caught between going to prison for a crime he didn't commit or ratting out his fellow thieves, Sugar opts for the prison time. When he is released and claims his share of the money from mastermind Solly, Solly asks him to help clean up a loose end, a task that leads to further trouble
