REPRINT EDITION WHAT HAPPENS IN THE LOU, STAYS IN THE LOU...Kiley Jacoby Abrams, a twenty seven year old serious Black man has the next several months cut out of him. He's private, full of secrets, and running from a life of crime. If that's not enough, he's got more setbacks than any one man can handle: an arrogant troublesome brother, a sneaky playa-hating friend, a friend who turns to him for everything, and a woman who claims to have his back. After moving from Los Angeles to St. Louis, Kiley soon realizes that trouble follows him anywhere he goes. Fighting to stay on the right track, a secret from his horrifying past evolves and refuses to let him do so. And when Kiley's paranoia and desire for women start to take effect, the outcome of his decisions could very well be costly.
