The basis for a major motion picture to be released in fall 2005
starring Mario Van Peebles, "Carlito's Way" is a taut and
unputdownable tale of a young Puerto Rican man and his rise to the
top as the king of heroin distribution in Harlem. Drug dealer,
thief, murderer, Carlito Brigante was once just another Spanish
Harlem street punk with a poor boy's dream of flash and fast
money-and as he gets older he determines that it's either take or
be took, and he knows which role he's going to play. Soon he's a
Mob-connected professional with an easy charm, joie de vivre,
stubborn pride, and a hair-trigger temper. But the rules change
rapidly in a sudden death world of scams, sell-outs and payback,
where only the strongest and smartest predator can be King of the
Barrio. And when his mentor Rocco's old-school gentlemanly uncle
Dom Cacuzzo dies, the new boss is a steel-eyed killer with no love
for either Rocco or his Puerto Rican protigi Carlito. And when a
shipment of heroin is abandoned and being watched by the Feds,
Rocco and Carlito have some impossible choices to make.
