Homeless at sixteen, Kimpa fell in love with aspiring writer Brody Ellis. Needing money, Brody becomes a pimp, and Kimpa sells her body to obtain a piece of the American dream. Isis meets handsome Denairo Ganteeny, who was posing as an F.B.I. agent. After she witnesses Denairo commit murder she realizes the truth—Denairo isn’t F.B.I. but a hit man and she is now his prisoner.
Show Stoppah is the courageous story of women who survive and escape the harshness of two powerful men. Bound together by heartache, physical abuse, and betrayal, Kimpa and Isis design an elaborate plot for revenge. Armed with automatic weapons, they storm the parking lot of a radio station in the early morning hours, taking over the airwaves to tell their stories of abuse, hoping to inspire and unite battered women across the nation. And even though the police have sealed off the building and large crowds have gathered outside the station, these two women will only surrender once they share their stories. In Show Stoppah, readers will see what happens when two women are pushed to the limits of frustration, and exactly what they’re prepared to do to earn respect.
