The compelling sequel to No More Time-Outs finds Wisdom Jones accepting the terms of a deadly proposition from his old enemy: a life for a life.
Wisdom Jones’s mother needs a kidney and the only donor is one of his old enemies, Highnoon, who offers the organ for the chance to kill Wisdom. Jones accepts the proposition, but issues a stipulation of his own: he wants one week to intervene in the lives of his trifling family members and steer them away from a pathway of destruction.
With only a limited time on earth, Wisdom is left with the task of saving the marriage of his only sister from the wrath of her thuggish lover. The next ones will be tricky, but somehow, Wisdom must manage to convince his baby brother to give up the crack pipe and persuade his elder brother from living a very dangerous lifestyle. But the true test will lie in convincing his television evangelist father that pimping from the pulpit can be costly—a forbidden appetite that could ultimately turn fatal.
Take One for the Team leaves Wisdom Jones matching wits with deadly adversaries in an attempt to free his family from the hand of destruction and deliver them into the land of righteousness.
