Sereniti Hall, who wrote A Treacherous Hustle, said, “Falicia Blakely wants everyone to know the entire story not just some of it. The film is only a small piece. There’s so much that people don’t know about her until they read the book. Her story is very sad. You have no clue how sad—even the editor, Linda J Wilson, was crying.”
