Cultivating the DNA of Crime: New Crime Novel Inspired by Author's Life of Crime

Though billed as a fiction, Cultivating the DNA of Crime is startlingly real at its heart.

Cultivating the DNA of Crime may technically be a fiction novel, but the gritty action/adventure is deeply rooted in the real world of gangs and gang crime. Former gangster and ex-con Roy Albert Andrade has released the book, his first novel, through Outskirts Press.

Killer, the protagonist in Cultivating the DNA of Crime saga, is a smart aleck with a comical attitude and an entrepreneurial spirit that attracts organized crime figures into his inner circle. Told in first-person narrative, the story centers around Killer's humorous ideas, action and adventure, through a criminal's unique perspective on life. Killer introduces readers to his circle of friends, and their criminal and professional backgrounds. He travels to Las Vegas and reveals a major fixed boxing match operation, which could end in bloodshed.

Author Roy Albert Andrade, a prolific writer of hundreds of non-fiction essays, draws from his firsthand experiences as a gang member, drug dealer and ex-convict jailed for manslaughter to craft a gritty novel that mirrors reality. Still living on the edge - and with enemies-at-large who seek to kill him on a daily basis - Andrade's real life is as thrilling as his fiction. As an artist, he transforms his creative ideas, infused with the intensity of his personal experiences, into literary works of art. Few authors are able to offer crime story readers both the skill to captivate readers with compelling writing and deep, firsthand knowledge and involvement in the topic and hand. Andrade is one of the few.

K1LLER, the imprint of K1LLER Inc., is the nickname earned by Andrade in Ironwood State Prison, Calif., where he served a prison sentence for voluntary manslaughter. Since his last release from Arizona State Prison-Kingman, Andrade has gained notoriety on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter as a mysterious personality surrounded by an air of intrigue.
