Reviews - What do customers think about Chaos in The Capital City?

"...Provokes deep thought regarding the choices that we make that often times cause chaos in our lives."  May 30, 2007
"Chaos In The Capital City provides a powerful story that is gripping and inspires change."

"Donald Hairston along with members of his crew execute a robbery at a Hispanic restaurant that turns deadly. Igniting a street war that leads to numerous deaths."

"Several members of the crew are injured and killed resulting in Donald and his friends seeking revenge and the cycle of killing continues. It will take the help of a friend to encourage Donald to cease the violent behavior and walk away from crime and temptations."

"Will Donald heed to the warnings or will he fall prey to the violence?"

"This is a great story that provokes deep thought regarding the choices that we make that often times cause chaos in our lives."

Urban Lit meets Christian Truths...  Mar 22, 2007
Urban Lit meets Christian truths in this over the edge novel about life in the inner city. Donald "D" Hairston is a gang member terrorizing Washington D.C. The gang carried out one simple armed robbery. They didn't know that it would set off a chain of events that threatened to destroy the city, maybe the world?

D was caught in the middle of evil and righteousness. On one side, Satan was pulling on his shirt tail tempting him to smoke weed, disobey his mother, ditch school, and kill innocent by-standers. On the other side, God sent a guardian angel, Ronnie, to instruct D on how to life according to the Word. But would D be able to see the light and life in the Word before the darkness captures his soul?

D. Mitchell does an exemplary job at marrying evil and truth in this urban adventure. The dynamics between good and evil are clearly defined and the line is often blurred as to which one you should seek. It is easy to get caught up in the drama of life without thinking of the consequences when you are not focused on the Word. The story draws you in from the very beginning leaving you on the edge of your seat until that last paragraph. The story ends without tying up all the loose ends which may indicate a sequel. If you love the Lord and read urban lit then this is a must have because the drama is so intense it is hard to believe that this is fiction.

Reviewing for Real Page Turners
Conscripted   Jan 15, 2007
Donald Hairston is an only child living with his mom after his dad's murder in DC. If you were on the outside looking in, you'd be confused. D, as he's affectionately called, has become a product of his environment. Smoking weed, cutting school, dealing drugs, he's more than a little deep in the mix of things, especially where being black in urban America is difficult enough. Now that operation safe streets are in effect, D and his boys have to find some sort of a way to keep the cash rolling in.

A robbery, murder, melee and rabble-rousing set off a nasty racial war between the blacks and Hispanics. D, a warrior in the fast life, is trying to be a better person. As he seeks to find a way out of the world he's descended into, he meets Ronnie, a family acquaintance. Ronnie tries to help D see the faults in his ways. D is combating the Amigos, peer pressure, the police, himself and God as he tries to be a better person.

Chaos In The Capital City is a progressively fluctuating scale aided by drugs, violence, peer-pressure, reprisal and the chance to redeem oneself. Author D. Mitchell demonstrates how thin the lines are between trials, tribulations and a little faith. Oh my, this is such a commanding book. I definitely recommend this read to real readers who can benefit from such a wealth of knowledge. Faith without works is dead.
Angel in Disguise or the Devil?  Jan 14, 2007
Donald Hairston a.k.a "D" is a good boy with a fascination with the streets. Always falling for the peer pressure his friends are sure to use against him, D cannot seem to follow the more positive road which always leads him with a ticket on hell's wagon.

After the group of friends mastermind another caper, D runs into an old family friend that is willing to help him get on the right path. Will D finally wake up and open his heart and mind to the Lord, or will his previous actions lead him right in the middle of WWIII?

Chaos in the Capital City is full of action and turmoil, yet has you leaning on the shoulder of intervention and strength. D. Mitchell does a superb job of having you engrossed in the main character's growth, yet not taking away from the supporting characters involvement in the novel. You don't feel like you didn't get to know and understand them. Mr. Mitchell delivered a great debut and hopefully will not procrastinate with his sophomore novel.
