After escaping their native land of Haiti after a robbery gone horribly wrong, twin brothers David and Jerry flee to the United States to live with their aunt in New York. The boys continue to go to school during the day, but at night, they are known as Major and King. They quickly get into the drug game but soon realize that there is another more lucrative way to make money... kidnapping. They dub themselves as the Body Snatchers.
Major and King are surrounded by a loyal group of Haitian men who are willing to do anything to get the job done. When they kidnap a man that they think has a lot of money, they soon realize that the man they kidnapped is the son of the Governor of New York. Not only that, but their past is about to catch up with Major and King. Not only do they have the FBI after them, but they also have someone from Haiti that wants them dead.
Body Snatchers by Roze is a story about drugs, loyalty, murder and mayhem. The dialect for the Haitian language or broken English was not present in the beginning of the book, nor was it there when the boys came to America. The author makes mention that the boys spoke broken English, but I would have liked it if the author would have written how they spoke. Not only that, but the timeframe was unclear, making the story a bit confusing. The author failed to have the characters have a voice of their own. At times, I was not sure what character I was reading about because there was no real distinction between them. There were also a few scenarios that were simply unbelievable. I think with a little more development with the storyline, Body Snatchers could have easily been written into one novel and the rating could have rated higher.
