“Power Book II: Ghost” picks up after the earth-shattering events of “Power” as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed.
Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha’s only hope of escaping prosecution by U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe.

As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love, life and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him, only better.
