Vivian Blake, a former top leader of the Jamaican Shower Posse, which United States prosecutors say was responsible for more than 1,400 drug-related killings in this country in the 1980s, died Sunday night in Kingston, Jamaica. We are definitely saddened, as with any death, said Dr. Peter Phillips, a former Jamaican minister of national security, but I think it would do Jamaica well to examine his own admissions in his establishment of high-level criminal organizations in Jamaica.

Blake and the Shower Posse have been somewhat romanticised in recent years. Their chilling story has been chronicled in the 2003 book The Shower Posse: The Most Notorious Crime Organisation, written by Blake's son Duane, and as part of Black Entertainment Television's acclaimed American Gangster series.

In many ways Dudus was only carrying on a tradition of political corruption . Lester Coke would later be burned to death in a Jamaican jail cell, while awaiting extradition the the United States.

In many ways Dudus was only carrying on a tradition of political corruption, drug running, guns and violence that was started with the help of the CIA. Christopher Dudus Coke’s father was was Lester Coke, also known as Jim Brown, one of the founders of the Shower Posse and a fellow champion and protector of the impoverished Tivoli Gardens neighborhood in Kingston.

The "Shower Posse" is derived from the "shower" of lead it shoots at rivals. Referred to by the FBI as "the most violent and notorious criminal organization ever in America," the Shower Posse was the epitome of drug dealing ruthlessness.

This tell-all saga is in the words of its mastermind, Vivian Blake. Blake skyrocketed to wealth with savvy business skills, but his savage henchmen terrorized the sheets into submission. Blake's men had been raised in Jamaica where murders went unsolved daily. Shower ran wild spraying bullets on anyone and everyone in their way. Their weapons, fingerprints and m.o.'s were not traceable. Most American police had never seen any of them before. That careless attitude toward pulling triggers earned a record 1400+ murders and quickly established Shower's rep.

One of the most rivetting and spectacular books I've read in years!! Shower Posse takes you through the life of Vivian Blake the leader of the most notorious gang of the last century. If you liked the movie "Scarface" you'll love this book. Once you start reading this book you will not want to put it down.

This book was written with the skill level of an average jr. high school student. This is not surprising given it was written by the protagonist's son. Someone who growing up probably was taught the value of objects, ego and power over intelligence and education. It's too bad, given that Jamaicans generally value education and hard work. Theirs is a very diverse culture whose influence has touched practically every corner of the earth. A big deal for such a tiny island. It is clearly a culture with tons of heart.

It would have been very easy to find a smart and talented Jamaican writer to tell this story the proper way. Unfortunately it just tells it in an insipid and plodding style. Lots of useless details, like what people ate before they murdered innocent people, or what stupid pimp gear they wore before torturing their former friends, now turned enemy because of greed. Also, the grammar is just -bad-. I feel embarrassed for all the intelligent Jamaicans who probably groan in horror from being represented so poorly. I could easily see a reader coming away from this book thinking that the majority of Jamaicans are stupid, greedy and violent people who blame everyone else for their misfortune. The truth is the opposite.

I think the book was excellent in terms of its exposure of the infamous drug hustle game that so many get caught up in. The book serves as a true testimony for others to learn from. I however was very disturbed about the amount of grammatical errors in my book. Was it just my copy or is that just how the book is.. if so? Please think about revising the book and coming out with a 2nd edition. I also think a screenplay for this movie would be ideal.

I agree with Big Mu Ha's review. I feel Duane Blake didn't go into enough details about the events that took place. I am sure for legal reasons it makes sense to leave a lot of detail out. The book went into details about people. The beginning of the book is very strong, it kept me the reader very engaged. Towards the end, during the years of prison seem very high-level - not too much detail. I def recommend this book to anyone who enjoys organization crime, gangs, murder stories. Esp if you are Jamaican, you can relate to much of the content. Great story to remember..

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This book has good realistic details, I believed every bit of this story. I couldn't put this book down. The book is an easy read for a Jamaican or an American. The book shows how in the Jamaican community, family comes first, unfortunately due to Vivian's family's greed and coveting they were his downfall, but he never turned his back on anyone. Please support Duane Blake's attempt at showing his father's real story.
You know there are a lot of books that come out saying that certain groups were the most notorious. I heard of these cats coming up, but I am not 100% sure that Shower was the most notorious. I know they were hustlin strong in Philly and were doing things in D.C. and what not. I like Duane's writing, but I just dont think it was enough details. Jamaican gangs were a dime a dozen back in the 80's. And I think it is a bit biased because he is writing about his Pop which I can respect. Good job anyways
